Hey Ladies..I’m new to the app. I wanted to know how long did it take your dress to come? How many months before your wedding did you order it?

    I ordered my dress in March for my November wedding. It was scheduled to arrive in September, but was delivered in August.

    I ordered my dress 10 months out and it took 7 months to arrive, then another 3 for alterations.

    My first dress was from David's Bridal. I ordered it August 24th and it came in September 20th. My wedding was set for the beginning of May at the time, so about 8 months before the wedding.

    My second dress I ordered from Azazie on November 13th and it's estimated to arrive on December 12th, which is about 2 1/2 months before our new date.

    This varies a LOT by store and manufacturer. David's and Azazie tend to have fairly short production times (0-8 weeks for DB, 6-10 weeks for Azazie?), but other manufacturers can be more in the 4-8 month range. Daughter's Rebecca Ingram dress (a Maggie Sottero brand) from an independent bridal shop was estimated at five months and arrived in four. I've seen posts on this forum from brides where the range was as much as 8+ months. So, you need to think about the kind of dress you're looking for to make a guess on manufacturing time.

    I ordered my dress in March of 2019 (which is early) and it arrived in at end of July 2019 and I picked it up in August of 2019. It is now in storage at my parent's house. It really depends on the shop and where you are ordering from though. My place told me it could take up to 10 months to come in because they base it off the wedding date.

    Definitely depends on where you order it from. It also depends on the kind of dress too - my Oleg Cassini from David's Bridal took a few weeks to get in, but some of their readymade stock is already in and ready to go. I ordered mine at the beginning of October and had it with me two weeks later - it's currently taking up residence in my closet! Also depends on the color, since some are more of a special order. I would say start looking at least 9 months out, so you have plenty of time to find one and order it. And don't forget that alterations also take time.

    I ordered mine 9 months out. It took 8 months to arrive and another month for alterations, so exactly 9 months lead time was needed.

    Ordered my dress in Sept. (which was about 6 mo away from wedding date) and they recommended Rush Shipping. (I accepted, which added about $200) I am now expecting my dress any day now! (10 weeks was how long the rush shipping would take.) Hope that helps Smiley heart

    I ordered my dress in May and it just came in this week. I’m getting married in April so I wanted to make sure I gave myself plenty of time!

    It took 8 months to arrive and I was freaking out because I thought it would arrive at least 2 months before my wedding... more like 6 weeks.

    Order my dress at the beginning of October this year. It’ll be delivered by the end of January/beginning of February. I’m getting married in May.
