I ordered my dress at the end of December.
My consultant told me it’d probably come in around April/May but could be as early as Feb or as late as June.
A month after ordering I got a call from the salon saying that I could get the dress altered (and have muslin and slip fittings since the dress is made to measure) at the designer’s studio.
I just got an e-mail from the designer and they don’t even want to start the muslin fitting until late June!
That seems SOOOOOOOOO far away.
How did you cope with the long wait for your dress?
Did you go back to the store and “visit” the sample?
I was hoping to at least start the muslin/slip fittings earlier, but I guess closer to the wedding date is better.

I’m wondering the same thing! I ordered my dress in October, my dress is coming in April, and the waiting is killing me! The way I cope is to shop for my veil (just bought!), shoes, jewelry, etc – the stuff I couldn’t get until I got my dress! It’s tiding me over a little bit. I went to the dress shop to look for bridesmaids dresses and while I was there, I took a peek at my dress but it wasn’t there! I remembered I had purchased my dress during a trunk show and it’s been gone, so I can’t even look at it or try it on again 🙁

I ordered my dress in December as well and I was told I wouldn’t get it in until June. I even called back this month to see if it was still June. hehe
I did visit my dress once a few weeks after buying it because I had no one to take pictures when I bought it initially because I went alone. But at this point, I don’t think I could come up any more excuses for going to visit it.
I’m just preoccupying myself with other things on my to do list and looking at my pictures of the gown. Over and over.
