- Wedding: July 2010
I just got the call that my dress is in (yay!). I bought my dress at a pretty nice store in a big city (I couldn’t buy this dress where I’m from)–it’s a 9 hour drive/2 hour plane ride away. When I bought the dress my understanding was that I would complete all my alterations at the store and then they would ship the dress to me (actually, my sales person told me this). Now today, the store sent me an e-mail today saying they were going to ship the dress to me now and then I would need to bring it back and forth with me through the alterations process. This seems totally crazy to me–I don’t want to be flying my wedding dress back and forth for the rest of the appointments (talk about $$$!!!). I have a $400 voucher for free alterations at the store hence my desire to do alterations there and bother with the travel. I’m also already going to this city for two wedding in the next 2 months so it’s not really an extra expense.
So here’s my question: Did you take your dress home right away? Did the store keep your dress for you until alterations were complete?
