6 months isn’t unrealistic…

I know personally my Maggie dress has taken about 7 months – I ordered it in early August (2009) and it won’t be in until mid-May.  I think it all depends on where you are going – and be upfront to the saleperson @ the bridal store and let them knowwhat your time frame is.

Good Luck – better to be happy and feel beautiful on your day :o)

I think you should have enough time to find a new dress. You may have to rush order it. Which dress did you get? What are you looking for in a dress?

I am a Maggie bride too and it took about 2 months for my dress to come in.

I think your best bet would be to try on dresses and once you find a dress you love, order it from a company online.

It is my understanding that most bridal stores don’t send in orders until they have a group of them. So your dress order might not be called into the company until like a month after you actually ordered it at the store. A lot of online companies send in your order right after you place it with them.

Your other two options are to buy a sample dress or pay the expedited costs to get your dress to you sooner.

Best of luck!

Yes you definitely have time!

I planned my whole wedding in 3 months, and so i bought my dress roughly 2 months beforehand. I got it off the rack – so more discount! My seamstress was able to fit me in for 4 appointments in 2 months – all was well!

Don’t worry – you will find something.

No Worries Dollface,

You have plenty of time.  You WILL find the one you love, and you deserve to have it!  I ordered my dress online and it came that week and my alterations lady doesn’t even want to see my “changing bride body” for the fitting until 6 weeks before the wedding.  So- I think everything is going to work out for you!
