Wow, I can’t imagine going through that.  I think I am lucky, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses arrived a month before they said they’d be here, and we ordered three months ago.  Now less than four months to get them altered.

^^ agreed. We ordered ours in March and they came at the beginning of June. Granted she messed them up but they still came.

We’re ordering ours now, but due to your story might just say we’re getting married in Jan 2012. Haha.

The owner of the bridal store called me with delivery date once she actually placed the order. She told me when she called them she gave a date 6 weeks before my actual wedding date. She said doing it this way basically rushed the gown with me not having to pay rush shipping fees of a whopping 100 bucks! I did not ask her to do that, nor did I know she would, but Im very glad to be getting my gown mid August and not late September. I would be a wreck in need of sedatives if that were the case.

Yea, they mis-measured a few of my BMs. I told them ahead of time that they may want to change their size before everything was ordered. Thankfully they did, and the only alterations were the bust (made extremely big for big chested girls… even though my sister, FSILs, and BMs already have a big chest, it was still too big, haha!) Anyway, most of them ordered 4 months ahead of time and got them within 2-3 months. Two ordered them a few weeks ago… lied about the wedding date, and got them in 2 weeks! Yay 🙂

Yikes. We ordered end of March/beginning of April (I can’t even remember now) and I was told they’d be in some time in July. They actually all came in last week. I can’t even imagine how stressed I’d be only getting the dresses a few weeks from the wedding!

I did this!! =) I kept my original wedding date of November 5th on all our records for dress shopping! I’d say do the same for Bridal Gown shopping as well!

I completely agree. My wedding was in May and we ordered in October: 7 months is penty of time right? Uhhh no. THey came in about a month prior to the wedding and because it was right in the middle of prom season it was impossible to get alteration appointments. They also ordered the wrong style for my Junior bridesmaid and we had no time to order a new one so they gave me a refund and basically said good luck!

Very stressful but it all came together!

Damn, I wish I would’ve thought of this before I had gone to the salon. The salon was rude, said the dresses wouldn’t be in until the middle of August, and now I’ll be completely stressed until then waiting for them to come in.
