    I bought mine in September for my May wedding. We thought it would take 6 months to come in, but I ended up buying the sample because it didn''t need any alterations!

    It''s suggested to buy at least 6 months in advance. Most lines take 3-4 months to come in.

    Bought late August 2008 for late July 2009 wedding. Mine was off the rack so I didn't have to worry about "production and shipping" times. There's that possibility...

    ETA: I worked for a designer that took 6 months to come in and ALWAYS needed alterations. If you order, I would suggest AT LEAST 6 months, you never know what could happen.

    Ditto on that. I bought mine in October for a June wedding, b/c I was thinking 6-8 months for a dress to be made, altered etc, but ended up buying the sample too [​IMG]

    I would recommend shopping at least 6 months out though b/c if its a summer wedding, its a busy time for the dress makers too!

    10 months.

    It came in 4.5 months, and alterations took 2 weeks. So I could've waited until 5 months out, in theory--but would've been cutting it close.

    I bought mine in Aug for a May 09 wedding. I love my dress and knew it was ''the one'' but I also took into consideration that they told me it would take 8-12 weeks maybe more. It arrived in 3 weeks!!! Good thing it''s being held at my parents or I''d prob be wearing it! haha

    Purchased: July 2008

    Wedding: May 2009

    Status: Not in yet, should be here in December.

    apparently, I''m going to need all 5 months for alterations. It''s a Reem Acra with a heavily beaded detail on the waist, and a hand-draped skirt, so to be taken in, everything needs to be disassembled and put back together the way it was made (by hand).

    I ordered the end of June (got engaged mid-May) for December 20 wedding. Still waiting (still patiently) for it to arrive. Should have shipped Tuesday- I am hopeful that it did!

    About a year in advance. I wanted to give myself plenty of time to order something but ended up getting a dress off the rack.

    I bought mine July ''08 for a January ''11 wedding, but only because I then left the country and won''t be back until sept 2010 which wouldn''t be enough time otherwise. While they do have bridal shops here in Frankfurt, Germany- when I saw them I was glad my dress is safely in NY. Not that the dresses here are not lovely- just not my style.[​IMG]

    So i was going to order my dress and have it made, and I wanted ample time so I decided to go looking for my wedding gown for my November 09 wedding and this bridal boutique was having a sale! 50% off sample dresses! and I found one that I loved and so I bought it!!! I also bought a matching viel and a petticoat! So i wanted to share my dress with everyone!
