My boyfriend just proposed to me and in a few months. I am hoping for a later summer wedding but we have not complete much preparation yet. questioning if anyone any ideas for when is the good time to buy the dress?
Wedding Dress shopping can be short of long depending on what you have in mind. If you have fancy tastes then it could take a long time if you dont have a dress made for you.
Many dresses need fitting and some shops can take a long time to have the dress perfectly fitted for you. Small companies normally offer a better service over the busy ones due to time allocated to clients. (usual means better customer service)
I would say start looking for a dress about 8 months before the wedding to get an idea. You should buy the wedding dress about 4 months before the wedding as weight and size is often seasonal.
It is best to get your wedding dress fitted and purchased one or two months before the wedding.
But PLEASE check the fitting a week before the wedding!
I have had brides NOT fit into their wedding dresses on the day of the wedding when doing the bridal preparations…. so be safe and careful..
Bride also can lose weight in the week of their wedding just as easy as put it on.. and we dont want that!!
