It’s not too late, but get on it! Depending on the manufacturer, how many alterations you need, and whether or not you choose a ‘rush’ option, less than 6 months is definitely possible but starting to push it. If you’ve been having persistent second thoughts, I agree you should find a dress you love before it really is too late!

P.S. I ordered in mid-Feb. for a late July wedding, so that was just over 5 months for delivery and alterations. It was close, but worked out perfectly.

It isn’t too late at all. Just do it now, and get it over with you will be fine.

If you’re unsure, then go for it. I just bought my dress two weeks ago for my March 2011 wedding, so it’s definitely not too late. Just make sure you talk to your dress shop about how long the specific styles take to get manufactured and shipped (some I looked at would take 6+ months which wouldn’t work for me).


Good luck!

I don’t think it will be too late. Is it possible for you to go with a used or sample dress?

No, you should be fine. My dress is taking less than 4 months to come in

I ordered just before christmas for my July 9 wedding.  The store will tell you whether it can come in on time, or just not show you brands that are slower to ship.

Nope. I bought my original dress on Nov 19 last year for my May 31 wedding. I bought my second dress 6 weeks before the wedding (this I don’t recommend to anyone – way too much stress!). Just ask the store about delivery times and whether you would need to pay a rush fee, but I really really doubt that you would.
