      I was wondering the same thing. All of the ladies that I work with are saying theirs took 2-4 months!

        Well, let's see...my wedding is before yours and I still HAVEN'T PICKED MY GOWN!!!! Every bridal salon I've been to has said 3-5 months. Sometimes they lie to the designer with the wedding date to make sure it arrives on time! Hopefully I will have my chosen within the next couple of weeks and have it ready to alter in November!

          THAT isn't too bad. Other people are telling me 6-9! That freaks me out! Our wedding is in 8 months and while I've got two dresses i'm trying to sell them. I bought them on ebay and think they're pretty but I just don't feel special and happy in them. My fiance told me that if I lost 25 pounds he would buy me ANY dress I want!! (I wanted to lose the weight anyway, here's great motivation!). So I was wondering how long I had to lose some pounds before I needed to order...

            Oh! Well, good luck! I tried on close to 200 and was just so darn confused! I feel like starting back over at square one without anybody else around so I know if its what I want or if it's what somebody else wants.

              They warned me that mine would take 3-4 months to arrive, but mine arrived within 30 days!! I had to wait a few weeks to pick it up, because I didn't have time to pick it up & take it for alterations!

                Every bride I've known got their dress in the 3-4 month range. It really depends on who you decide to go with and how pushy your bridal store is. Hmmm...your FI said he'd buy you any dress you want if you lost 25 lbs...I honestly don't know how I feel about that. I hope you don't decide to lose weight because of a dress and especially not because your FI is in a way bribing you. I've always struggled with my weight and it's finally come to me realizing that I want to be healthy and full of life and energy, especially when we decide to start a family. Good luck with your dress and your weight loss, just don't drive yourself nuts over how a dress would look if you were thinner. I suggest you find what you love and feel good in now...that way it can be ordered and if you lose, it will be altered. And if not, it will fit like it does now. Did you order your dresses new or used on Ebay? That can be a deciding factor. And did you try them on first before ordering? You'd be surprised what looks good, try something unexpected. So many brides on the forum think they know what they want and then try something totally different and fall in love with their gown. Let me know what happens :)

                    I ordered a Maggie Sottero and it took 3 months to come in, but they told me 3-4 months at the salon. She told me that you can put a rush on it, but it would have only come in 1 or 2 weeks earlier.

                      I ordered mine in December and it arrived in the beginning of March.. the bridal shop told me it could take 3-6 months.
