I’ve found mine, but I’m not ordering it until next week (I want to be as small as possible before I have to order it).

The lady at the dress shop isn’t exaggerating.  If you are ordering a dress, it takes 4-6 months for the dress to come in.  And then you need 4-6 weeks for alterations.  So, yes, you need to order your dress very soon.

If you aren’t ordering a dress and are buying it off the rack, then you don’t have to rush so much.  

Good luck!

Yes, I have mine but I bought it off the rack.  I agree with the other comments.  If you have your heart set on a particular designer find out how much time you need.  Some take as much as 9 months I’ve heard so now’s the time if you’re ordering.

I am so excited! I ordered mine tonight. It is supposed to be in by the end of Feb, so that gives me plenty of time for alterations. I was trying to get as thin as possible, but the dress can always be altered down to fit me. My dress store recommends up to 12 weeks for proper alterations.

I have mine! I found my dream dress at the shop but couldn’t commit because of the hefty pricetag. I came home and found the same dress on eBay brand-new for $300 less. And in my size too! So I snatched it up. I may need to get a few alterations but I think it’s perfect! It’s also corset-laced in the back so I’m not too worried about fit. 🙂

So many date twins for July 24 – exciting! I haven’t ordered mine yet, though I’ve had in mind since a week after my engagement date the one I want. I tried it on the first shop we went to and fell in love, but figured I should wait and look around some more to be sure. I really want to go back and look again and just order it. I know, it’s getting close; I figure no later than December 1st should be my deadline.

I think you can lose weight, and still have use the same wedding dress you bought before you lost wieght. They can usually take a dress in if it needs to be. I wouldn’t gain to much weight though, because it’s difficult to make a dress bigger.

I am July 16th and I ordered mine in September and they said it should be in late January-early February, then theres the time for alterations. they told me about 8 months before…but also said that around the holidays production slows down, some factories close, and they said a lot of people tend to get engaged over the holidays which slows production down too. So I would personally try to do it by the end of November. Good luck!!
