I have heard that there is like a month of work shutdown for Chinese New Year, but that happens every year, so vendors should certainly not be surprised by it.

There were crazy snowstorms in China in January as well.  It was big news, as apparently it was a major economic impact.  Here are some pictures:

My gown is coming in April 9th for a May 24th wedding.  After hearing your posts, now I’m scared it will come in late.  I have no time to spare!!!

My dress was supposed to be here by April 1st at the latest, and it still hasn’t shipped from China! I’m leaving for my destination wedding May 2nd, but I have been assured that it will be here early next week.

My dress from Alfred Angelo was about 3 weeks late and I was given Chinese New Year as an excuse too, but not any snowstorms. Like Suzanno, I just didn’t understand how something that happens every year could affect the manufacturers so. After some pushing by my bridal shop, it barely got to me in time for my portraits.

Yup, me, too.  I ordered from a salon in my town.  It’s a Watters gown.  Delayed approx 6 weeks so far.  My wedding isn’t until July, so I’ve got some cushion time, but I’m definitely concerned.

Hi, I ordered my bridal gown from Mori Lee in May and they told me that the shipping date is August 8th. I checked with the retailer several times and they said that Mori Lee has shipped my dress but it is not delivered yet. Today is August 20th and it took almost 2 weeks for the postal service to deliver the package. I am stressed of this delay. Any idea is appreciated 🙂
