I ordered this dress to be my wedding gown. I got married on December 27th and I ordered my dress on November 14th. I know that is not a lot of time. Believe me, I stressed until I got my dress on December 24th. When I got it, it fit like a glove. It was perfect. I could not be happier with the quality of the gown. If it hadn't been for customs interfering, I would not have had to worry as long.
