- Wedding: July 2010
So I have a dilemma… I ordered my bridesmaids dresses from the same person I ordered my wedding dress from in China. Four of my bridesmaids received the dresses no problem (although the dresses are not perfect, they’re workable). However, my last bridesmaid’s dress was delivered but she wasn’t home, so they left her a note and said it was at the post office. She couldn’t pick it up right away since the post office closed before she got out of work. When she finally went there on the weekend, the post office said they had sent the dress back to China since it had been 5 days and since it was Express Mail, they can’t hold it for more than 5 days.
I emailed the dress maker and asked him to send it back to me when it arrived (with an extra fee of course), but it has been almost three weeks now and still no dress. I emailed him, and he said he hadn’t received it yet.
I am a little stressed about this… the US post office doesn’t allow you to track packages out of the country (I tried tracking a package to Canada and they couldn’t do it!), so now I have no idea where the package is in the world. And the wedding is now less than 4 months away!! If we have them make another dress, that’s another $100, which I can’t afford (and I can’t ask her to pay for two dresses…). And even if he received the dress, I wonder if he would send it back to me anyway, since he could just “make” me another dress and charge me another $100 for it. I hope that’s not the case…
I’m not sure what to do…. 🙁
