Jerry's Apparel sometimes take between 2 to 4 weeks to get shipped out. Most of the time it will ship within 48-72 hours, however in the instance a delay occurs due to a back order, we will be sending an email notifying you about approximate shipping time. If your order is in Awaiting Shipment Status for too long, this means the dress is being manufactured, you can verify this over the phone by calling us at 818-785-2002. We carry over 700 styles and sizes of dresses in stock at all times so chances that we will have your dress in stock are very good. If you have any questions feel free to call us at 818-785-2002 Mon-Fri 9am - 5pm Pacific Time. If we do not pick up, please create a support ticket and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
