How far in advanced did everyone buy their wedding gowns?
by blackpolkadot » Nov 11, 2008
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!
by OUpearlgirl » Nov 11, 2008
It''s suggested to buy at least 6 months in advance. Most lines take 3-4 months to come in.

Ditto. I bought mine 4 months in advance and had to pay rush charges.

I bought mine in August ''08 for my Sept. ''09 wedding. I ended up buying a sample, so no ordering needed.

Bought mine September 2008 for my June 2009 wedding.

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.

Ordered Sept 08 for July 09 wedding..it won''t be in until January and I cannot start alterations until April
by dcgator » Nov 12, 2008
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
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!
by SarahLovesJS » Nov 12, 2008
Too far. Bought in January 08 for June 09 wedding.

I believe I bought mine in July for my November wedding next week...but I bought the one in the store so I didn''t need to order it or anything....good times.

i ordered mine september 22nd and our wedding is june 14th
by musey » Nov 12, 2008
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.
by mimzy » Nov 12, 2008
i ordered mine in late January for my december wedding. i don''t think i got it until late august or early september (it took a long time). i won''t pick it up from my final fitting until 2 weeks before the wedding on the 20th.
by Livinthedream » Nov 12, 2008
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
by bee* » Nov 12, 2008
I got mine last week for my wedding in June.
by cakeny » Nov 12, 2008
I got my dress in August08 for my April 09 wedding. On another exciting note, we just decided on BM dresses last week too. whoo!
by modernsparkler » Nov 12, 2008
i bought mine pretty early- In March 08 for a May 2009 wedding! However it was out of town and I really wanted to do the shopping with my mom and MOH when I was home.
by Mediterranean » Nov 13, 2008
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).
by palomablancabride » Nov 13, 2008
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!
by mrsv » Nov 14, 2008
1 month I was a bit behind schedule.
by Rhea » Nov 15, 2008
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.
by sba771 » Nov 15, 2008
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.
by nani565 » Nov 15, 2008
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!
by pjean » Nov 15, 2008
Yay! I love the neckline on that dress. So pretty!
by Smurfysmiles » Nov 15, 2008
