I think for now…all you can do is wait. Hopefully the dresses will come in. Also, you can get your dress professionally steamed. Ask the bridal shop for a referral or check your yellow pages.

Good luck!

Get a contact name at the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress company from the store. Also, ask for a copy of all the paperwork from the order. That way, if they close you have a name and information you need to track the dresses down. As far as alterations goes, ask the store and also ask around to other brides and see who they used.

In my experiance, the dress shop almost alaways charges more for alterations, so much so my girls asked if they could have family do it for them or take it to a independant seemstress. I think your BM’s will be ok with the cost. Either way they were going to have to pay for something.

I think it might be a nice gesture to do some research for them and call a few places to get prices for hem, sides taken in…and so on. This way they are not left to do it themself, and possibly letting it go until it’s too late.  

Any cleaners can press and steam your dress, take it to aplace where they do it IN HOUSE do not let themship it to their plant in Pakipsy or something odd like that. You do not want to take the chance of it getting lost…

Given your size, if the crinolin can not be bought for the rental price I will be selling mine and be happy to do it for a cheap price. My wedding is in a week from today.

Get EVERYTHING in writing, especially the fact that if the dresses do not come in you will be getting refunds in full for each of your girls. This is them ost important thing. Before the store closes, if they give you #’s to reach them at after they close, try them first to make sure they are not fake. This way if they don’t work – you will know and still have a way to reach them before the shop is closed.

Sorry this is so long! LOL

Breathe – everything will work out 🙂 Keep me updated!
