So you got engaged, you set your date and you made your crazy long list of things that you need to do. Venue, entertainment, celebrant and DRESS. These are the big 4. Get these booked in and you can breathe! People are always shocked at how long it can take for a dress to arrive. Anything from 4-8 months is fairly standard. And that’s once you’ve chosen your dress. Some brides take 6 months to find the one they actually want to wear! Once your dress arrives into the store you then need to have fittings with your seamstress to make it fit perfectly. That can take another 4-6 weeks.
So I would suggest the first thing to think about after you set your date is – what is my budget? Be realistic about what you want to spend on your dress, but also about what dresses cost. If you’re looking at Pinterest or Instagram bear in mind that those dresses are probably way more than you think they are. So set a realistic budget then come in to the store and let the experts guide you. You might be surprised at what you like! Most brides buy their wedding dress about 12 months before the big day.
We do have lots of options available if you don’t have that much time. You can purchase an off the rail dress or most designers have a rush service available for an added fee. Best thing to do is just give us a call or send us an email/message and we’ll go through all the options with you. The quickest we ever had was a bride who bought her dress on a Friday and got married in it the very next day! So anything can be achieved!!!!
