Hi! I’m recently engaged and considering a June elopement (based primarily on when my fiance can get time off from work and having time for a party when we return). Question for those who have already dressed shopped-would it be possible to get a dress in such a small window of time? I likely will not be able to shop until 3/8 at the earliest. Date for the wedding in June is TBD.

You might have to buy a sample or off the rack. I’m not sure if a month is enough time to order a dress…good luck 🙂

@jj0313: Start watching for dates for trunk shows and sample sales. You can generally buy off the rack at those. I highly doubt you’d be able to place an order for a dress with only 3 months out. And if you need alternations at all, that’d be another issue. But I could be wrong so try calling a few local boutiques and see what they say. My best recommendation though would be to look for a sample or even a slightly used dress from http://www.preownedweddingdresses.com 🙂
ETA: My dress is scheduled to ship 4 months after I ordered it in January.
