Yes.  I bought mine for $200 at a sample sale in August and I am now having major second thoughts.  They say 6-8 months for a custom order.  If you aren’t planning to do that then take your time and try on lots of options instead of buying the first thing that looks good.  You really only need 2 months tops for alterations.  Good luck!

Everyone in this thread who does not have a dress for their May wedding needs to start looking this week! It took my dress almost 7 months to come in, and alterations took about another month. Make appointments and go this week/next weekend!! There’s really no sense waiting. You’ll just give yourself anxiety!!

I had dress regret and totally tried on another one last weekend when I shouldn’t have…. and of course I really really liked it almost cried (I wasn’t ever really emotional when I went looking). All I could think was damnit WHY. There’s like no time left and I have this other dress and sash I’d have to sell. I keep telling myself to forget it.

Got mine a couple weeks ago. Even then the consultant was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get it in on time but luckily I fell in love with a dress that would be in the first week in March which still leaves almost two months for alterations.

Still don’t have mine. I know what I want though, and it’s a bridemaids dress in Ivory so it doesn’t take long to come in. I also fit the size perfectly so I do not need alterations. I will order in the New Year! Get all the Christmas expenses out of the way first lol

My original dress came in.  Left it and my deposit at the store. Just ordered a new dress two weeks ago. I’m praying it will be here by April.  The store told me not to stress and they guarantee my alterations will get done in time.

My dress came like 5 days before the wedding and all the alterations were done in time. IDK why it came so late.
