i’m sure you made the right decision.  i do not know what takes so long.  i got a variety of times from different bridal salons ranging from 3 months to 8 months.  the place where i ordered said 5 months.  like you, i ordered in march, so i am waiting for august.

why don’t you go back to the salon and see if you can try the dress on again while you wait for your dress to come in.

UK bride here as well. I have now waited 11 months (ordered July 7th 2012) for my dress so trust me, I feel your pain…. From my understanding though they order it so that it will only come in a few months before your wedding, in time for fittings, but just so that it won’t have to be stored in the shop for months.

If you think about it it’s actually a good thing (even though waiting is hell) as you minimise the risk of something happening to it. It is an expensive purchase after all and white fabric can yellow if it’s stored for a long time.

I went through s bit of dress regret as I had only terriblwe pics of me in the dress but I maid another appointment to try the sample on and it was pinned much better and the regret was gone. Can you perhaps do the same to ease your worried a bit?
