@iheartcake:  I got mine end of november, so a little over three months out. I just oicked it ulast weekend. I had bought one in july and ended up getting a different one because I didnt like my original so I say take your time!!! Davids bridl has a really fast turn around and you can always buy a floor sample somewhere else so BREATHE!

My wedding is before yours and I don’t have a dress either. But I am having it made with a local seamstress and she is starting in January :/

I wasn’t in the same position, but I wish I HAD waited until about 4 months out! I lost over 20lbs after I bought my dress (9 months early), and it made alterations a nightmare. You have time, believe it or not, to get a bit more comfortable with where you want to be weight wise and keep searching before you commit to anything! I would definitely be looking around, but I wouldn’t stress. (: You still have a comfortable 2-3 months before you REALLY need think about having your order in.

I ordered mine 5 months out, and there was no issue.  I’m actaully glad I did.  The dress I ended up with was newer to the store so had I gone earlier I would have missed it.  Plus my ideas of what I want have changed as my wedding plans evolved.

Mine is in 7 and I haven’t even been fitted by my seamstress. 😛

@iheartcake:  You have plenty of time! Don’t stress yourself out. Make sure to ask about ordering times with the salons, but you’ve probably got a few more months before hitting the absolute deadlines for a new, ordered dress. You can also opt to get the dress tailored by a seamstress rather than within the salon. That might give you more flexibilty with the timeline. 

In a pinch, there is also the option of off the rack. I had to buy a second dress two months before my wedding, and I found several shops that carried even that season’s dresses on hand. I’m not saying you should use that as your primary plan, but it’s there as a solid plan B.

I just went through this too. I only got engaged a few weeks ago, but we are planning a May wedding, so I knew I had to get a move on with finding a dress. After looking at all the wedding timelines and guides for when to buy your dress, I thought I was totally behind schedule and I would only be able to buy a sample!!

And while there were a couple dresses I looked at that would have been cutting it close, 95% of them were fine. The dress I ended up buying is going to be here in mid-March, so I’ll still have over 2 months for alterations. It feels scary, but you definitely still have time!

You have time.Where I’m from most shops take 6-9 months to get your gown in once you order it but I’m sure there are places that ship in less time.If you are a sample size (8,10,12,14)…you could buy a sample last minute.You could also get your dress made by a local seamstress.Hope you find ur dream dress!I’ve seen at least two people come in to the shop I work in and need a dress a week before their wedding!Luckily we could find them discontinued sample dresses
