David's Bridal ship estimations

Hey everyone. My girls are starting to get their dresses. I picked Horizon from David's Bridal and chiffon fabric, and they get to pick their dress. My first two girls already ordered, and one dress is saying it won't come until 5 days before the wedding. Luckily, she won't need alts. The sample fit her perfectly. I've seen some feedback on David's bridal estimated time lines that they're excessive and over-estimated. I'd like to hear from people who got BM dresses at DB. We're the ship times accurate or did they really come a lot earlier than estimated?

    I got horizon dresses from DB. They came a lot quicker!!! The girls got theirs in less than 2 weeks. I got mine super early though and they are probably super busy now with wedding season coming up but I think they will arrive a lot faster.

    It depends. My wedding dress came in within 3 weeks when they said it would be at least 6-8. I'm a BM in my cousin's wedding this summer and they said our dresses would take 4 months to come in. I didn't believe them because nothing has ever taken as long as they said, but it actually did take the entire 4 months. I would count on what they tell you just in case, but usually it's sooner.

    My girls ordered Vera wang dresses from DB in horizon. I found that shipping estimates were all over the place but were pretty accurate. One of my bridesmaids ordered in February and was told the dress would get in 2 days before my wedding. She ended up getting the dress 5 days before the wedding, so it ended up being accurate.

    My estimate was 4-6 weeks for my wedding dress and it came in 1 week.

    It sounds like more often than not it's way earlier, but it still makes me nervous because it might not.

    I think it depends on the time of year, the style, and the color. If it's a slower time of year and you pick a color and style that isn't in too high of demand you may get it sooner.

    I've gotten two bridesmaid dresses from DB and my wedding dress from there and both were ready to be picked up within two weeks.

    My BM's ordered theirs in late November and no one has their dress yet. They were quoted 8-10 weeks I believe.

    Heads up as well: just because the sample fit doesn't mean the dress that is ordered will. Samples stretch out because so many people try them on

    I was a bridesmaid for a wedding in October. We went dress shopping last March. They told us the dresses would be in mid August. I picked it up in the beginning of July.
