@nickyd914:  It sounds like she’s working with you. She didn’t just go out of business, board up her place, and leave you hanging. I would give her the opportunity to fulfill your contract, this should not be an issue unless she closes and still does not deliver your dresses.

@nickyd914:  I would be concerned. Maybe ask how you will be notified and where you will be picking up your dress When it arrives. I would hope she would have a clear answer.

I wouldn’t stress about it too much. It seems that the owner is willing to work with you. I’d only worry if you couldn’t get in contact with the owner or you went by the place and it was empty/boarded up.

I honestly wouldn’t stress. She seems confident that you’ll get your dresses, and the store isn’t closing until months after your dresses come in anyway, so I really don’t see a need for any worry!! You can always go to a different company so alterations and steaming – most people do anyway.

I wouldn’t worry too much, she sounds honest. But make sure you and your BMs keep the receipts incase things get a little hairy. 

As for storing and alterations; I ordered my dress in February, and it came the first week in July. The boutique I ordered from does not store dresses due to insurance purposes and does not have an in house seamstress. I took my gown home, it stayed in the bag in a cedar closet until I took it to the seamstress last week. My consultant told me “keep her away from cats and water. You can’t hurt her”. 

Don’t worry, I think it will be fine. Good luck 🙂

I really wouldn’t stress about it. She seems like she is being honest and trying to work with people who have ordered things from her. At least she didn’t just disappear! 

She said your dress will be in by December which gives you six months before your wedding. If it’s not in by December then you still have some time to look for something else if need-be. You may not want to hear it, but it won’t be the end of the world. You will figure it out in the end, but I have a feeling things will work out for you!
