@Flanders:  most bridal shops will tell you to plan on an eight month wait, just to be safe. However, it does not always take this long. I ordered my Morilee at the end of November, and it had arrived by the middle of January. Each dress and shop is different. I have friends whose dress really did take eight months to show up. So yes, I would say the guidelines your shop gave you are standard.

@Flanders:  That would drive me crazy! I was told 3 months for my dress. I ordered it on Feb 10th and I am being told it will be in by April 29th.

I ordered on 4/9/13, and my confirmation e-mail said that my “order is scheduled to arrive” to me on 7/12/13.  But, the dress is an Allure, and they do keep stock on-hand (not at the bridal shop, but at an Allure warehouse) and the consultant told me that they had my size and color available – which I’m going to assume means that it will ship immediately. 

The information you received from the shop isn’t out of the ordinary.  Some designers keep stock on-hand and some don’t.  I think starting a list of designers would make an excellent sticky!

i ordered through Allure, and i live on the east coast. apparently they are made in and come from china. because i ordered really early (sept/2012 for an oct/2013 wedding) they didnt start production on mine right away, and waited a few months. i ordered mine 9/8/12, and it’s supposed to be here by 4/30/13. So, a total of almost 8 months.

I ordered mine online so it seems that that makes for a much different wait. It took me 4 weeks from the time I ordered it until the day I received it.

I ordered mine in September. Still haven’t heard anything about it coming in. It’s a Casablanca.
