How long before my wedding do I need to purchase my bridal gown?

September 3, 2015

Prime wedding dress shopping time is 9 – 12 months prior to your wedding with the sweet spot being 9 months. Real talk, fam: due to international shipping delays and logistics issues, many designers have increased their turnaround time and began charging shipping surcharges. Giving yourself plenty of time eases any anxieties and makes sure we don’t have to incur rush fees to get the gown here faster (which is totally do-able, if needed! Rush fees vary by designer.) Gowns sold off-the-rack are limited to the sizes and colors here in store. Basically, girl, if you’re gonna order, SHOP EARLY!
