I have decided on the Maggie Sottero dress Kendra. I am placing the order tomorrow. The estimated completion date is MAY 6 and delivery date MAY 16. My wedding date is JUNE 22!! Will I have enough time to have the dress hemmed, bustled and possibly taken in (hoping I can drop a dress size)! The train is big so the bustle could be complicated. Any and all thoughts are appreciated.
If the time line is too short I may be forced to “settle on a very simmilar dress by the same designer, Micha, that is a floor sample, but it isn’t the one I love.

You’ll have about a month for alterations, so that should be okay. I would check with the store though (assuming they have a seamstress on staff) to ask for their thoughts.

@lizmyk: Did you talk to the store/seamstress? My dress won’t be here until December 22 and my wedding is January 13th. I hve been in there on three different occasions for various reasons but always end up chacking if I will have enough time and each time they reassure me that that is PLENTY of time. It’s scary, though, just leaving your fate in someone else’s hands it seems. If they sold it to you knowing your date then you should feel a little less worried because they know what they are doing.
