I have no idea when I should be going with my mom to look for her Mother of the Bride dress. We may try David’s Bridal first and I know they are pretty quick with dresses coming in, however, we may end up ordering at a more traditional bridal store – how far in advance should we be ordering!?

We weren’t very picky about that so my mom ended up getting hers at Macys (she said she didn’t want to look matronly). any way we ended buying it this summer when it was on sale and I am not gettin married until 2015. I personally would wait until about 8-10 months out but we needed the sale and it was the only one she liked

After I had tried on my dress [and ordered it], in august, my mom tried on some MOB dresses.
She only found one she likes and we are still looking.

@lynnielou33193: Yeah..I am not super picky either, but we don’t really have many stores like that here in Canada (We don’t have Macy’s etc) but we could check out a couple of those options!
We are about 9 months out from our wedding and was thinking about going with her in January so that should give us enough time hopefully!
@jenilynevette: So you aren’t feeling rushed to order one? Did they happen to say at the bridal salon how far in advance she should order??

My bridal salon warned that Mom dresses can sometimes take longer than Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Nevertheless, my mom wasn’t a fan of typical Mom dresses (seriously, they’re all either super sexy or super matronly…) , so we plan on going to Macy’s, etc. We have just started looking.

Depends on the designer that the bridal shop is ordering from.I would say buy the dress about 4-5 months in advance.Delivery might take about 3 months and leave a little extra time for alterations.

@Bri1o: Nope, don’t feel rushed, we have plenty of time.
And, there’s always JCP or macy’s if she can’t order one from the bridal shop.

My mom hasn’t started looking yet and probably won’t for a few more months. If worse comes to worse we’ll just go to the mall and find something.

@Bri1o: Ya she ordered hers online! It worked perfectly and it was only $70 total 🙂 good luck
