A Henderson woman is scrambling to find dresses for her bridesmaids after she was told days before the wedding that their order would not be ready in time. 
Diana Zelaya received the call on Tuesday that the dresses she ordered in December wouldn't be delivered to Celebrations Bridal and Fashions by her wedding date on Saturday. 
"I just kind of just dropped the phone. I didn't know what to do," Zelaya said. 
After alerting her bridal party to the crisis, her sister-in-law Kristin Puhl confronted the owner of Celebrations Bridal. 
"I was pretty much left with 'We'll refund your money and good luck,'" Puhl said. 
13 Action News went to Celebrations Bridal to ask the owner what happened. He declined to talk on-camera, but he said the problem was entirely out of his hands because the New York-based designer failed to ship the dresses in time. 
They're still stuck in China. 
Puhl said Celebrations Bridal did offer them other styles, but nothing worked out. 
"It's not easy to find dresses in multiple sizes for six people let alone the same one," Puhl said. 
The women hope they will be able to find another set of dresses before the big day on Saturday.
