@MamaMegs721:  I ordered my 5 daughters DB dresses.  All 5 were ordered at different stores. They all received their dresses in less than 6 weeks.

@MamaMegs721:  I agree with Mammy  i order all 3 of my girls BM dresses the beginning of March and they were in my the middle of April.  The last one came in April 22.  I think they tell you that 6 month time frame to make sure its ordered with enough notice.  I had a dress come in and for some reason they returned it right away and we had to wait 2 more weeks to get it back.

They’ll quote you 4 to 6 months.  We ordered my bridesmaids’ dresses at the end of March.  They were there by the end of April/beginning of May.

You’ll be limited on styles if you’re on a deadline, but you’ll probably get them.

@MamaMegs721:  All of my bridesmaids except one had their dresses in 3 weeks or less. The one lone baby got hers in about 5 weeks.

@MamaMegs721:  If you order on line, on their web site, not through the store, it’s usually about 6 weeks – gets delivered right to your house. Then you can bring the dress to David’s for alterations.

Yeah they give you some ridiculously long estimate, but in reality it took… maybe a month?  And then one BM’s didn’t fit (she sent her measurements and I ordered it for her) so she had to exchange it, and the new one arrived in a couple weeks.

  • Wedding: November 2013

My wedding is in November and we ordered at the beginning of the month because DB said it would take 10-12 wks for the dresses to come in and the dresses including my jr bridesmaid dresses arrived exactly two wks later. Don’t get me wrong I am glad they are here but my girls had to pay up front to order their dresses and the wedding isn’t for another 5 mths. So in the closet the dresses go until then lol

i was told 6-8 weeks for bridesmaid dresses.

My jr bridesmaid dress was ordered maybe 3 weeks ago , and came in today, and my bridesmaids were all told a month when they ordered. 

So either they tell the bride something different to get the dress orderes in, or they are just ahead of schedule?

My girls ordered their dresses at the end of Jan for my April wedding and they got their dresses back in less than 6 weeks. I think they got them in 3 weeks to be exact. I think they want you to order your dresses asap so they can get the commission off them sooner. It doesn’t take that long. The dresses aren’t being made. They are already in stock and they just need to be shipped.

@MamaMegs721:  I only ended up going with them because my girls were kinda all over the place and DB was really the only store my girls could all coordinate and order their dresses from.

My experience in BM dresses from David’s Bridal have been about four weeks from ordering to arrival.
