I live in New Zealand and I am considering of going to the U.S. in December to pick my dress up hopefully.
I have looked at the store locator in the US and there were many shops which put me to ease..
I am interested in getting the Anita (sottero & midgley). Do I order the dress from that particular shop? What about sizes? I can try it on in New Zealand and get my full measurements measured..Do I get it altered after I buy the dress or do they custom make it to my size? Time is running out and I really want to know I can buy the dress. I want a genuine Maggie dress!! WHAT IS THE QUICKEST WAY FOR ME TO PURCHASE THIS DRESS

I would contact a salon that carries the dress line and ask them what the delivery time is right now. I think wait times vary a bit from one company to another.

The only way to find that out is to go to the place where you want to purchase it from and they can tell you..

If you order it to your measurements, I’d venture to say you may not have it in time. One of my daughters had a Maggie, and it came in 6 months, as they predicted.
If you can find a dress similar in cut and style to try on in NZ, I’d do that first, since you may not even like it on you. You can always have your measurements taken professionally and see if the salon has the size in stock. You might get lucky!

The sample or pre-owned sites route might be best if the salons can’t deliver by December.
The Pre-owned sites (I’m sure there are more, but these are the ones I hear about the most):
Pre-owned Wedding Dresses
The sample dress websites:
Vows (online and b&m)
Your Dream Dress
Le Dress Boutique (online and b&m)
Encore Bridal (online and b&m)
Fabulous Frocks of Charleston (online and b&m)
White Chicago (closing soon!)
Church Street Bridal (online and b&m)

I ordered my S&M in August and got it by December. But it all depends on the salon, give them a call and ask. Good luck!

It took 5 months for my Maggie to come in but I think it depends on which dress you choose. I believe they have some of their most popular dresses in stock and ready to ship. It still comes from China so it takes a few weeks.

Would they ship to new zealand?

@azafata: Did you get the dress – Anita by Settero Midgley? I’d love to see it on a real bride.
