Are you a 2022 bride and looking for your dress? Then please take the time to read this post carefully or flip through the pics above as there is very important information on the current delivery times:
What we are experiencing with deliveries and orders every day, has now found it’s way to the major media channels when the BBC recently reported on their news about delays on wedding dresses, fabrics, accessories etc. Several news have been reporting about the supply chain and HGV/cargo crisis as well and there are still lockdowns in badly affected areas worldwide which lead to factory closures
Delivery times are now up to 2 months longer than usual, which means it can take up to 7 months for a dress to come in!
In addition, you have to allow for 2 to 3 months for your alterations, especially if special fabric is needed to make changes on a dress.
Before you find “The One” and actually order your dress, you might of course want to have a good look around and visit all your favourite bridal shops. So please allow another 4 to 6 weeks for your dress shopping!
That’s why we recommend to start dress shopping at least 10 to 12 months before your wedding and as you can see, that could be a problem for your 2022 wedding.
Of course we are always happy to sell dresses off the rail or try to arrange a rush delivery for you, but that might not always be possible and we don’t want for you to go for a 2nd choice dress!
We guarantee, this is certainly not to put any false pressure on you by publishing this. But it is something we have to talk about as we already had several brides in the last few weeks who were under massive time pressure because they were not aware of the current situation. These longer delivery times are confirmed by our designers and suppliers and even we are still waiting for some of our stock dresses that should have been delivered weeks ago.
The last thing we want for you (and for us ) is to be stressed and have sleepless nights because a dress is not coming in only weeks before the wedding So please be aware of this current timeline and get your appointments booked in with your bridal shops so that we all can enjoy and celebrate this experiencing the way it should be done, without pressure, stress and disappointment!
And if you find The One… Say Yes To The Dress
