    most shops will tell you 4-6 months. i almost bought a casablanca that, if you paid for rush delivery (not too much), would come in 3 months. or you can try for a sample and keep putting it off.

    but really, don’t let your weight stop you. you’ll look gorgeous no matter what.

    I just ordered my dress and it is not coming in until June. However, I’m pretty sure they didn’t put it into production immediately upon order and if I had a wedding date sooner, it would come in sooner.

    I would highly recommend NOT waiting until you lose weight- find something that flatters you now and if you happen to lose weight, it will be a bonus!

    If dress shopping isn’t your thing (since you’re afraid it will be “torture”), do some research before you try on dresses- for example, do you like lace or beading? Preference on fabrics? Try not to pick a style until you see how they look on you. Keep an open mind, surround yourself with positive shoppers and it will be fun!!

    Good luck!

    I looked for about 5 months.  I purchased my dress as a sample gown, so I did not need to wait for it to be ordered, made, and shipped.  It also does not need any alterations (asside from a possible hemming).

    If you are not too picky, you can buy a sample dress for a decent price.  If you are picky, I would jump on this task!

    Mine’s going to take 4 months. I’d get on the case asap because you need to take into account Xmas holiday break, Chinese New Year and the alterations
