How long did the store tell you it would take for your dress to come in and how long did it really take to come in? I ordered my dress in January. I was told it will be delivered in August. I am getting married in September… yikes! I have a feeling it will probably be in earlier and that the stores and/or designers somewhat exaggerate delivery dates. Just curious what kind of experiences everyone has had with this.

I ordered my dress in Sept, the store said it would be in around June. All of the stores I went to said their dresses take about 9 months. My wedding is in Sept.

@AlmostHisWife: I think it really depends on the designer. I ordered mine last May, they told me December originally, and it came in September I think. It’s a Watters gown.

Ordered mine mid October, was told 6-8 months, so between April and June. It came in mid February, so 4 months! Really does depend on the designer, though!

I ordered a new line of Mori Lee (literally the dress had just come out) at the end of November, and they said it would come in April-May. It came in 1 month! ONE month! I was floored!
But I figured since it was a new dress, they hadn’t had many orders so it came fast.. who knows!
I’m more worried about the bridesmaids’ dresses…

I purchased mine in January and was told it will get here in 6 months. So I am looking at mid July and then I need 2-3 months for alterations…. I am just cutting it as we are gettign married on October 12

I think it depends on the designer. Maggie Sottero has “priority gowns”, which ship faster because they keep some in stock.
I ordered my Allure gown in early-mid November, it’s supposed to be here in late March. We’ll see.

Last year, I ordered my Allure dress at the end of March. They said it would be in by July. But it came in early May. It’s so hard to tell.

Mine isn’t supposed to come until the fall – I ordered it last month. I hope it comes earlier!

I ordered mine in May, and it came in at the beginning of August for my November wedding. Pretty sure they told me it woldn’t in until September or October. I was cutting it close, but I only needed the hem altered, so everyone said it would be fine.

I ordered an Enzoani in October, was told 3-4 months, it came in just after Christmas. I was super lucky!
