Maybe  it would make sense to purchase a dress off the rack and pay for quick alterations?  It might not be ideal, but perhaps David’s Bridal or some other boutique might be a good choice for you?  I would hate for you to rush order a dress and then find it doesn’t find you right and you be stuck not being able to get it altered.

@VeeeVeee:  Can she go to David’s Bridal (or another bridal shop) and buy off the rack and bring it with her on the plane?  Take your measurements in inches to send to her so she can figure out which size to buy.

@VeeeVeee:  You should be able to get DressilyMe to make you a dress in that timeframe (less sure about Jasmine’s as they are busy at the moment) – and the obvious bonus is they ship to most places so you would not necessarily need to have the dress in three weeks.

Other option is online places like JCrew, Ann Taylor – even getting a white evening dress from Nordsstroms or Bloomingdales online – where the dresses are off-the-rack and ready to go. But they won’t be big poofy bridal dresses.

The other obvious option is pre-owned – but that’s still cutting it short if you need a lot of alterations. If you are a standard size and evenly proportioned (i.e. your hips aren’t size 12 and your bust size 6) you will find this a better option.

@VeeeVeee:  You have a few options.

 

1)  Buy used!  These are dresses that already exist and people are desperate to sell them (trust me).  there are classifieds here as well as ebay and entire sites dedicated to used wedding dress re-sales.  Craigslist is another possibility depending on where you live.

2)  Buy premade and ready to ship.  EG, search “ready to ship wedding dress” on etsy.  These are usually in sample sizes so it will depend on what size you are.  They are new dresses that have already been made.  Target and JCrew also have stuff like this.

2)  Buy off the rack.  Again, you might need to be a sample size to do this, depending on what stores are by you.

@Happiestbridetobe:  i have already bought mine, although alterations are taking so long im getting a bit worried (13 days left and my dress still has pins all over the bodice :/  ). I would need a 10 with a zip up back too, my hips/waist are a 6/8 so I can wear a corset back in that size, otheriwse I would need a 10 :/
