This sounds like a nightmare! I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. 🙁

No, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask them to ship your dresses. It seems VERY strange that they will only hold them for a week after you’ve already paid for them! 

I also would get someone else to alter your bridal gown. You can probably find somewhere else that specializes in bridal alterations.

I think  you should totally go get those dresses and do alerations elsewehere.  However, dont walk out without trying them on.  Once you walk out the store wont correct any mistakes they may have made with sizing etc.

I think that it would be perfectly reasonable for them to ship you the dresses if you volunteer to pick up the shipping costs. Why they won’t hold them for more than a week? That’s easy. They need the room and they can’t store dresses indefinitely for people. Not saying you will, but there will always be someone that will take advantage, so they have to come up with something for everyone. Call them and tell them you’ll be by on Saturday and if they would be so kind as to hold them until then for you explaining that you didn’t know about their change in hours. If you’re nice about it, they’ll probably agree. Otherwise, tell your bridesmaids they need to make arragements to pick up their dresses this week.

If their hours no longer work for you to do alterations, then I guess you have no choice than to find someone else to do them for you.

The dress store I went to said the same thing on a voicemail, but when I called them and told them my situation (also an hour away with a busy work schedule) they were completely ok with keeping my dress longer till when I could arrange it. Just talk to to them and I’m sure it will work out.
