Really the size dictates most of how long it takes to arrive I've learned. If the dress is a "normal" size, it arrives faster. If it's not in the size 2-8 window it might take longer. Mines was a 4 and it came within 4 weeks. But I know another bride who was a 14 and hers took like 3 months.
They told us it depends on the size and color. All my girls were given a 3-4 month estimate because my color isn't one of the most popular ones so they don't guarantee the dress is already made, but the more popular colors I guess they try to have some in every color, size and style in their warehouse at all times so delivery is faster. Not all took the full 3-4 months, some came in like 3 weeks, but a couple did take a long time.
They will tell you 3 months but all of my bridesmaids had their dresses in like 2 weeks. My rehearsal dinner dress (one of their bridesmaids dresses in ivory) for some reason took about a month an a half.
They say 4 months. My MOH’s actually took 4 months to come in. Other bridesmaids took 2 weeks. I think it depends on the store, the color, the style... definitely leave the full 4 months because my MOH’s dress DID take that long, but don’t be surprised if it comes faster
I think mine was 2-3 months when I got mine for my bridesmaids wedding when I was her bridesmaid
I'm in a wedding August 24th and I'm going to order it on May 4th I was just hoping I would have it buy then. The bride just picked out the dresses yesterday.. and I worry a lot that it might not be here in time. Thank you ladies for all your input!! (:
