I’m pretty late when it comes to wedding-everything, but I wanted to get an idea on when I should order my dress. I’ve only tried on a couple so far (my front-runners are the Holly and the April), but I’m making more appointments for the next few weeks.
Here’s the thing: I have yet to start my wedding diet (and hope to lose about 20 lbs before the wedding). I prefer to to save money on alterations by waiting to order the dress (so it’s closer to the size I hope to be), but I don’t want to run the risk that my dress won’t come in time. I guess part of me also doesn’t want to rush into buying a dress this weekend because “I’m running out of time.” There’s also a couple of trunk shows in my area that are offering a Maggie discount in January. Would I be crazy if waited until then to order my dress?
Maggie brides, how long did it take (after you ordered your dress) for it to ship to the store? Please help! Thanks =)

She told me 5-6 months but it came in 4 months which was a nice surprise. I think if you order it in January it should be there by July but I know the timeline varied from store to store here.

I was given a 4-6 month estimate when I actually ordered mine, but some places had told me 6-8 months.

I was told 4 to 6 months. I ordered it at the beginning of September. They said it would be the end of December but it came in a few days ago. So actually it was around 3 months.

I was told it usually takes about 4-5 months, and I got mine at 4 months to the day.

My daughter was told her dress would take 5 months and it only took 4 months. She has Ambrosia.

Thanks bees! I’m going to try to order my dress before Christmas and pray it gets in as early as most of yours did! Hopefully the corset back will give me some extra cushion in case I need it =)

I ordered my dress the second week of August and I was told that it would be delivered in 6 months. That means, not until February! But it seems as though many of you laidies have gotten your dress sooner than the predicted date so I’m hoping I will get my dress soon too!
@Summer7911: Let us know which dress you end up choosing!

I ordered “Jenna” in mid-October and was told it would take about 4 months for my dress (I’m still waiting).

I ordered mine at the beginning of November after having dress regret and changing my mind. I was told that it would take about 6 months. Not wanting to take my chances, I paid a rush fee so that it will come by 5 months at the latest.

Mine will supposedly come in around Dec. 15th at the earliest, so I will let you know if it happens to come in soon 🙂
However, it could be around Valentine’s Day at the lastest… sooo we shall see!
