@DiamondnLovey:  I ordered mine the last day of august and paid for half of the dress. They expected it to come in early Jan, maybe late December. It actually came in December 4th! exactly 7 months before the wedding 😛 But I don’t currently live in the city wher the wedding is and where I ordered the dress, so I didn’t get it right away. They will hold the dress for a month, and I only picked it up Jan. 3rd haha and paid for the rest of the dress at that time.


I think you can make payments whenever you want, but the dress needs to be completely paid for by the time you pick it up and take it home or to alterations….but that is just what makes mosts sense to me.

@DiamondnLovey:  Mine took 5 months to come in. I think we had the option to pay for half but just decided to pay in full.

Mine took 3 months to come in, we paid half up front but have not had to pay the other half yet. I don’t think you pay the other half until it physically leaves the store. Since mine came in with plenty of time until alterations it is being stored there and I won’t take it home with me until closer to the wedding after alterations are done.

I ordered mine in late December and it came in mid-January! (Maggie’s 6-week dress line)

The balance was due before starting alterations!

@DiamondnLovey:  Honestly I find that ever salon will tell a different time. It depends on if they can get it from another store near by (like a chain store) or if they are ordering it from the manufactuer. I ordered mine Jan 10th and was told 6-8 months but if they think its gonna be too close to my wedding date, they would put a rush on it. My salon said that what is remaining is due at the time I pick up my dress. I also asked if I could just pay the balance at the same time as I do my alterations and they said that was ok. I would contact your salon and find out your options. If you aren’t going to be doing any alterations at the salon where you purchased your gown than I would say the balance is due at the time you pick up the dress.

A solid 4 months.

I ordered mine in July and it came at the end of October.  I was surprised it took so long!

@DiamondnLovey:  I ordered mine at the end of November, and they told me to expect it in around May. It was here by the beginning of January! Definitely a surprise.
