It really depends on the resources where you live. Most people start alterations 4-6 weeks prewedding in just there are any hiccups or other issues. 

You can start looking now. The more time the better in case it has to be made to order. I recieved mine in a week, but it was a sample. Others take a few months. You can call salons you intend to go to and ask what the average wait time is. It doesn’t hurt to start looking, some purchase the first dress but other people take much longer to find their’s.

Personally, I am partial to the Mori Lee Voage line. The dresses are very light, comfortable, beautiful and are a decent price. I’m sure others will have other suggestions and your salons may have other brands.

It just depends on the designer with how long it should take. I ordered my dress in January and it came the end of August so it took awhile. I started alterations in March for my May wedding, but they only had to hem it, nothing crazy. My dress was a mermaid, but they entire too was mesh and the skirt was tulle so I was never got, even though we got married on a beach in Hawaii. My advice would be not to be too close minded and only look for something “beachy” and to just keep an open mind! Also, check out grace loves lace!

I am getting married in Vegas July 7th and wanted something bridal but still light, I went with a mori lee bridesmaids dress in ivory and it looks like a wedding dress but is so light and comfortable! I suggest anything by mori-lee voyage or their bridemaids collectio! (you can check the threads i’ve started if you want to see my gown too)

Alice Temperley Bridal would be my pick for beach appropriate wedding gowns.

+1 to Grace Loves Lace, some of her line has the most beachy vibe I’ve seen on a wedding dress. I think the Hollie is really pretty.

I’m also having a destination wedding on the beach, and an Anna Campbell gown was one of my top contenders!  They are so surprisingly lightweight even with the intricate beading.

Clairetoris:  also check out Ti Adora by Alvina Valenta (cheaper boho/casual range).

They have a couple with leg slits eg these ones:

Also, the Blush by Hayley Paige line – cheaper HP line with more flowy dresses including this one:
