I’ll have mine in 4 weeks before the wedding. 4-6 months delivery time is standard for the designer I ordered from. I’m trying not to stress about it. If it doesn’t get here in time, best believe I won’t be leaving the bridal store empty handed!

If it comes down to the cut be really blunt with the store owner or manager. Don’t talk to the sales consultants because they don’t have the authority to make big decisions. I know in my case if my dress somehow didn’t come in on time I would be making that store give me a few alternative options. If your dress is coming in brand new and unaltered it will be easy for them to sell it again. I’d probably ask for my funds (or part of them) to go towards another dress that they have on the racks. You could say to them that you will pay for the alterations and cleaning, but you want the cost of the dress covered and they can keep your original gown. Be polite as possible through all this, but if they still won’t budge and you’re left with little options than tell them you’ll be writing an article to the local newspaper, lodging a complaint with the better business bureau, or smearing their name on a review site. Usually they’ll do anything to avoid bad publicity…

Good luck.

I am having the same concern. My wedding is Jan. 8. They said the dress would be in the first of second week of December. I ordered it in May. So annoying. They told me not to worry. Easy for them to say!

There is a good chance it may come in early too.  I ordered mine July 18, 2009.  I was told it would be in early to mid January, and it actually came in the first week of November.

that’s terrifying!

but stores normally tell you the upper limit of the delivery window, so you don’t freak out too much if it takes longer than they say. there’s a good chance you’ll have it early. and i would start calling the shop weekly after christmas to ask if they know when it will be in!
