@Dawn1234:  You’ll have to ask the salon you intend to order it from that question.

A dress takes 6-8 months to come in, so you have time. Don’t feel like you have to rush if you don’t want to purchase now and feel like there is something else out there. Dress regret is the worst!

@Dawn1234:  It depends on where you get your dress/who is making it, but my dress is taking 4-6 months to be made. I ordered it at the beginning of February, it should be here in July, and we’re getting married in November. That will give enough time for any alterations too. You’ll know when you find THE DRESS. πŸ™‚ Have you looked online for particular styles that you like? Then you can take the photos in to the shops and show them what you like. That’s what I did. πŸ™‚

@Dawn1234:  You’ll find it. πŸ™‚ Just relax and have a little faith in yourself. If your not 100% about a dress, or something with it that can easily be altered, then I wouldn’t get it. You’ll have up having the worst dress regret. I found photos online of dresses that I thought would be the dress, but when I went to try them on I despised them. I have a two year engagement, figured I had plenty of time, and used a year of it to pin my favorite things on Pinterest. It really helped, and gave me a nice collection from dresses, to shoes, and any other wedding item. πŸ™‚ Also really helped me narrow down what I wanted.

More important than the shop you’re ordering from is the actual manufacturer. I’d call or email Maggie Sottero and find out how long it takes after ordering the April dress. Specific dressesd may take longer or shorter, and they also may give you a heads up if it could possibly be discontinued.


All that being said, 8 months out should be pretty safe.
