I think it depends on the desginer. A place like David’s Bridal (i think) is more likely to carry dresses for longer and you can buy them on the website and the outlet once they are out of the store.

If the dress is by a higher end designer, I would call a boutique that carries the line and ask them about it.

I was told each dress is different and it really just depends on their popularity (aka are they selling)

It depends on the designer but in general I’d say you can probably order a spring 11 dress until at least until March/April 2012.

Typically I see collections get carried over 2-3 seasons, but as the others have said it depends on the designer, the dress, and probably how well the dress sold. Sometimes, if a dress seems to be selling too well, a designer may choose to discontinue it early. I was told this when I bought my wedding dress that it’s good I bought it early because the designer I bought from does this. 

Generally though, if you see it on the website, you should still be able to order the dress from an authorized dealer!

It really depends, my dress is Pronovias from an older collection (either 2007 or 2009, I’ve seen conflicting reports) and they are just discontinuing it this month. Like PP said, I think it depends on how it is selling.

It depends on each individual dress on how popular it is. There are some gowns that have been available at davids bridal for the past 8  years and then there are other styles that get discontinued after a year or two.

But even if a gown gets discontinued, there will always be something similar to it, or even nicer than it, or you might totally change your mind and fall in love with a different style.
