Wedding Dress Shopping Timeline

According to MS Event Group, 43% of all engagements occur between November and January each year.  That means we are quickly approaching peek engagement season.  Here at Ellens Bridal & Dress Boutique we find that fact very exciting.  We know that one of the first questions of a Bride to Be is When should I start shopping for my wedding dress?

Wedding dresses take between five and six months to order.  It is more than likely that your wedding dress will need alterations to fit you properly.  You should start the alterations process two months prior to your wedding day.  This means at a minimum you should be shopping for your wedding dress seven to eight months prior to your wedding day.  Earlier is best to allow you time to enjoy the process of finding your dream dress.

The worse thing that can happen is to find your dream dress and then learn the dress can not be delivered in a timely manner.   We want you to say Yes to the dress of your dreams, not settle for a dress you must buy off the rack.

At Ellens Bridal & Dress Boutique we take pride in providing an elegant and relaxed setting for our Brides to Be.  Your personal stylist will walk with you from saying YES to saying I DO and guide you every step of the way.  We invite you in for your own Ellens Experience.

Have a shorter timeline?  Do not panic!  We have beautiful options for you as well.  Many of our designers offer rush shipping and carry immediate ship dresses.
