I got an Allure. I ordered it on March 24th, was told it would be in by the end of July and it actually came the first week of May. Now, granted it was a very simple dress (read: no beadwork). But maybe the real issue is your bridal shop.

I’m wearing 8634. I think it depends on the store. I didn’t have a problem with mine, although my store wasn’t great at communicating. I ordered my dress in January and told me it would be in (I thought they said) mid-June, and it was like the last week in June when it came in. 

When I went on July 14th to pick my dress up I ordered the matching veil (from ALlure) and they told me 2 weeks. It’s been over 3 and I still haven’t heard from them.

I ordered my Allure gown in late April and it arrived  as promised about 2 weeks ago, currently at the bridal shop for alterations. I think there may be some issue at your bridal shop. Not saying that there is not a production delay too, but the shop really needs to be on top of these things and it does not sound like they are.

I ordered my Allure 8815 beginning of January and was told it would take between 6-8 months to get in.  I called my bridal salon in May for an ETA and was told it would be in mid-august with a possibility of it coming in sooner. 

I called the salon Friday and the receptionist said it should be in this week.  Everytime I asked her a question she was giving me the run around so she said she would leave a note for my bridal consultant to call me.  My bridal consultant only works Mondays, Monday came and went and still no phone call.  I called the salon yesterday and spoke to a different receptionist.  She seemed like she knew what she was talking about, was polite, and SO helpful.  She said my dress is shipping from the manufacturer on the 11th and that delivery normally takes 5-10 days.  Sooo techincally the mid-august ETA I originally received was correct. 

@Nik428:  Did you happen to get a hollow to hem measurement taken when ordering your dress?  I did, I just assumed that was the reason why my dress took longer than other Allure brides.  I noticed on average other Allure brides got there dresses within 4 months.

I ordered the Allure C202 in January and received it in March. I had no idea that wedding dresses could take 6-8 months to get in!

@Nik428:  It’s a specific measurement. Long story short instead of the dress coming in as regular stock size, Allure is making the dress using my measurements. This way when the dress comes in all it needs is a bustle, cups sewn in, and possibly minor alterations.

I really don’t know what to say about the “product delay” my bridal salon hasn’t mentioned anything like that. Getting totally different ETA’s like that would irk me as well. As inconvenient as it may be, its probably best not to set up a meeting date w. your MOH/BM’s until you get the call that your dress is in.

@Nik428: I got the call this afternoon that my dress is in !!!  I guess the rude receptionist I spoke to last week was right about it coming in this week.  It’s crazy how you can get different dates from the same bridal salon … weird.  Well anywho’s I just wanted to give you a heads up and hope you get the call soon!

I ordered my Allure dress on July 3rd and it came in on August 24th!! So it took less than two months to come in. I wasn’t expecting it for another 3 months..

I guess I don’t really count in this, because while I am an Allure bride, I puchased my gown right off the rack.. they held it for me at the shop until it was completely paid for, got it altered and took it home.

@xdaydreams05x:  Ditto. I did this as well. They measured me with my heels on, so that the dress would come in the exact length I needed it. It’s better this way, as most Allure brides are wearing lace and it’s much easier than having your alterations person take the lace off, hem the dress, and reattach the lace.
