Tashyadorable :  I ordered a bridesmaid dress form David’s bridal for a friends wedding and got it in less than a week. Then when the wedding came around it turned out my boobs were still too big from nursing so I needed to size up and I got that dress in like 3 days when I ordered online. I was able to return the other dress no problem. Check the return policy. Since they’re off the rack basically they may be able to buy them and return them if there’s a better deal for Black Friday and they get those in time they might be able to return the ones they Order now. I do think you should get them well before feb if you ordered now but maybe different styles are different

I also agree to order it in store. I have purchased 4 dresses from David’s. The first 3 I ordered in store and they came in like 2 weeks. The last one, I purchased online and the wait time online is 100% accurate. My dress came in 3 days before the wedding. Luckily I didn’t have to have it altered, because it was cutting it close. The first 3 were also more common colors while the last one was a sangria color. Apparently common colors they tend to stock more.

When I ordered a dress at DB, they told me to put in a fake wedding date so that it would come earlier. Even then, it was predicted to take a month and it actually came in a week.

They also refused to let me try on dresses that weren’t readily available, because they couldn’t be bothered to call around to other stores. But you could call around to other stores yourself if you wanted.

ashyadorable :  call the store!

I had something similar happen with mine. The online order would have come a week after my wedding, but i called the store and asked them to place the order. Their date was about 2.5 weeks earlier than online.

The dresses came in at different times, one size came in almost immediately and the other was about about a week early from their projected date. 

Online and Store have different warehouse stock.

I just ordered one for a friend’s wedding and in the store they had told me it would take 8 weeks.  I ordered online and it took one week. Did you check other styles to see if they have a wait time too?  You could also look into used if people are flexible on style. There are a lot of used DB dresses on eBay etc.

Looks like they officially filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next.
