When should I worry?

My wedding is on the 22nd July (about 3 weeks away!!) and my dress has not yet arrived in the shop. I ordered it in February but was told that it should be in at the beginning of June. It's now nearly the beginning of July!

I have phoned the shop again and they say don't worry it will be here! Am I stressing over nothing? What do I do if it doesn't arrive?

    erm, i bought my dress off the internet so have had it for while now but i would be really starting to panic that it's not here yet - esp when they said it'll be here early june! if i was u i would phone them again and ask for a specific date that it wll be here. erm, nt much help sorry. hope u get it sorted.

    I would go in and see them in person and request that they ring their supplier there and then to confirm the delivery date! Good luck :\)

    hi had same problem not so tight a date but the shop i orderd from also took very long! only heard today that it is here - 5 weeks to go!!! I would go over there and demand a delivery date! i did that and it turned up 2 days later. apparantly some shops leave it till late for insurance reasons. as they can not hold many expensive dresses at once! good luck but be stern with them!

    worry now.

    I agree - go in in person and make them sort it out while you watch. or if you can't do that straight away, ring them four or five times a day. be nice at first - it may not be their fault - but pester them - they'll want to get it sorted just to get rid of you!

    you'll need time to do the alterations, and any less than a few weeks is not a good move (though they'll have to do them).

    another thing to point out to them is that if they gave you a delivery date, they are now in a potential breach of contract situation, meaning you could sue themfor not only a refund but emotional distress and all that.

    should get their backsides in gear!
  • Thanks for your replies. The shop were really nice when i ordered and have been so far - they keep telling me not to worry but I think i'm the only person at the wedding that hasn't got a new outfit yet. I know it's 3 weeks still but I will start to badger more next week if i've still not heard.image
