When to Buy a Wedding Dress

When to Buy a Wedding Dress

Have you just gotten engaged and are looking for a wedding dress? You've come to the right place! Choosing a wedding dress is not an easy decision. We think it should be an enjoyable and exciting experience, not a stressful one! Having trouble finding the perfect wedding dress?

Here's everything you need to know:



We always recommend that brides begin shopping for their wedding gown as soon as they decide on their venue and wedding date! The delivery time for some wedding dresses can range from six to eight months, so planning ahead is important. Due to COVID, there are also some shipping delays. 

In order to buy a gown in time, you should begin your search early. Plan your budget for your dress about a year before your wedding date; don't forget to consider other costs, such as shipping, taxes, shoes, jewelry, or a veil. Make sure you plan ahead for alterations, too!


Here, getting an early start is crucial! We recommend brides purchase their wedding dresses six to eight months before their wedding. During this time, you can peruse wedding dresses and decide what style you like.
