Mine took about 3 months. It came in a week before they estimated! I also purchased mine from DB.

I ordered my dress at the end of September and I just found out that it is due to be here at the end of April. So about 7 months. I think it really depends on which bridal shop you go through. The larger chains like Alfred Angelo and David’s Bridal usually don’t take as long. Smaller, privately owned bridal shops do though. I think mine is taking extra long though because they told me that all of the beads on it had to be hand sewen (and it has alot of beads)

My dress was supposed to take 4-5 months, but it ended up coming in after only 2 months

@LizzyR:  The wedding shop gave me a lead time of 4-9 months, but my dress arrived in 3 months :).

@LizzyR:  i got lucky. I ordered in November and they said it would be in April but i got a call 3 weeks later. I thought they made a mistake so I called to see and nope…it came in WAY early.

I ordered my Morilee in the last week of November, and just got a call two days ago that it’s here! two months is way less time than what I expected it to take, but I’m happy it’s here 🙂 I won’t start alterations until July though.

Ordered mine last April and was told it could take up to 8 months but it didnt make an appearance until last month, so a couple of weeks over the 8 month mark. I was freaking out!

@LizzyR:  I ordered my dress which is an Allure 8861 in August and the dress came in at the beggining of January.

I think it also depends on the manufacturer.  The reason it can take longer is because when brides place orders as a “Rush” the additional fee that is charged is because it actually interupts the other orders that are in.  That could be a reason why sometimes it takes a lot longer.

I ordered my dress on January 26th and they told me yesterday that it will arrive mid May! They estimated end of June at the store, so I’m happy about it being 6 weeks earlier than estimated 🙂
