I am really in the dark on WHEN I need to order my dress. We are about 9 months away and I think I should be ordering it now but am not sure. I am having second thought about David's bridal so I may find a smaller place to go.

 

So my question is WHEN should I order my dress? Thanks!

well depends on where and what you buy. if you're buying somewhere like davids bridal or off the rack, you don't need as much time. if you're buying at a bridal salon where they have to order, i'd give yourself at least 6 mos. and don't forget to factor in a month or two for alterations.

I also bought mine at David's Bridal and I went home with it. I love my dress. What is your worry about David's?

 

If you have to have your dress ordered, I agree with Ann, they usually tell you 4 to 6 months, but it comes closer to the 6 month mark. And, alterations do take a while. So, I would say you should go within the next month or 2, if you are ordering one from a bridal salon, or online.

I just ordered mine last month and will be cutting it close, it will be in one month before my wedding, yikes! I would suggest not cutting it that close! The earlier the better I think, but I would give yourself at least 6 months.

i did the same thing - and luckily everything worked out just fine. but i would rather have had more time in case something did go wrong!

Thanks for the info! I will go with 6 months. I just had some concerns about the David's bridal in my area. The staff was nice but I keep reading reviews about how poor their alteration work is.
