- Wedding: October 2014
Got the email today that my dress came in. Yay! But now I don’t know what to do about it. I purchased the dress in Ontario but now live in Texas. I will be using my days off to go to Florida in March to visit family and get as much of the wedding details done as possible, and then a week off in October for the wedding.
I know I need alterations done on the dress, my top and bottom measurements were different sizes based on the size chart. If I went back to the salon to get the alterations done there I could probably only go once by taking a day off for a long weekend.
Otherwise I could get the dress sent to Texas and have alterations done locally. We live in a tiny apartment, every inch of storage space is filled so I have no idea what I would do with the dress. If I have it shipped to me, it would probably be in the summer as FI might leave in July if he gets a residency freeing up some space. Plus being closer to the date I could probably leave it at whatever salon does the alterations.
Another option is having my parents bring the dress to Florida in March (they drive there) and I would drive it back to Texas. I would probably have to keep it somewhere in the apartment for a while, I don’t think many salons would let me store a dress for 7 months if I didn’t purchase it from them and am just having alterations done.
