I ordered my dress in January and it’s expected to ship Jun 9th. My wedding is August 4th so I’m worried about not having time to squeeze in bridal portraits and have them back before the wedding.
So, for those who have ordered Casablanca dresses, did your dress arrive the time they said it would?

@peachykd: I am sure every dress is different, but I ordered my dress in the beginning of September and still haven’t gotten it…. My suggestion would be to check in on the bridal salon every so often, make sure they are in touch with Casablanca, and let them know you want it by a certain date. Goodluck!!!

Oh no! That makes me incredibly nervous!

@peachykd: Her dress might be taking awhile because her wedding isn’t until Feb 2013. I wouldn’t worry too much about it because dress making varies a lot salon to salon.

@peachykd: I ordered mine in December and won’t get mine til August, even though I was initially told it would arrive in May. Personally, I want to know whats the point of ordering a dress early if its not going to be made and shipped until absolutely necessary? I purposefully ordered mine super early because of personal timeline issues…but I guess it didn’t matter…
Definitely check in with the bridal salon!

@peachykd: I agree with @asscherlover: ….I think since your wedding date is normally included in the orders, if “rush” orders or sooner dates come in before, then those may take precedence. So 2012 brides may be pushed before the 2013 PPs because of wedding date…which stinks for the gals ordering early for a reason, but better for brides who order with less time. Like others mentioned, I would just keep checking back with the salon, and even call Casablanca if possible. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

When I ordered my dress in November, the shop owner told me that Casablanca wasn’t accepting rush orders because they were too busy. Not sure what the current status is, though. Mine is supposed to come in at the end of May, leaving me just about a month for alterations before my wedding. Hope it gets here on time…

Yikes! This makes me nervous! I ordered my Casablanca 1975 at the end of January. They said it should be here by July, so crossing my fingers!

Yes I would check with the bridal salon. I was told once that different designers seem to have their “busy” season so the expected dates could vary more during the high season. Did you have any custom measurements/changes? I ordered my beginning of April and was told early September with custom changes and measurements..which I doubt will come in on time given the custom changes. Good luck hope it comes in on time!

@peonies09: I did have extra length added and the neckline changed. That’s what worries me even more.
