We ordered our Bill Levkoff bridesmaid dresses at the end of March. So it’s been 4 full months, and we were told they’d probably come in at the beginning of July. I’ve called several different times and then finally they called back saying the dresses were done and being shipped to the store we bought them at. No tracking number at that point and they’d let me know.
Now it’s been a week later and still don’t know the tracking number and haven’t been called to say they’ve come in.
I’m mostly aggravated because one of my bridesmaids is going to college and none of them have bought their shoes yet (because they were waiting to see what height they’d need). They all figured they’d have enough time before October to get alterations done and find shoes. But the college-bound one is leaving in three weeks now.
Sorry for the random vent. I’m annoyed because I feel like it’s my fault for choosing this place and going with these dresses, which are now inconveniencing my ladies.

I am in the EXACT SAME situation. They told us to order by a certain date in March to get them by mid to end of July. Well, now it’s August and as of yesterday we still have to wait “another week or 2.” Why did they give us a buy-by date if they can’t get them on time? My girls will need alterations!!! And by the time they get them we may only have a month (or less!) til the wedding!

@yellowlace: Glad to know I’m not alone. This place was a recommendation but you just never know. 🙁 I just feel bad now, although I’m trying to go with the attitude that “everything will be fine”. And I am trying not to be the bridezilla that is visibly annoyed and calling back all the time.
My wedding dress came in faster.

I’m in the opposite situation but I still feel your pain! I bought my wedding dress in the end of November and they told me it would be in by the end of June. Then they told me the end of July. It is now August 2nd and I have yet to hear anything.
We got the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses at the same shop in March and they were ready in June. Ugh!! I need my dress!!

@bells: True story. Their website says about three months as well. I submitted a complaint. I doubt it’ll get me anywhere but you never know.

Well don’t stress yet. You still have plenty of time, but KEEP CALLING. I got one of my dresses the day before the wedding. It was ordered 6.5 months earlier. They cancelled the order on that one dress for a reason no-one knows. Then we replaced it with a rush and it never came in.
We had to call the manufacturer and eventually got to a manager in the headquarters who was able to get it delivered to us overnighted just in time. Thankfully she didnt need any alterations.

I ran into problems with mine. They came in about 3 weeks before the wedding and they all had to be taken out. You still have time and shoes were easier than I had expected since they all picked payless shoes and those stores are everywhere!
