If they said it would be in by the end of this week, I would call and ask if it’s come in, and if not, why not.

Is the store close by? If yes, I would go in (not on a weekend if possible) and ask to talk to a manager/supervisor. 10 months is a long time and I would want a proper update on what’s going on.

TEN months? Jesus. Was it custom made or something? I ordered mine in October and it came in in February and everyone was like “wow that’s a long wait”.

Of course I’ve also been told that my MOH’s dress is coming in a few days before the wedding (same dress as the other girls who all got theirs within weeks of ordering). So you have to wonder. lol.

jannem:  that’s really weird then. You should definitely call them and see if they can make an inquiry on your behalf. Fix it before it becomes an “actual” problem.

My dress took almost 8 months to arrive. I don’t know why but that’s standard in the store I went to so it may be realistic time wise.

Obviously you need to be persistant now though. Did they give you any guidelines on when you could expect it to be in when you ordered it? If the store is nearby, I’d go in to speak to them and tell them you’d like them to contact their supplier to ask where it is if they don’t know themselves.

You have time to play around with at the moment so try not to stress too much but get it sorted before it becomes a real issue and there’s less time to rectify things.

jannem: Hmm that’s not a designer that’s known for being late with dresses. If it’s past the contract date, I would raise hell, to be honest.

I ordered my Sophia Tolli dress in July 2015 for my July 2016 wedding. I was told it would be in sometime middle January, so when February rolled through and March started, I called them. They told me the estimate in their system says “March 20” which is completely different from what they told me (by about 2 months).

I’m not really worried. There is still plenty of time, for you and for me, so until it becomes an actual problem, I’ll just wait it out.
