How long did your dress take to arrive?

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 :)
Haha well thanks. But it's something I keep saying I want to do. I lost that much last year and then have gained 30 pounds since august due to us going on vacation, moving in together, getting engaged and the fact that I had a 6:45am class M-F and lived 45 minutes away..... He knows I want to do it and is just giving me motivation.

I didn't try the dress on before I bought them. They were samples from a store who was no longer going to sell the designers. I've tried on around 200 dresses (literally) and have tried ALL kinds so I definitely know what looks good on me. My fear is that some dresses can't be altered that much because of the detail on them. I want to at least lose SOME weight before picking one. Worst case scenario I'll just have to buy one from another bride or online again, neither of which really bother me that much.

I ordered a Maggie Sottero at the beginning of February (8 months before the wedding) and was told that it would take approx 6 months and would be here by August. I got a phone call from the salon on June 4th to tell me that my dress had arrived! It was exactly 3 months from the date I ordered it. I think most salon's tell you to order earlier just in case there is something wrong with the order and there is still time to return it to the company and receive a new onehuh.gif I was in the process of losing weight as well (and still am!) and ordered my dress two dress sizes smaller! Turns out, that the dress fits and I'll actually have to get it taken in still!

I order my dress in April and was told it will be here the 2nd week in Aug. So now it is just the waiting game and once it gets here i will have to wait till March to wear it. =( The only thing I am hope to have done to the dress is a hem. It fit me like a glove when I tired it on, so im praying that it still will.lol

Megan is right, it could depend in the designer. My dress is a Casablanca and it took 5 months.

No kidding. I really want a Maggie (Lavina to be precise). I tried it on back in November when shopping with a friend. I ended up turning really red, got giggly and didn't want to take the dress off. It's the only dress I regret not being able to buy and still think about it. It was out of our price range though (well, I would have paid $1200 but you can only imagine the crying my fiance would do about dropping that much on a dress for one day). I've since found it on ebay for $650 in my size! A lady ordered it and then they called the wedding off. It's never been altered. I have no problems with this. But I have to sell my other dresses first.... So I may not need to necessarily order one but I wanted to know just in case.

My dress is Pronovias and I ordered it in February and they called me last week saying it just arrived so 4 months. (When I bought it they said 6 month's so it was earlier than expected).

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
