      No way! That's way too long. The most I've ever heard designers taking is 6-8 months.. what does the dress shop say? I ordered a sample dress so I only waited a week or so but 9 months is crazy!

        oh yikes, thats what i thought.

        i called numerous times and every time they say "it should be in next week, we will call u and schedule fitting when its here..." they nev call me so i wind up calling them and hear the same thing. today- she said "let me take your # and i will call u back.." so now im thinking something is wrong!

        its strange b/c this shop is normally wonderful! at least they were when my sister got her dress there. i would have recommended them to everyone.

          Wow that is way long Jac. Hopefully they get back to you with some kind of explanation. You dont need to start fittings until about 2 months out so you still have time. But your dress should be in by now.

            Jacqueline, I ordered in the beginning of February and mine just came in the end of last week. Does your dress have a lot of beading or lace? Mine did not but being custom they said that is the normal time frame. Hope that helps.

            jac, sometimes it depends on the designer. like mine had a normal wait time of 12-16 weeks, but my shop had another bride who bought a gown by the same designer and was having it rush shipped, so the shop was able to add my gown to the rush order at no extra charge to me. my dress came in 9 weeks because of that.

            it sounds weird to me though that your dress shop is being shady about taking your number & calling you back.... do you have a confirmation from them that your dress WAS actually ordered when you ordered it? like my dress shop gave me a copy of the fax confirmation from the designer that my order was received.

              Wow, I haven't ordered my dress yet, so not sure the normal time frame but that sounds long!!!

              Good thing you ordered early!

                Wow, that is a long time. I hope they get back to you and tell you what's going on. The good thing is that your wedding is still far enough away that its probably still ok.

                  I'm going to call them in an hour if they dont call me back. I have been nice up to this point, so I gotta start being more stern.

                  The top has a lot of beading, the bottom is tulle so not TOO much.

                  Its casablanca, so i dunno if they take longer, ? yeah they are alil weird. its upsetting though because i really liked that shop, thats why i went there. when id call before, they would pull my info right up and tell me, no its not in, so im just wondering why she asked me for my # after i asked her today. kwim, like she saw in my file something was up, ??

                  the funny this is my original wedding date WAS going to be in sept, THIS sept, like it would have passed already. so if that were the case i would have been screwed!


                  ill just remain calm and if i dont hear back ill call them in an hour.

                    Not to freak you out more than you are, but my FSIL just had HUGE trouble with getting her dress. The boutique kept saying next week, next week (sound familiar?) and it ended up that the shop was going out of business so she didn't get a dress at all!!! She was left two weeks before her wedding to go find a dress!! Luckily they did give her her money back! And the dress she found to replace it was absolutely stunning!! Just thought that you should know that.
                    Good Luck...I'm sure everything will work out!!
