How long did it take you to get your dress ?

Recommended Posts

Hey girls,


I was wondering how long in average it took you to get your dress ? Here's my dilemma : I'm currently losing weight (lost 16 lbs already... 24 more to go) so I don't want to go out and start trying dresses before I actually get close to my target weight... that could be not before December.


I don't want something very elaborate (I will have a beach wedding so I want something rather simple), but I see that some of you have ordered their dresses already a while ago and it does not get there before January or so.


So, do you think it will still be OK if I start looking in December ? Or should I start now, knowing that I might have more options later on (as the body changes the types of dresses you can wear also changes), or that the dress I would try today would have to be seriously altered if I picked it up now... any advise welcome !

I think you still have some time to play with. My dress was ordered mid August and should be in this weekend, so that's only a little over two months. I know some take longer, but if your wedding isn't until May you could wait til the end of the year and see where you are with your weightloss goal.

I say hold out girl! Congrats on losing weight, what an accomplishment! You can almost always have a dress rushed and if you get a dress in December you should be fine by your date. I only say this cause you're working on 24 more pounds. It's definitely harder to lose the last pounds, but I would wait until you have about 10-15lbs left to lose, cause then you can easily have it altered. I think if you do it now and get it altered you're going to have a new body after 24 pounds and it may not be the right style of dress for your new fabulous body! Good luck!

I am in a similar situation but would advise you to try on dresses that have that "universal" appeal now to a least get the feel for the dress. Yes you will have a new body but I am one to err on the side of caution and order the dress by November and get a really good tailor. That way-picking a beautiful dress that can complement most shapes and sizes would alleviate the nightmare of having something that would look totally different. I too started weight loss for my baby weight and plan to be done with weight loss by December, however, I ordered my dress in my current size and will alter according to weight loss later, as long as I have my dress. Some dress stores not only take a while to get your dress in, but alterations can take a month or two as well. Good Luck. I loved Nicole Miller by the way and is who i went with--awesome, simple and elegant gowns for DW!!

Congrats on the weight loss!


I would go ahead and start shopping now, just to see what is out there and what you like.


My dress took 4 months to come in. I was trying to lose weight and just hadn't found "the one" and it was the end of January before I actually ordered one. I came in early May (2 weeks ahead of schedule) but I still had to pay extra for rush alterations.


Be prepared when you start shopping that wedding dresses typically run 2-3 sizes small. Don't let that discourage your or diminish all of the hard work you've done so far. I'm a 10-12 and my dress was a 16 that had to be cut down.

Congrats on loosing weight. I was in the same boat as you I wanted to loose weight before I ordered my dress since some dresses can only be altered so much. So I found the average dress took about 6 months to come in (mine was 4). So I went dress shoping keeping a open mind that I planned to loose some more weight. When I found my dress it did not fit but I was able to get a idea to know it the perfect dress for me. I put a deposit down on the dress and asked a little more time before they put in the order and they agreed. I did hit one road block by the time I was ready to order the dress they stopped cutting it so I ended up with the sample so just make sure you are able to get your dress ordered before that.

Since I'm on a tight wedding schedule (six months to the day after my engagement), I didn't have the luxury of ordering a dress, so I was trying on samples off the rack for purchase. I've lost 20 lbs in the last six months and was shocked to learn I fit in to a size 8 wedding dress, especially since everyone here has been saying that they usually run smaller than normal sizes (I didn't even know I was back down to single size digits - this goes to show how much I go dress shopping haha). I still would love to lose anywhere from another 10 - 20 lbs with my personal trainer over the next four months before my wedding, that's why I'm glad the dress I chose has a corset closure so that essentially, I'll be able to pull it in if necessary. I'm hoping that if I lose a lot of weight that the dress needs to be taken in significantly that the tailor will be able to do that. I'm a little nervous, but confident still.


Good luck!!

Thank you all for your answers.


I'm going to follow your advise... I guess that I'm going to wait two more weeks which put me on Nov 8 (4-5 additional lbs should be off) and start shopping then. I've already looked a lot over the internet so I have an idea of what I like... I selected some salons and so I also know where to start.


I am itching to go though... itching itching...


Maybe I should just go and that would already allow me to rule out those dresses that would take too much time to come in !


PS : no idea what my US size is anyway (I never really shopped here other than for shirts) so I won't be horrified, I have no benchmark wink.gif
