Is it normal that I am 4 months away from my wedding and my dress still hasn’t arrived from Italy ?
I ordered it in January. Lady said that it would take 6 months to get here but I heard that dresses generally come in earlier.
Starting to freak out a little

Though I could be wrong I think that dresses generally come in earlier because they often come from China. And then if the specific store told you six months that probably is the real timeframe for that store.
Give it until the end of June before you start to worry.

I got married two weeks ago and my dress arrived at the end of February (so only 2 1/2 months before my wedding)… and I had ordered it in August 2012. It’s normal.

You ordered your dress is January and they told you it would be in in 6 months (July). It is BARELY June.
What’s the problem exactly???

I guess it’s just the nerwes settling in and the fact that everyone i spoke to said that the dresses generally don’t take that long and if a store says 6 months, it is likely to be 4 months. They just say that to give themselves extra time etc..

I would at least wait until the end of June before I would call and check in, but at that point I would just see if it has at least been shipped. She said 6 months, so it could very well take until the end of July.

Same thing happened to me! I ordered my dress in July 2012 and it didn’t arrive until March 2013. Absolutely ridiculous! My wedding is June 15th and I still had plenty of time for alterations, etc. Don’t stress! As long as it gets here with 8 weeks to spare you’ll be fine. I would suggest calling the bridal salon often…I called every week for a month to “check” on the dress (even though I knew their answer) just to make sure they knew I was keeping tabs!

@Lulume: No need to freak out! 🙂 Give it until the end of June and then call back to check up.

It is only the beginning of June. Calm down.
My dress came early but only by 2-3 weeks.

My dress came in at 6 months. Not everyones comes in early.

I wouldn’t start calling before your store’s deadline, or 1-2 weeks prior. But make sure they know you are waiting if they are late.
My dress was probably lost in the mail or something, because they are 7 weeks late and it’s 1 month and 20 days to my wedding. I’ve been calling them twice a week for the past month.

i ordered my dress in march and i was told delivery in august.
i went to bridal salons that ranged from 3-8 months for delivery.
the place i ordered said 5 months.
my wedding is the week after yours and getting my dress in august will be plenty of time for alterations.
did they give you a delivery date? call the salon and check the status.

My dress came it exactly the date they said it was due, and my sister’s dress was a few weeks late. I don’t think it is always normal for dresses to come in early, so don’t freak out!

You have no reason to worry. I ordered my dress last Sept and it still hasn’t arrived. They told you 6 months, and its only been 5.
