Less than 8 months away...and still no dress!!!

Recommended Posts

Should I be freaking out at this point? I haven't even tried any on! I wanted to go with my mom, but every time we schedule a date and time, it never goes through! My married friends have said that it can take up to 6 months for a dress to arrive...is this true? That sounds like such a long time!! I can't imagine it taking more than 4 months or so...how long did it take for you guys? I need to feel better, help! I'm so stressed out...between work and my FI and I just bought a house so we've been spending our time ripping out carpet and painting that we've pushed the wedding planning aside...i need a few days away at the beach! haha.

I think I'd be feeling the pressure if I were in your shoes. What if you went to a few bridal salons on your own to get a sense of what style it is that you look best in and then have your mother come along to show her a narrowed down selection? Depending on your dress it could take longer than 6 months or it could take less time. My dress took just over 5 months to come in leaving me with 3.5 months for alterations (or time to find an off-the-rack dress if I wasn't happy...but I am).

I agree with Michelle. I think you should go soon as well. I ordered my dress in March and they told me it won't be here until September. Even if you think you know what style you want - they look very different on than they do in the magazines. You need to try them on to see how they look. Gook Luck!

is there a dress shop near the shore wink.gif that would knock out 2 problems :)

 

seriously tho, i wouldnt stress about it, just get movin! even tho you want your mom to be there, why dont you just go and try some on alone, without anyone hovering and criticizing. then when you find a few you love, you can make her come back with you and it will cut down on the time she needs to be available.

I ordered a Maggie Sottero dress in January and it just came in yesterday. It took about 4 months to come in, but I still have to alter it, so I would get a dress asap girlie!!

Ordered mine in December and it came in the last week of April. Really depends on which designer you order from. A good friend of mine found a perfect fit and bought it straight off the rack for a great price (1/2 the original cost) so there are ways of getting one fast as well.

Good luck!!!

I was only engaged for 8 1/2 months, so I wouldn't freak out too much. Just find a date that works well with your mom and hop on it! :)

And my first dress took four months to arrive... but then I hated it. So I ended up ordering a brand new dress the very last week in January for my April wedding!! Now, i completely DO NOT recommend doing that (I had to pay rush alteration fees... $$$), but it just proves that anything can be done.

Definitely don't stress out. If you have to go by yourself (in my opinion better anyway cause you can fully decide and not have opinions of others, especially when they don't like a dress you love!) Most salons can rush it for you it would just cost a little bit more. I think the average weight for a dress to come in is 3-4 months.

 

You never know you might find one off the rack!

I agree with the majority of the ladies... while I wouldn't panic yet - I would get moving soon on this. My dress took 3 months to come in ... but I have heard of dresses taking 6 months or more. And yes, bridal salons can rush it but usually you will incur extra costs.

 

Go by yourself if no one is available; get an idea of what you like ... then bring back Mom for the narrowing down and final decision.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
