I don’t have mine yet and there is still 9 weeks left until my wedding. My dress probably will come in with about 5 weeks left for alterations. I’m uneasy about it, but I only had 6 months to plan so oh well 🙂

The original dress came in a little over 3 months from the wedding, but it had to be remade because they cut it too short.  The replacement is scheduled to arrive 6 weeks before.  ugh.

my dress came in 4 weeks before we’ll leave for our destination wedding – it took almost 9 months to come in. i if you have your seamstress lined up it will be plenty of time. so don’t worry!

i got my dress on 04/12, and left it with the shop for alterations, and they sent it off, and its now 5/4 and they said its due to prom season that they are behind so I have no idea how long alterations really take!  But if your store is promising you, then you can trust them if they are being nice about everything else too.

My dress should be here 20 days before the wedding. I think 4 weeks should be more than enough if you’re doing just normal run of the mill alterations.

@dianeanthony: Thank the Lord prom season will be over when my dress comes in. I’m on a tight schedule and I didn’t even think of this. **Crossing my fingers!**

Mine won’t be in until next year in January. That was really nice of your salon to let you transfer the deposit!

I ordered mine before Christmas, and it came in June 12 for my July 9th wedding.  Luckily it didn’t need too much in the way of alterations, because I was definitely cutting it close!
