Mine was supposed to take 4-6 months, but it took 1.  Although, it was a new line, and my guess is that they didn’t have many orders for it yet.

Mine took about 5 1/2 months, which was scary because it came in less than a month before the wedding! Still had enough time for alterations, though.

I got mine in about 3 months. It came in December but wasn’t supposed to be here until February. I was so excited it came in early!

My first dress took about 7 months.  My 2nd dress I bought as a sample so I could have taken it home that day, but I only paid 60% of it because I started to have sticker shock lol.  I knew it was going to be expensive (brand new line, barely tried on by other brides etc) but I was having a mini panic attack over spending $2000 on my dream dress.  So it’s sitting at the shop just waiting for me to put the rest of my $$$ on it.

They told me 4-6 months and it took 4 months.  I imagine it might depend on when you order.  If you order during their busier season it could take longer (I’m not sure when their busy season is…)

6 months. Ordered it about 8 months before the wedding so it worked out perfectly. Winter wedding, so not a busy season, but a handmade couture dress (bought at Kleinfelds). I was told dresses take 6-7 months and ordered accordingly so had plenty of time…

@gelaine22:  It’s a La Sposa dress.  It would have taken only 7 months, but apparently the dress shops all close down for Chinese New Year in February and they don’t even count that as a month when telling you how long a dress will take…  Oh well, I ordered it early enough to not be an issue!

@riss519 wow that is scary! Have you checked with the bridal store where you ordered the dress?  I was told 6-7 months and I just got mine at almost the 7 month mark.  Luckily I stil have 8 months until my wedding.  One of the reasons they take so long is that they are mainly made overseas (which I didn’t know until mine came in).  I assme they take the slow boat over (literally- about 40 transit).  There was just a strike on the west coast which could be adding the to transit time..  (only reason I know is because I am in the business :))
