Why You Should Shop Early For Your Wedding Gown

Why you should shop early for your wedding gown

Have you started shopping for your wedding gown? When is your wedding date? If you answered no and your wedding is either 6, 12 or even 18 months away you should consider starting now. 

Wedding dress shopping will be as easy as you make it. We recommend finding your dress 12+ months prior to your wedding date.  If you give yourself enough time to get your dress you will be able to enjoy the process, look at all the options and you will not have to fear your dress not arriving on time. Shopping early will also prevent you from having to pay extra for your dress to be rushed.  If your timeline is faster, we can still help you!  We offer off-the-rack gowns as well as in-stock gowns from some of our designers. 

Consider this timeline when shopping for a special order wedding dress: 

When you purchase your wedding dress, you have to wait roughly 6-8 months for it to arrive at our store. After that you will have to do some alterations as every gown needs to be altered, which we recommend doing 8-12 weeks before your wedding day.  Alterations include fitting the gown to your body, your hem, your bustle and any custom work you want to do.   This good looking timeline was true back in the pre-covid days. Now dresses are taking a few more weeks to get to us.  If you are getting married a year from now you are also getting married at the same time as all the weddings that were pushed from this year due to COVID-19. This means that seamstress will have double the amount of gowns to alter which in effect will make the alteration time longer. 

Our goal is to give you the most stress free experience when you are shopping for your wedding gown but it’s up to you to decide when to start. Schedule an appointment with us and let’s find you the dress of your dreams.
