    As long as the dress shows up in April, you will be fine.  I had my first fitting at the end of April for my June wedding and there was enough time.  Plus since it is being custom made, there shouldn’t be a lot of alterations needed.

    I say trust the store…if it is a custom gown the bridal shop will bend over backwards and give your dress extra special treatment to make sure you have it on time and it’s perfect. The wedding season will be in full swing in April so the last thing the shop will want is bad publicity.

    I think you should get a direct contact there. I had issues with my dress , so I understand entirely where you are coming from. You don’t have to be a Bride-zilla , but express your concern. Have a direct contact and make sure you keep tabs with them every few weeks.

    Sorry this is happening! But I would stick with the store. It’s probably your dream dress and since the store already messed up once with your order, they will probably make sure they get every other detail correct for you (thankfully there is still plenty of time). Good luck!

    I think you should stick with it but keep on them! Call them every few weeks to check in and make SURE they’re not screwing up again!

    Moderndaisy , I found and ordered my dream dress , it did not work out well  , but I ordered a knock off so i’m sure that had a lot to do with it. But I found a dress that worked. Please don’t let this stress you out too much now!!!! Do what you can now , but the most important thing about the day of your wedding is that you and your FI get married and are happy and healthy!! I do wish you the best of luck and I’m sure things will work out!!

    I voted trust the store, but honestly you should call and check up on a weekly basis to make sure they don’t do this to you again.  If you get the feeling as it gets closer that they are going to let you down, then maybe go somewhere else.  Good luck!

    I agree with finding a contact person and following up with them every few weeks (or even every week). Request written documentation to be faxed to you, including proof of ordering and any correspondance they might have had with the tailors… you can trust them, but it sounds like they need to be held accountable.

    I would trust the store, but like Mouse and others suggested, I’d keep checking in with them.

    I’m glad you’ve decided to go with trusting the store as long as they have the muslin in when they said they would.  And I echo others when I say definitely keep tabs on them and check in frequently!  It’s good to have a backup in mind just in case, too.  I think you’ll be fine, and you’ll get to wear your dream dress -don’t spend too much time worrying about it!
