How stressful.  I would notify Milly immediately and contact the courier service, I'm assuming they shipped it via DHL to inform them of the incorrect address.  Hopefully they will be able correct the address before it goes back to sender.  Good luck.

Okay, my first thought was that sometimes two towns can share a zip code, or sometimes there are little subdivisions in a town that go by different names but really it's all part of one larger city. I own my own business and find that a lot of times, people will say they live in TOWN NAME, STATE, 12345 and really the official name of the city is REAL TOWN NAME, STATE 12345...but in either case the mail will still get delivered properly.


However, I looked up Greensboro and Wilmington and they are over 4 hours from one another, so um....I don't know what to say. YIKES. If it's DHL they SHOULD be able to intercept the package and re-reroute it. I've had this done with FedEx before when someone shipped me something to the wrong address. The package winds up back at the nearest FedEx facility, gets resorted and redirected. Takes a few extra days, but works out in the end. I'd probably call DHL directly as well, to get to the bottom of it and see if it can be rectified from your end without any language barriers, etc.


Good luck, I hope it works out as I stated above.

Contact DHL ASAP and contact MB as well! Go to the International DHL and contact them through there.

I got nervous too. I live in tallahassee, fl and they shipped my dress to Atlanta. Yeah...I was frantic. Turns out Atlanta had the closest DHL to my city. Weird, but it arrived safe and sound. You can sign up for text alerts to see where it is exactly, too.

Hopefully this is the same situation. I didn't figure it out until I called dhl though.

rlevangraafeiland - oh, how weird is that?  I probably would've been in the same panick mode and driven to where my dress was (even if I had to drive 5 hrs) :-)  Looking forward to seeing your dress!

Haha, that same thing happened to me! It was going to Fremont and I live in San Jose.  I was kind freaking out for a while until I realized it was because of the closest DHL location.  LOL.

Well the boning showed alot thru the material and the sweetheart neck line was a PLUNGING neckline.  But they actually remade the whole dress for me and I have already received it and it is at the seamstress now!  I have lost a good amount of weight since measuring for it, so now I have to get it altered.. oh well.. I love it though.  I will post pics when I get it back.
