Same with my dress. They said it will come in sometime in November. I am starting to get a little nervous that if there are alterations there won’t be enough time, especially because I am adding sleeves to it

I ordered my dress in March, got it in August. I’m working on alterations now. Plenty of time.

Hi Date and color twin!!

I ordered my dress last Jan. and it came in March. The dress is ready because I took bridal pictures before moving away in July.

I think that 6 weeks is plenty of time for alterations. Which dress did you get?

I ordered my dress in August, it came in a few weeks ago and I should be picking it up November 19th from having alterations done.  Then I have bridal portraits Dec. 3rd and then I’ll store it until the big day πŸ™‚

I just had my first fitting last Friday! Yippee! You girls getting your dresses in this month will for sure have enough time. Just have faith in your seamstress and don’t be afraid to ask if they can work on your dress first. Usually they work on dresses in order of date, not first-come-first-serve basis–good luck!!! πŸ™‚

Mine should be in mid November also. I can’t wait for it to come in though!

I ordered my dress in February and it came in around 9/1.  I had my first fitting 9/29, second one is 11/9 and third will be right before the wedding.

I bought a sample size and had in a month later (they had it cleaned for me).  It is with my dressmaker now getting hemmed!

My wedding is technically December 31, but I am going to post anyway πŸ™‚

I ordered my dress way early, so it has been in for a while.  I ordered a Casablanca, and paid the extra for the hollow to hem measurement. 

Alteration wise, it just needs bustled and to have the cap sleeves altered a little.  My alteration appointment is next Thursday.

i ordered my dress last march and it came in in july! my first fitting isn’t until december 10th and am doing my final fitting two weeks before, if necessary. my dress already fits really well and doesn’t need to be hemmed, so i’m not too worried about it. can’t wait!!

@aribari: Beautiful dress! Isn’t it funny how we are date twins, color twins, the same age, and we are both Maggie brides?

I have my dress and my first fitting is scheduled for December 5 and they said they will have it before Christmas. It is a corset back so really the only thing is hemming and bustling (sp?)
