Well, if you already paid for half, you don’t want to lose that money. Was there anything in the contract about when it would be ready? If they’ve already passed it, I would attempt to get your money back.

If you don’t care and you just want a dress, I would take a loss and get a new one. Sometimes should still be done about that other company jacking you around though.

Where did you order your dress from? Sounds a little sketchy.

Where did you purchase your dress? A company? or an individual person? If it’s a reputable dress company, there has to be someone in a higher management position that you can appeal to. 

I would have a back-up dress, just in case. And try to cancel my original order, and see about getting my 50% refunded. If you have a contract that states a delivery time, and they have not upheld their end of the contract, you should be able to get your money back.

Sounds like a bit of your problem is coming from the fact that you’re STILL dress shopping. When I bought mine, I stopped. Stopped looking at the dress boards here on WeddingBee, stopped Google searches, stopped etsy and ebay and theknot searches… maybe it is stressing you out even more because you’re second guessing yourself?

As for the fact it hasn’t arrived…that’s a whole other story! But maybe it will ease your mind a bit if you keep your mind on the dress you’ve already half-paid for.

I think almost 4 months is a little too long for alterations!

@peachacid:  Wow really? I would call them now and see whats going on. Alterations are usually 4-6 weeks so you are fine as of now. You have about 5 months until your wedding so dont panic yet… but find out whats going on for sure.

@peachacid:  Sorry you’re going through this.  I’m very Type A, so all of these delays would drive me crazy.  However, as long as this bridal salon is very reputable otherwise and has a good relationship with the manufacturer, things should turn out OK for you, even if the company has to do a rush order for you at no extra charge. However, if your dress does not arrive by the end of February, I may recommend a different course of action.

As for alterations, your wedding is in June, and even significant alterations take only about six weeks, so you should be OK.

@peachacid:  I am going through a similar thing with my dress.  brides get their dresses on time with no problems. I plan on bugging my dress shop every week. I am also trying to contact the manufacturer and bug them too. let us know how this turns out.
