Starshollow:  Eeek, that really is cutting it close. I don’t have any personal experience with ordering an AA dress but would base my reaction on how much I trusted the store I was going through.

Have you had a really good experience with them so far? Have they replied to all your questions etc. promptly, without changing their story/timeline? Have they got all positive reviews online?

If you feel good about the store, then I’m sure they’re on top of it and you’ll be fine. If you have any doubt though, I would be kind of tempted to contact AA myself and find out where things are at.

Good luck!!!

I’m hoping I don’t run into this same problem myself. I ordered my dress 12 months away from my wedding then found out it will take 11 months to get here. I’d stay on top of the bridal salon and get them to chase up AA especially if you can’t get a replacement off the rack. How long ago did you order your dress?

choualacreme:  yeah, I thought that too. I don’t know any other designer that would take so long. It seems like a legit timeline because I asked another bride in the Tiana thread and her dress is gonna take 10 months to get to her.

Starshollow:  have you checked the status on the brides.alfredangelo.com thing? I check pretty often and mine says it will be here about august 16th and i ordered in april. I wonder if it has something to do with the style complexity. Which one did you get?

TheBlackCrain:  My dress was an AA and it didn’t take close to 11 months to get in. I think it was here in like 3.

I wore an AA dress (the Belle 206 gown) and had a similar issue. My wedding was in April and my dress had a ship date of early February.  A few weeks went by after the ship date had passed and no call that my dress was in.  I called to check on the status and they said the dress was hung up in customs in China but assured me it would arrive.  I was extremely nervous, but it made it in time!  I think it was mid March before the dress came in (my wedding was on April 11).  They said they would accomodate rush alterations as well if need be, but I just needed a bustle and it only took 2 weeks, so that wasn’t a problem.  My bridesmaids also ordered their dresses through AA, and one of the dresses didn’t fit my Bridesmaid or Best Man properly, so they had to rush order her a bigger size 2 weeks before the wedding, and they were able to make it happen so she had the dress in time. Just wanted to share my experience, if it’s any consolation. I know it’s stressful but AA is usually pretty good!  Good luck

I had an AA dress for a wedding that was called off, and it only took like 4…I really hope yours comes in time! 3 weeks out is when you should be doing alterations, not still waiting on your dress! I’d be calling every single day!

My bridesmaids got AA dresses, and they were in MUCH quicker than originally promised. I was lucky enough to buy my wedding gown off the rack at another shop. Good luck, bee!!

I am having the same issue. i also have a 6 month engagement. My wedding is 6/27 and my dress still has not come in from AA. I ordered on 1/3 and was promised it would be in by 4/28. When that day came and went i called them and they stated the shipment date had been updated to 6/15 but they promised me they would rush the delivery and alterations. THe manager stated that she can have alterations done within 48 hrs. THe commuication is definitely lacking but theres not much i can do so im just crossing my fingers hoping everything turns out fine.
