I started dress shopping in August and I put the order in at the end o Septeber.  I still haven’t received it yet.

It usually doesn’t take as long to come in as they say it will.  I would have something ordered no later than March.

It depends on the dress, the turnaround can be anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks just to get the dress in the store, then if you have alterations, that usually takes another 4-12 weeks depending on the amount. Since you said you have a fair amount of alterations that will need to get done, I would probably order the dress by February to give you a good cushion.

Mine it coming in 8-10 weeks, and then I have to take the hem up, so another 4 weeks or something like that. I’m on the short end, but I’d rather have my dress sitting and waiting than wait too long and not be able to get the one I want or have to scramble last minute.
