I apologize if this was posted already but I didnt see anything that particularly answered my question. We plan on getting married in October of 2015. We haven’t done any official booking since I am waiting for the proposal. He has the ring and told me it will be within the next month or so. I obviously will be waiting until the official proposal however, how long do you usually wait to purchase your dress. I’ve been reading on here and it seems that alot of people have purchased their dresses like 11 months in advance. So, considering we are planning for October 2015, whens the best time to go?

I purchased mine last month and my wedding is the same month as yours. It can take a long time for wedding gowns to arrive, so I’d be ordering a dress ASAP.

jrae05: I honestly think that the later the better, if you’re havinga long engagement don’t buy early and end up having dress regret. Take your time to research different brands, decide on what you like and then find out how long their dresses take and shop according to that!

Thanks. I ‘ve been looking around alot online just to get me a specific idea of what I want and I am in love with 3 maggie Solterro dresses. Her dresses seem to have my heart at the moment. I will def be trying several on before I make a decision. I will start my dress shoppping in October or November then.

I just bought my dress and we are hoping to get married October 2015 as well. I purchased a lace gown and I was told that it would take at least 8 months to make…so I didn’t want to put it off.

jrae05: I was told 6-9 months for a wedding dress at my salon but other salons have said 12+ months. Mine came in within 3-4 months so really varies. I would contact your local salons and ask them. I would start looking now!

My wedding is june 2015, and I am going to start looking for a dress next week. I know if I start too early I will just end up second guessing myself.

I’m also October 2015 and I bought mine last month. It was the first thing I ordered after we booked our reception. I’ve heard way too many stories about dresses taking forever and unexplained delays and did not want that much stress.
