Nothing is worse than finding the dream dress and hearing that you can’t get it in time for your wedding. Be aware that most bridal shops do not keep a stock of dresses in the back for you to have any size you want. When you order your gown, in most cases it will have to be made to order. Usually about 9 months to a year before your wedding date is a safe time frame to purchase your gown. This DOES depend on the designer so it may be best to find out what kind of shipping time to expect, and most bridal shops should be able to give you a time estimate.
