    I actually got mine (from David’s Bridal) in about 2 weeks.

    Well technically it took from May2011 to November 2011 (six months). However, my dress was sewn incorrectly and I didn’t realize it until March 2012 (a few months before my wedding) and it had to be sent back and completely remade. 

    All in all it took nearly one whole year to get my dress.

    I ordered mine in March and I still haven’t gotten it. It really depends on where you order it from and your designer. But typically you’re looking between 4-6 months.

    Mine took 6 months to the day to get it in, I had a few custom changes made as well but I dont think that affected how long it took to get!

    Mine’s a Casablanca. I ordered it around January 10th and am still waiting! Supposedley, the ship-by date was June 30th, so it should be here any day now (I think that’s what that means at least).

    I was told mine would take 8 months, but it came in 3, I think because it was being discontinued and they were trying to push out all orders of it ASAP.

    Mine was ordered in January I do believe.  It was supposed to come in by July 1st but I haven’t heard anything from my dress boutique yet.  We just had a major storm in the area that knocked out the power pretty much everywhere around here so I’m chalking it up to that being the reason I haven’t heard from them.  I’m not ready to have it altered so I’m not worried.  But it did take quite awhile for mine to come in (for all I know it may still not be there? >.>)

    I chose other because it took about less than 2 months for mine to come in.  I was so shocked at how quickly I got it!  I was expecting 6 months like they were saying.

    My veil took forever to come in though!  Two months LATE, took a total of 5 months! Ridiculous.  Ordered in late Feb along with the dress, veil was due in May. After calling the salon 3 times, I was finally told it came in!

    Purchased mine off the rack at DB. Didn’t have to order. The dress was being discontinued and it was the last one in the store AND it was a perfect fit! Just need the hem and bustle done!
