i’m 7/31 and i do have my dress.  i bought it in september.  i definitely think you still have some time but to play it safe, i’d aim to have it ordered by end of december.  7 months is still probably do-able.  while you wait to shop, take a look around and get an idea of what your wedding style is so that the shopping is more focused.

I do have mine – I found it the first time I went shopping! I think that as long as you have it by December or so, you should be fine. At least, that was my original plan…

I’m 7/31 (@marlie, we’re date twins!), and I ordered my dress in early July.  It’s supposed to arrive in December.  I agree with others who say that ordering by th end of December would probably be the best idea, just to play it safe.  I’m sure you could find something later than that if you really needed to though.

@sjones724 — I’m sure you will find something really truly beautiful.  I ended up with a dress that was somewhat different from what I was originally picturing, but I love it to death.  That’s the fun of trying on dresses — you might end up loving something that you never even would have considered otherwise!

I have my dress, I ended up ordering online since I couldn’t find something I liked. But I am doing weight watchers and I got a corset back so if I do lose weight my dress will be fine.

I have not order mine yet either. I was planning on looking some more this past month, but I’ve had a few family emergencies (and spent more time at hospitals then I’d care to admit).

I went to this great bridal shop reccommended by two fellow teachers at my school back in September. The woman that works there picked out a dress for me that looks great, but I thought I needed to keep looking and that I couldn’t buy the first dress I put on. All month I keep looking back at the pictures. I really like the dress, but part of me feels like I should go out and look again. The problem is I just don’t have a lot of time to shop and I’m not really a shopper to begin with.

I think as long as your order within the next month or so, you should have plenty of time for it to come in.

I have mine too. There were two bridal shops going out of business (this economy!!) and I lucked out at one.  Of course I bought off the rack and it does not need alterations…good thing since the store is defunct.  I think if you’re ordering you should go ahead and do it, but if you can find off the rack, you’ve still got quite a while.

Good luck in your search!!

I have a sample dress, but haven’t made the final dress yet since I’m trying to lose some weight first! I’ll probably start in January or so, hopefully there won’t be too many problems..

I have mine, I would not wait too long. I was really surprised mine JUST got in. I ordered July 1st and its in already, was not suppose to get in until Feb-march. I dont know what happened or why it came in early, not that I am complaing at all. But I do know some dresses if they need to be ordered can take over 6mos. Mine was scheduled orig to take 8!

As far as the wanting to loose some weight thing, oh heck ya, I would love to loose more too. I debated with that as well, but like someone else said…CORSET BACK, does wonders and gives room for change in your body weight!

i ordered mine a month ago and its not going to be in until april.  The dress takes 6 months to be made, then i need time for alterations. I think it depends on the designer, but you definitly want to give yourself time.

I’m 7/24 bride and I bought my dress in June. I received the dress about a month later so the only rush for us was that we saw the dress go up once in price so we didn’t want it to happen again. Also, my dress has a corset back which I initially didn’t like before trying it on but it leaves you some room for weight fluctuation!

Happy hunting!!
