I bought my dress in the beginning of November and was told it wouldn’t be in until late April or early May. Before I eve started looking I was told to expect 6-8 months when ordering a dress, so I think it just takes this long. I’m sure it will be here in more than enough time for your wedding.

I ordered my dress mid-September 2011 and just picked it up last weekend! They can take a long time, especially if your dress has a lot of details. I wouldn’t be too worried, because they always give the “wear” date when they order!

I ordered my dress November 11th. . And its still not here. I called last week and was told it should be here before the month is over. (which is just a few more days.) But I think its normal. Its sucks!! But normal 🙂

It doesn’t matter when you place your order, most shops will schedule your gown to arrive a few weeks before your wedding regardless. This is why if I could go back and change anything, I totally would have lied about my wedding date! The gown is kind of a big deal, especially when you’re planning a big wedding!
