your dress is in customs because it was made overseas and the garment has to be checked against the exportors invoice to be sure it is what they say it is and made out of what it says its made out of. if it makes you feel any better i’m in my friends wedding in July. we ordered our Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses last August the Shop told us they’d be here at christmas and they just came in.

Your dress is beautiful by the way

Wow – they gave you that hard of a time for just coming in and seeing your dress?  Perhaps when you go in on Monday, you should just take your dress with you (if you’ve paid for it already!).  Is there somewhere else you can have fittings/alterations done?  I would just be frusterated if that is how they are treating you!  What if you have difficulties getting it fit properly?

Pretty dress btw ๐Ÿ™‚

Your dress is gorgeous!  How nice of your co-worker to help you out with the bridal shop.  By The Way, your co-worker is right, you do have a right to see your dress.  Also, you want to make sure that they ordered the right one while there is time to correct any mistakes.

That is awesome that your dress came in. I second the idea that you take the dress with you when you go. They shouldn’t tell you when to go. How do they know if you have bridal pictures to take before hand and you need it before then.

Wow.  That seems really odd to me.  My salon told me to come in anytime I wanted, to try on shoes, jewelry, or whatever if I wanted before my fittings!

Do you plan to get it altered there?  Maybe you can just go pick it up…have you paid for it in full?

yeah. seriously, take the dress with you and forget about them. there are plenty of great seamstress’s out there that would be happy to do any alterations you need and who aren’t too “busy with prom season.” FORGET PROM, this is your wedding and that is YOUR dress!

 

congrats, anyhow. ๐Ÿ™‚

WOW!!!! I cant believe that the bridal salon treated you that way. That stuff makes me so mad. Mean people trying to taint our wedding experiences. lol. I have had my share of those. The place I bought my dress is awesome though and I hope they dont pull that crap when my dress comes in. I would say go get your dress and tell them where to go because that is un-called for. I would also talk to the manager. Everybody knows that us anxious brides want to see the dress right away. Especially if you never got to try it on. Plus, it is not the bridal salons place to give you a timeline for your wedding!!!!! Give me a break. Bride comes before Prom Queen….thats just my opinion.

go get your dress out of that place. its YOUR dress you bought it. you can go in whenever you want and take it because its YOUR property. and they cant say crap about it.
