for storage- mine has been hanging in closets since i picked it up last november. first in our apartment, then in the guest room at my parents’ house, and then in my dad’s closet, and now in my closet. it’s going to eventually (hopefully) be moved to my grandparents’ house. it’ll be safer there, and there’s way more room. it’s in a nice garment bag. there haven’t been any issues so far.

That happened with my dress too!  They told me 6-8 months…i ordered the dress in december and it came in May.  I was soooo excited.  LOL Since the store only did alterations Friday during the day and is about an hour from where I live, I decided I would be better off finding a local seamstress for alterations then having to drive to Beverly Hills and miss work for each fitting.  My seamstress is actually 5 min from my work…and she’s holding onto my stress for me (I did my first fitting already, and my next fitting is the end of this month) it worked out for me, since I didn’t really want to store the dress at home, and none of my family lives locally for me to keep it there. Congrats on the weight loss btw 🙂

@MsYankee:  My dress was due in March and arrived in December, 2012.


I stored it in the breatheable bag, at my FMIL’s house, as it shouldn’t be stored where their are pets or a lot of cooking odors.


I have dropped several sizes since it came in (and it was already loose then), and started my alterations at the begining of August. My final fitting was today (wedding is on Saturday)

@MsYankee:  Thanks. I was pretty slim to begin with so now I’m on the “a little too slim side”. for the past month, a friend inthe neighbourhood texts me every Sunday asking me to come over so he can “feed me”, and I called my mom tonight to warn her that I’m not i;; or have an ED when she sees me on Thursday. 

But stress (not wedding related) will do that to you, and fortunatly my alterations haven’t been overly expesnive ($200).

Hard to believe that almost a year after I bought it, i’ll finally be wearing my dress on Saturday!
