No experience with that particular bridal shop (other side of the country, here), but my bridesmaids are wearing Alfred Angelo. My Maid/Matron of Honor ordered her dress a few days before Easter, and it just came in this week.

I also wore an Alfred Angelo dress as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding, and it took several months to come in… we ordered in the winter (Nov./Dec. I think), and it came in in April (I think). That was a couple years ago, so I forget the specifics. I know the shop we ordered from that time encouraged us to order 5-6 months ahead of the wedding to allow plenty of time for the dresses to come in and get altered, because sometimes they take that long.

So I guess it might depend on the style(s) ordered?

yes, some style dresses are out of stock, so the seller should make them.

it takes a long time.

I worked at a wedding salon that sold Alfred Angelo’s and the longest we’d typically quote was 4 months, not 5. 5 does seem excessive; however, ordering them during the spring is what most summer/fall brides are doing and it is the company’s busiest time. They made have quoted you 5 months so that you aren’t concerned if they come in at 4 months and a week or two.  Hope this helps!

Most dresses are made in China these days so shipping probably adds to the wait

Yeah the shipping really adds time since most dresses come from “off shore” locations.
