Dress Question

Recommended Posts

I am starting a workout program today ( Jillian Michael's 30 day shred) and I was wondering if anyone can tell me how far in advance I can order my dress? I found one I like at Davids Bridal and my wedding in early February 2013.  I was thinking May but now I want to give myself some time to lose weight.  Would August/September be to late?

 

What do you think?

David's Bridal you can order the dresses but you can also buy off the rack, so you have a lot more time!   Also, they can do alterations there so if you go soon and loose weight they can adjust your dress.  I didn't buy my dress there, but my dress has to be taken in and its not a problem.  You can also look at corset backs which allow some wiggle room for weight fluctuation.

The time for ordering depends on the dress, if they normally stock it or not and can even vary by color choice (white, soft white or ivory).  The one I got I was lucky enough they had my size and color in stock and I bought off the rack.  If I had wanted the other color it would have taken 14-15 weeks as a rush order.  I'd say if you know what you want and you need to order it, give them minimum 4-6 months and you can always do the alterations if you lose more weight.  =)

I have heard it is best to give yourself 6-9 months. I am ordering my dress in the next week or so which leaves me about 9 months. I think it depends a lot on the designer as well.
