I got word from the bridal salon I ordered from that my dress came in (woo!). The issue is, they want me to pick up my dress and store it myself until it's time for alternations (in August) that are being done by their salon. They're saying that because of the pushed back weddings, their storage is pretty full, so they want people to take their dresses, but I live in a small NYC apartment with my fiance and there is no way he won't see if the dress. Both of our parents live out of state, so I would have to make a trip to deliver it to them to keep, but would then need to make a trip pick it up before alternations/have it dropped off.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought bridal salons are supposed to hold your dress for you? I get they might be full, but is it unreasonable for me to push back and try to get them to hold it? I'm just not sure if it's normal for brides to hold onto their dresses until alternations.
Thank you in advance!
