I bought my dress over a year ahead.  Maybe too soon but I didn’t really have time to think about it.

Five months because that is how long it takes for the dress to be made.  I wish I had been able to wait and order it closer to the wedding.  I would have ordered something completely different 🙂

  • Wedding: July 2010

i bought a dress in september for a july wedding but i couldn’t stop second guessing.  i bought a new dress (THE dress) two weeks ago.  Had to have it rushed so I don’t recommend doing that just 4 months out!

I ordered mine in mid February. It actually limited my choices a bit since some of the designers would take too long to come in, but the one I chose comes in at the end of May which should give me a little over a month for alterations.

Our wedding is in September 2010 and I bought my dress in August 2009 – right after we got engaged. My dress arrived in January and it’s hangin out in my mom’s closet 🙂

  • Wedding: August 2010

I bought my dress in December for our August wedding. But actually when I bought it I didn’t know exactly when we were going to set the date for. So I bought it 9 months in advance but I didnt see it for a second time until February. I just had my first dress fitting last weekend!

To have a dress custom made you should contact the seamstress.  Sometimes there is a waiting list and sometimes it can be made right away.

  • Wedding: August 2010

I ordered mine last July, and getting married this August…I was really excited to go dress shopping…and just so happen to find a dress that I loved.  I started early also becuase I didn’t really know what I wanted, and considered having something custom made..which I figured would have to be decided earlier than later.

My wedding is next May and I ordered my dress a couple weeks ago. I found the dress I wanted on my first shopping trip out with my mom and friends.
