My wedding is next May 1 and I asked my bridesmaids to order their dresses by the end of October, because it can take up to 6 months for dresses to arrive.

I ordered my wedding dress back in March and it it scheduled to arrive at the end of September.

Average of 6-8 months ahead of time, though it can vary based on designer.

It will depend on the designer as well as the store you are ordering from. We ordered from perfectbridal.com and the dresses were supposed to take 12-16 weeks to ship. We ordered them in April for our late August wedding. They got here about 6 weeks ago which has given the girls plenty of time to get stuff done (although some have procrastinated immensely!!)  Even though they came in early that doesnt always happen!! I believe they only took about 12 weeks exactly to shiop which was perfect!

You want to make sure with where you are getting the dresses from?

The designer and style may effect the shipping time.

Our wedding is in November and we are ordering Dresses in March. (2011)
I want to make sure they have enough time to pay for it. They do have to put half for them to order it. Than they can make payments or pay it off when they pick it up.

Most designers are about 4-6 months but with dresses being discontinued and so many other issues, I would order it up to 8 months ahead if you find what you want.

The store told me 4 months for our Watters dresses, but it only took 3.  I think they tell you the worst possible scenario so you make sure to get them in time.

I was told about 3 months with David’s Bridal, but some dresses came within a week and some came within a month.
