Has anyone else ordered on of these recently, I was wondering how long it took for the dress to arrive. I tried to do some searching but only came up with posts that were two years old.
The bridal store said it would be 5-6 months before the wedding which puts it right around Christmas and my wedding isn’t until April, but I’m still nervous.
The dress I bought is the AD3396 I’m going to have the flower/beaded thingy removed and wear it as a simple strapless dress with a sash at the waist.
What do you think?

@tokoloshee: DRESS TWIN!!!!!!!!!
It took mine about 3-1/2 months to arrive (just came in last week and my wedding is in October). Not sure if it matters, but I ordered it in a petite length.
PS – Did you order the flower or beaded strap? I got the beaded, only b/c I am wearing flowers in my hair. You are the ONLY other person I’ve ever seen who ordered this dress!!!!!
We really need to exchange pics once we have them. 🙂

That’s awesome, I would love to see it on someone other than a model. I wasn’t allowed to take pictures at the store where I bought so I’ll have to wait until it arrives.
I actually don’t know which strap the store ordered it with, I’m going to have it removed, I’m not a big fan of beading or fabric flowers. I didn’t know that it could come in a petite length, how tall are you if you don’t mind me asking?

I’m 5’1″. Pretty short! The petite length is 3″ shorter overall (no charge for this). I’ll be in bare feet on the beach, then heels at the reception, so the hem length is going to be a tough one to figure out.
I was initially going to chop the train, b/c I hate bustles on me, but I have now decided to keep it and do a wrist loop. I’ll have it set up for a “just in case” bustle in the event I get tired of wagging it around Cabo.
I’ll send you pics at my first fitting. She called to schedule it, but i want to lose a few more pounds first. 🙂

I’m down three pounds! But, it’s just a start.
I was between sizes on the size chart and so I ordered the size smaller, so I definitely need to loose a couple. It does have the corset back which is forgiving.

Hi ladies, I’ve just joined this site and recently bought this dress for my wedding next year. I hope you both had great days and are enjoying being married. I’d love to hear your opinions on how the dress felt on the day and see some pictures of real people in it if you’d like to share!
I’m getting concerned about what to do at the Reception. Did either of you have a bustle put in?
