Mine was a month or less. I still had time for alterations, especially as I had contacted the seamstress ahead of time to see if I could reserve a spot. I had it hemmed, pads added in, bustled, and steamed. Hopefully yours will get here soon but everything can be done quick if needed!

Got mine from David’s. It took maybe 2 to 2.5 months I think?  Ordered it at the end of January and got it in March, I believe… or was it April?  Anyway, the wedding was in July so no worries about the alterations.

I got engaged in December, ordered my dress in January, it came in about two weeks ago (litterally the last week in June), my wedding is Sept. 29th. So it arrivied almost 3 months before my wedding, but right on time w/ what the dress shop told me.

I pick it up this weekend, and have my first fitting. Second fitting two weeks later (end of July), and bridal portraits in August. I wanted to get it done early, because Sept. is a busy month for me.

I have a custom dress too from a designer in another country, I ordered my dress 4 months ago and will actually see it for the FIRST time 4 days before the wedding when I fly into the country to get fitted and pick it up before heading up to my wedding venue!!! 

YES I can totally understand your fears about the timing, my only advice would be to stay in touch with the store (no matter if they think your being a pest!) the closer it gets just to ensure that you are upmost on their minds!

I’m sure it will all turn out for perfectly 🙂
