'Tis the Season for Production Delays

As we enter December, it's fun to be swept up in the holiday festivities, but also hard not feel a sense of panic, i.e. the panic to buy things! For those who celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other holiday with gift-giving involved, the countdown to checking everyone off your list has begun. Shopping aside, it's the opportunity to spend quality time and reflect on the year with family and friends, which also makes it a perfect time to have a festive wedding!

But there's another major holiday on the other side of the world, arguably bigger than Christmas or New Year's. Many of our designer's factories are located in Asia, where they celebrate Chinese New Year in early February. It's one of the few times in the year where people can travel far and wide to see their families, and all businesses completely shut down for 2 weeks!

Which brings us to the reason for this blog entry. To the best of our ability, our site provides real-time estimates for production times and shipping deliveries, and we want to call to your attention that starting mid-December, production times for all Dessy Group bridesmaid dresses will be lengthened to account for the February break. Regular orders will ship in 11-12 weeks, and Rush orders will ship in 9-10 weeks. There will be limited availability for Super Rush by special request.

The delays will be taken into account with accurate date estimates in the product page delivery options. Landa Designs and Malis Henderson will also experience some delays, but because their standard turnaround times are generally shorter, changes have not taken into effect yet. We will keep you informed as best we can, and feel free to check our Shipping & Delivery page for updates or contact us directly with any questions or concerns.
