So... I just learned **Pay the extra for UPS shipping**
When I ordered my dress, I did the DSL shipping. The order went to "shipping" status on April 5, I wasn't able to track anything until the 13th and the package was received on April 15th.
This time around I paid the little extra money for UPS. I got an email 2:30 AM Monday August 23 saying my bridesmaids dresses and veil had been shipped. I went to the site to get the tracking number, not really expecting to find anything on UPS, put in the information and had to have my FI confirm I wasn't losing my mind. It was scheduled to be delivered today. Checked this morning, and, indeed, my package is in town as of 6:50 am and will be delivered today.
I can't wait!
