From what I’ve heard, most dresses come in early. I’d definitely give them a call in May and just ask for an update, but I don’t think you should have any problem. Just stay on top of things!

Could you tell us what company your dress is from? That might help in knowing if they run ahead of schedule. For example, David’s Bridal always runs wayyyy ahead of schedule (about 80% of the time) because they search all their stores to see if any of them have your dress in stock before ordering, and most times they do.

as a july 31 bride too i can tell you that i still dont have a dress… ive been looking but havent found anything i truly love… i think june is a good time, i your case i will get a guarantee from the bridal salon that for sure it will be there on June, as for the alterations there are places that make alterations in less than two weeks… if you panic you only will get mad becuase you already pay for it and you wont get anything good out of panic

I think you should be okay. I ordered my dress in Jan. and I should have it in May. From what I hear, dresses usually take 4-6 months to come in. So you should be okay.

I was told that my dress will take anywhere from 3 – 6 months to come in . . . if the 6 month mark is true, I won’t get it until about a month before the wedding.  Honestly, I think they give you that span of time, just to save their butts in case it doesn’t come in earlier.  If you told your consultant what date you needed it by and they said you were OK, I would trust them.

If I were you, I would call the salon where you purchased it and ask them to clarify the time when you should be receiving it and then make an appointment to get the alterations done, so you will be set when it does come in.

If it’s any consulation, my dress arrived in 2 months, and the salon I purchased it at told me it would take 4 months…..the same thing happened to a close friend of mine — hers was  in way before they said it would be.  Now, neither of us had a Provonias dress….Mine is Alvina Valenta and hers was a Anjolique…

My dress is scheduled to arrive exactly a month before my wedding. 4 weeks should be plenty of time for alterations, I’m not worried. For some reason people in the bridal industry like to act like everything takes months and months but I don’t buy it. Worst case scenario , a little extra cash in rush charges should guarantee everything finishes in a timely fashion.

Did you find the dress yet? I would say that you should tell them your wedding date is in June. Even if they say the dress will come “2 weeks” before the wedding that will help them prioritize so that you have time to do alterations. There are lots of off the rack sales right now, maybe you should look into that, you would save alot of money and stress!
