@Stace126:  Aww, sad! 🙁  That will sometimes happen though.  Depending on the designer of dress, sometimes it will take 10-12 months for a dress to come in – if they’re backed up, then you may have to give it a little while longer. I totally understand being anxious about it though! But if your wedding is in September, you’ll have plenty of time for alterations, even if it does come in next month!

I’m amazed you’ve had the restraint not to kill someone by this point! I’d be fuming. Fortunately you still have plenty of time for alterations.

(Honestly, the more I hear about all of these problems with bridal shops, the more convinced I am that replica shops like Jasmine’s are the way to go.) Tongue Out

@Stace126:  Just curious, since I’m local, where did you order it from?

I’d be very pissed off.  Sometimes things do cut stuck in customs seemingly forever, though. 

I’d ask the store to call the designer and find out tracking info.

You are definitely NOT wrong to be upset :(.  I would be furious, eleven months is absolutely ridiculous – especially if the estimated date they gave you was Dec/Jan.  Fortunately you still have some time from your wedding, but I can only imagine if you hadn’t been so dilligent and got your dress ordered over a year in advance.  Did you order your bridesmaid dresses from the same place?  Are you having the same problem with them?  I honestly feel so frustrated with bridal shops, I’ve don’t know any brides from the wedding parties I’ve been in that had great experiences, and for myself, I’m not happy with the shop I ordered from either.  Can I ask who the designer of the dress is?  Let us know what they say when you call today!

I can understand the freak occasion that causes a dress to be that late to ship but what would have pissed me off is the way they treated u. Just unacceptable. I’m happy ur dress is on its way now. Kudos for being so calm in the face of such utter crap!

Wow – the lying and sneaking is what gets me.  FWIW though, my dress took over 8 months to get in.. 

Good luck!

WOW! I can’t believe how long it took – who’s the designer? I ordered my dress back in Mid-December, last I checked it was suppose to ship yesterday, and I was told it generally takes an additional 5 – 10 business days to arrive at the shop.  I’ve been having nightmares that it’s the wrong color, wrong dress, wrong style – I’ll sleep better at night once I’ve seen it! Hope picking it up goes well! I’m sure it’ll have been worth the wait!!

I’m so glad you got it! Let us know how you on with the fit 🙂 my wedding is September, I ordered my dress in July 2012 and it is due in 2 week (called the store earlier this week to check) so it will be 10.5 months for me too so I feel your pain. I have to say that my bridal store has been great and didn’t tell me any lies so I knew what to expect. Am so excited for it to come in though – its been a looooong wait!

@Stace126:  So sorry to hear that you’re having so much dress stress!  Have you taken your dress to a few places to get quotes for the alterations?  Maybe you can get a break on it from somewhere.  The money part is definitely stressful though, I understand that for sure.  Everything will work out and you will make a beautiful bride, even if the road is bumpy on the way!
