Most dresses come in within 16 weeks, which would allow you time for alterations. If that timeline makes you uncomfortable, you could consider sample sales where you can cash & carry the dress the same day. Or if you’re open to pre-owned dresses there are several sites where you could buy and probably get possession of the dress within a week or two.

I didn’t necessarily have to scramble but I ordered mine at the 7 month mark and everyone was telling me I would probably need to put a rush on it. I didn’t and I received my dress in less than a month. It was a Maggie Sottero.

Sample sales or a trunk show is a good idea. Just tell the consultant when you go to try on when your wedding is, they will let you know the best options.

@Missykate:  my friend got her dress in a small boutique – mid july of last year- her wedding was in November – it can be done!
