It was delivered within 3 wks after ordering, and was truely an exquisite gown to view up close and to touch. Although it appears delicate to look at, there is nothing delicate about it. It is beautifully made and there is ample surplus material within the garment.
The flower at the waist was kind of chintzy though... looked like something they picked up from the walmart artificial flower aisle, but it's pinned on and easily removed/replaced.
I also ordered a dress for my six year old daughter who will be my flower-girl/ring-bearer/junior bridesmaid and that dress was also really fantastic.
Overall though, for the price, this dress is absolutely amazing. I'd recommend litb in a heartbeat.
