Need advise on shopping for my gown!

Recommended Posts

Yeah I think I like the idea of going now to try on lots of dresses to get an idea, and then waiting for my mom to come down and help me make the final decision. I just wasn't too sure how long most dresses took to actually come in after they are ordered. One of my friends said it took her dress like 6 months to come in and the store even told her 6-9 months for most of their dresses. That seemed like a really long time to me...

I think shopping is a little hard at first when you don't know what you want & there are so many options. I think your mom will have more fun just making a final decision. I've been shopping for a while to figure out what style I want. I take pictures in the dresses & email them to my mom for her opinion. She was going to be here last weekend, but her flight was canceled. I found my dress, but it's probably better she wasn't here because I had to do a lot of driving & running around. It wasn't too much fun.

I went out dress shopping with a friend and found a few that I really loved. I went back a few weeks later with my mom to decide which looked the best. I ordered a Maggie Sottero dress and it took 6 months to get to the shop and 2 weeks for the alterations. It depends on how many dresses the store has to make alterations on. The seamstress who did mine said sometimes it can take longer. But you still have a long time so you'll be fine. I had to get mine done early because my fiance and I moved to Australia for the year so he could do his teaching degree and our wedding is 3 weeks after we get home.
