My dress came in WAY before it was expected- twice

The first time it was because they sent the wrong dress in white

the 2nd time it was the right dress but I didnt like it

I think they just tell you way longer to be on the safe side

They also could have just gotten a dress in your size, especially if you order a season ahead – I ordered a winter dress at the beginning of the summer and was told not to look for the dress till October.  Lo and Behold, two weeks later, my dress was in!  Or rather, the dress had come in in all its sample sizes for the store and they just gave me the dress before it went to the floor.

I had a similar experience order my dress beginning of Febuary and dress came mid-march. I was originally told it would be 3 months. I guess it all depends on the designer and part of year you order it. I was completely shocked just like you when I got my unexpected dress call.

I think this type thing happens fairly often!

I ordered my dress at the very end of August 2009 and it had been delivered to the store in mid November! I was originally told that it would take 6 months.

Call the bridal salon and ask to come in to visit your dress. You can try it on, make sure the color is correct etc… I would not start alterations until 2-3 months before your wedding though 🙂

Go check it out. If everything looks good then there isn’t a problem. They always give you the latest estimated date so when it comes in early you think they did a wonderful job and if it comes in on time, you expected that.

If they have it in stock in your size, then they send it.  Its kinda of cool in a way.  Think of the girls that don’t get their dresses until weeks before their wedding.  I bought mine off of the rack, so I don’t get any of that brand-new-dress excitement.  I’m kind of wistfurl !!

WELL I’ve been told (by someone who owns a bridal store) regarding this issue….According to the owner she said…most of the time, especially if the dress is recently new…the dress can be shipped sooner than the average 4 to 6 months….and when I say soon…its a matter of weeks (got my dress in 1 week and i ordered a Maggie “Jenna”  ANYWAYS…number 1 reason….the consultants are trying to pressure you into ordering your dress that day by saying oh it can take 4 to 6 months to make your dress…my consultant called the company immediately and ordered in front of me…and told me my dress is ready to ship out once she places the order….
