    I'm just curious as to what the deal is as far as dress ordering. I haven't started with even looking yet and I am just curious as to when I should start.
    I heard someone say that it can take up to 7months to order your dress. Is that true?

      I ordered mine 6 months in advance and the lady at the store told me that it was good i didnt wait any longer. That being said it was ready in 4 months.

          My wedding is in 9 mos and I ordered this week. They told me 6-7 mos at all 4 stores I looked plus 1-2 months for alterations, so....I ordered right away as that equals 7-9 mos total time.

            Some do take 6 month+, it totally depends on your designer. Most dresses can be rush ordered if needed, but you'll pay a premium. Personally, though, mine will be in just under 3 months...so like i said, it depends.

            dress shopping is fun - get out there and do it!

              I already ordered mine but I only went shopping because my mom was in town and she is never here and I wanted here there. My wedding is Nov 09, otherwise I probably would have waited till about 10 months.

                I ordered mine about 9 months before the wedding. It took 5 months before it came in. They said it would take between 4 and 6 months. I guess it depends where you go and who the designer is.

                      I ordered mine 10 months before so it should be here 4-5 months before the wedding. It totally depends on your dress. I boughtmine at the time that I did to take advantage of a promotion. I probably could have waited, but I caught a deal
