Hello! I am having some trouble with my dress arriving in time for my wedding. I ordered my dress in March 2014 and was told it would be here August 1. It has been delayed three weeks and *may* ship today. Apparently there are strikes on loading docks where the dress is shipping from (which is China I’m assuming). Has anyone else had thiss issue or heard of any strikes? My bridal portraits are the first weekend in September (2 weeks from now).

I’m sorry to hear you’re going through the stress of this! I ordered my Allure dress in late November 2013 and it just arrived a month ago…so it did take awhile but no longer than they quoted me (8 months).
ETA: Have you called the shop and asked what plan they have in place if it does not arrive in time? If the shop told you it would be in by August 1st then I’m sure they have some kind of policy to either refund you your money or find you a suitable alternative?

Hmm, I ordered my dress in October 2013 and it arrived the first week of April 2014. I’d take it up with your bridal salon. Are you sure they placed the order with Allure Bridals right when you decided on the gown? Also, they usually take 6 months to come in…

I ordered my Allure dress in April and just spoke with the bridal salon and they said it is scheduled to ship tomorrow and arrive in about 7-10 business days.

My best advice for you right now is to make your alterations appointments immediately. Explain to them the situation & they will be able to do your alterations in a quick 2 weeks time. They do it all the time. Make sure you’re taken care of with the alterations & things will work out just fine.
