What is my order status?
We send out emails when orders are about to ship with a tracking number so you can look at exactly when the dress is arriving to you after its shipped. The amount of time each dress takes to get to you can vary, but before you pick each dress it should tell you exactly how long the processing time is for us to be able to get that dress in for you and ready to be shipped. When you are selecting shipping time, it does not include processing time for us to get in a dress if it is on back order or pre order. Do not expect to receive a back ordered dress in 5-7 business days, even if you select that shipping time frame at check out. That only includes shipping time. If you need a dress ASAP, please contact us to see if we can make that time frame work for you before you order.
What do you have in stock?
The dresses that we carry in our stores can vary from the dresses we carry online. The amount of each product is updated and can be seen when selecting a size and color.
