- Wedding: May 2010
I bought my dress in July for my May 2010 wedding, and the store called to say that it’s in. Yay! I’m going on Saturday to meet it and pay for the rest of it, but am torn as to whether I should leave the dress there or take it home.
For the sake of the dress, I think leave it there and avoid prying eyes and stains. But it raises concerns.
Since my wedding isn’t until May, I really don’t want them to start alterations now (hoping to lose weight by then). Do you think the store will be OK with that? What’s a reasonable time out to actually start cutting and altering?
Plus, how do I go about finding undergarments, veil, shoes, etc. if I can’t actually get access to the dress? How have other brides handled that? Did your bridal store let you visit the dress to see how the accessories work?
