Well I don’t know who the designer of your dress is but most designers take 5-6 months, some more popular ones 6-8 months. So if you go by the standard 6 months for the dress to come in, and you want 2 months for alterations you want to order 8 months before the wedding. Hope that helps!

Order with plenty of time before the wedding. I would agree to the 8 months! I ordered a bridesmaids dress as my wedding dress, and that took a full solid 4 months to come in!! For a bridesmaid dress! So i can only imagine an actual “wedding” dress.
