How Long Does It Take To Order A Wedding Dress?


Do you know how long it takes to order a wedding dress? The answer may surprise you. Most brides are surprised at the answer and find themselves unprepared.

It typically takes about 4 to 8 months just to manufacture the dress. You also want to account for shipping times and give about two months for alterations. Altogether, you’re looking at about 6 to 9 months just for your dress. But you’re not done there.

You also want to account for accessories, whether you’re ordering a veil, any sort of jewelry or shoes. Give some time for that, too. If you are getting a veil and you’re not buying a sample off the rack veil, same with jewelry, you need to give some time for that to come in as well, usually 1 to 3 months.

The trick is to order your dress early, 9 to 10 months, before your wedding so you give yourself plenty of time for the dress to come in. You want to account for any kind of shipping delays or any time it takes for the manufacturers to get any sort of beading or lace for your dress. And then while you’re waiting for your dress to come in, you’re giving yourself plenty of time to get all of those accessories that you need as well.

If you need something a little bit sooner than 9 to 10 months, you may want to consider going to a bridal salon and doing a sample sale where they’ll sell their discontinued styles off the rack. I hope this was a helpful wedding dress shopping to.

Plan ahead. Ordering your wedding dress with plenty of time to spare will save you time and stress.
