I’m not sure that would help get ur dress in any sooner unless u paid for a rush manufacturing at time of order. the bridal salon usually can’t control the pace the designer works at. yes if ur wedding were really in April it would be time to panic.

 @Birdi:  eh I don’t think u did anything wrong at all. Its an honest assumption that it would’ve helped get ur dress here faster. I used to think when they measured me, the dress would be custom made to my body and that’s y it took months to make. I didn’t realize they measured me, ordered the closest generic size and it STILL took months to make. Hell, y dont they have lots of each size already made, ya know, and then just send it as they’re ordered. If they’re making it from scratch anyway, make it my damn measurements! But no. I still gotta have alterations. Ugh whatever lol. I was told 6-8 months AT LEAST for my gown. And the salon is not saying ‘oh there’s a chance it could be earlier’ or anything. 

Eta five months is fantastic to get ur dress. Id be stoked! I can understand y u would be irked tho. But smile, ur dress will be here in a matter of days!

@Birdi:  ya, i dread alterations. I know mine won’t fit whatsoever, well that’s not true, it should somewhat fit in the bust. I will have to try to remember it taks a few fittings to get it perfect and not freak out! its supposed to not fit perfect at first! Plus I gotta wait til AUGUST! ahhh and who knows if ill be skinnier or a lil heavier. Who said wedding planning was ‘fun’?

Yikes! Good thing for that little white lie, otherwise it would seriously be cutting it fine. I don’t know why bridal salons can’t get their lead times more accurate. Unless they’re doing a one-off couture piece that they’ve never made before, I would think that most manufacturers would know exactly how long it takes to turn out a wedding gown.

@Birdi:  

Since gowns can take six-to-eight months to come in, I think your dress arrived as early as it normally would have without your having placed a rush order. Someone at the bridal salon should have told you that ordering November 10 for a (faux) wedding date of April 20 would be very risky in terms of ensuring that the gown would arrive in time for the wedding itself, let alone in time for alterations to be performed. It’s good for you that your date really is not that early. However, I would never recommend lying to a vendor (or anyone else.) If you want your dress to fit as well as possible for your June wedding, you’re likely going to need to tell the salon the truth so that your alterations can be made much closer to the date of your wedding.

That’s such a long wait!

My Maggie dress was on their 6-week dress list, and it actually came in 3 weeks!
