I bought mine about 3 weeks before going o/s for our elopement. You should definitely start looking now if you want a boutique gown, in fact it’s probably too late but there are plenty of nice dresses off the rack. You should leave at least 4 weeks for alterations. If your cool with an off rack gown, no problemo 🙂

Depends what kind of dress you are looking for. You could even rent one at this point. Have you looked at littleborroweddress.com? It’s aimed at bridesmaids dresses, but they come in any color so you could get white or ivory. Different lengths and cuts, but from what I’ve seen they are all flowy silk material. Rent for $50 or buy for $150. Tough to beat that!

Oof.   It’s time to seriously start shopping.  My dress took 8 months to come in, so you may be putting yourself in a situation of having to pay a rush fee…

i would definitely start shopping soon! depending on the type of dress and where you buy it, it can take up to nine months for a dress to come in. my first dress shopping appointment was a year before my wedding.

Are you in Nigeria? I don’t know how things work there, but my dress will take (minimum) four months to come in, and then you need to leave time for alterations.
