How long did it take you to get your dress ?
Posted 22 October 2008 - 06:23 PM
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 already have to have my engagement ring resized !!!! )

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.

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

I would go ahead and start looking. It is amazing HOW MANY dresses there are. It took me two months to find a dress.
