- Wedding: June 2012
Hello Hive! I’ve been lurking about the hive since my FI proposed on Christmas Day, but this is my first post 🙂 I have a question for all of you….
Is it weird/normal to have someone other than the shop you purchased your dress at do your alterations?!?
I fell in LOVE with my dress the moment I saw it in a newspaper as an advertisement for a local bridal shop well over a YEAR before my FI proposed. I’ve always known it was the one.
After we got engaged, I flew home to Florida (we live in NoCal) to visit the fam and show off my e-ring and do our “Christmas in January” (I work retail so I can’t take off time during holidays).
Anyways….. my dress will be in *no* earlier than mid-June, but I’m already flying home again late-May for my little sister’s high school graduation, and I really don’t think we can swing two trips in as many months. We’re trying to save for a wedding here – eeeks!
So would it be normal and/or would my bridal consultant hate me for having my dress shipped out here when it’s in and then me finding someone else to alter it out here?
Also – if we go that way, what recommendations do you ladies have for alterations in the Bay Area? We just moved here in October so I don’t know anyone!
Thanks hive for any suggestions :)))
