When to buy dress

About how many months in advance do you think you should buy your wedding dress, accessories, shoes, etc.?

    It does depend on the designer... some can take up to 6-9 months while others only take a couple weeks. Plus you will need time for alterations etc.

    It depends.  The designer of my dress - Casablanca - needed 6 months.  I ordered in October, it arrived in early April, I got alterations in two weeks and was married on May 5th.

    Other designers moved faster and/or you can buy off the rack and only need a few weeks for alterations.  It really depends on what you're after.

    Just bought an Amsale for my August wedding. They had to call the designer to make sure it would be ready in time and to do alterations. I would not wait any later than 7 months, plus it gives you plenty of time to plan our your asscesories and shoes and bouquet!
