Congrats you lucky girl! That is amazing you found the exact one in your exact size!! Go buy a lottery ticket, you are obviously on a lucky streak!
For the TTD, I am dealling with Babyonline at the moment and am almost 6 weeks in since ordering and we are not even at final pictures yet before shipping.
However from reading all the posts on here it seems I'm just having a bad time and overall they are better than this. Give yourself some buffer time, I think 3 months is more than enough including shipping time (in my opinion). If you don't find anything on October 22nd, then make sure you have an online backup plan and order straight away (have your measurements taken before hand) and you might have the dress by Christmas!! Good luck!

It was off the rack and fit me like a glove. Lucky, huh?
BUT, since I spent so little I can now get a nice TTD dress. There's a "dress dash" coming to town where all the dresses are $150 so I was thinking of looking there first, but that's not until October 22nd. My wedding is the last week of February. Do you think that, assuming I don't find a dress at the Dash, I can order a TTD dress from a knock-off site and get it in time? I've been reading that dresses are sometimes finished in days, sometimes in weeks, and just wanted to see what the average is about.
