YES! They finally popped the question… or maybe you’re the one who asked?!? Either way, it’s time to celebrate by finding the wedding dress of your dreams! To help your wedding planning experience be a smooth one, here is a timeline for when to find your dress.
12 months or more from your wedding– START SHOPPING. COVID-19 has impacted almost every industry, including wedding gowns! To ensure that you aren’t cutting it close for your dress to arrive in time, start shopping at least 12 months before your wedding. Getting married in a 18 months, or even two years? Even better! You can shop as early as you’d like, but if you wait until later on, odds are that the dream dress you’ve been looking at online won’t be available for rush order!
6-8 months after your purchase- Your dress arrives in-store. Hooray! It’s here—It’s finally here! One of our staff will give you a call to pick up your gorgeous dress. You’ll take it home for safekeeping until your first fitting.
4-2 months before your wedding– Your first fitting. Now is the time for you to meet with our amazing seamstress and let your vision become a reality! If you want sleeves added, a train removed, a strap included, or other major customizations, it will be closer to the 4 months. If you just want to make sure the dress fits every curve of your body correctly, it will be about two months out from your wedding day.
2-4 weeks before your wedding– your final fitting. This is a quality check to make any last-minute fixes. We want to make you feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day! This appointment is an opportunity for you to make sure every seam and sparkle is in the right place.
Your Wedding Day- It’s time to strut! Congratulations on successfully getting through planning your wedding. We hope that you dance the night away in your perfect dress with your new spouse, family, and friends!
