- Wedding: July 2013
I purchased my dress 4 months ago, and never did I think about my dress shipping around Christmas time, but my FI asked me about it last night and said “Well, aren’t you concerned that it’s going to get lost in the Christmas shuffle?” My heart dropped. I’d completely panic if my dress got lost in the mail or wasn’t here in time for my appointment at the salon. I’ll have family in town and we specifically set my appointment date so that they could all come see the dress. The bridal salon said that Christmas and New Years might make the dress run a day or so late, since they said it would be in on the 2nd of January, so we made the appointment for the 5th. They said the dress should be in by the 5th.
Does mail run on Christmas and New Years? I wouldn’t think so… but what about Christmas Eve and New Years Eve? And when they say 7-10 business days, does that include the shipped day and the arrival day, or only the days in between. Sorry for the freak out. I just really want my Grandma to see me in my wedding dress since it is very likely she won’t be able to make the trip again for my actual wedding. She’s ill and this is likely our last holiday with her. She’s 90 and I am very close to her, so it would just break my heart if she weren’t able to see me in my dress in person. She, herself, asked if she’d be able to see me in my dress. She and my grandfather purchased the dress for me (my Grandpa passed away 3 years ago, but before he died he wrote me a check and told me to put it in my savings account for when it comes time to buy my wedding dress. He said even though he wouldn’t be there, he still wanted to have a hand in making my day special. Oh gosh, now I am tearing up!)
Anyway, I’d just like some woo-saaa vibes from my fellow Bees. If you have any experience with this type of thing please let me know. I just need to be calmed down I think! I don’t want to harrass my salon, but I do want some reassurance. If it isn’t here by the 5th my grandma won’t see it since they leave on the 6th.
