Hard to believe it’s already the 1st of November! And as the end of the year is
coming closer, we thought it might be helpful to give you a quick update on how
long it takes to have your dress ready for your big day, especially as we got
the feeling in the last couple of weeks that many brides are not aware
of the current delivery times.
💜 The delivery time for a wedding dress at the moment can be anything
between 4 to 7 months, at least with our designers.
The delivery time for almost all of our recent orders is 5 to 6 months
and we always have to allow for approx. 2 weeks for slight delays
that can accure from time to time.
So if you want to be on the safe side and want to have the full range of dresses
to choose from, allow for 6 months from the day you say Yes to the Dress 🥰
💜 In addition, you will need 2 to 3 months for your alterations before the wedding.
Just like with the designers, that depends on the dressmaker you choose.
Just from our experience this year, the dressmakers and seamstresses are very busy
and might need a bit more time than the usual 8 weeks.
So do yourself and these amazing ladies a favour and allow for enough time here
as well ☺️ The last thing you (and they 😅) want is massive pressure in the busy
and exciting weeks just before the wedding
💜 So if you want to make the most of your dress shopping,
please do not start later than 10 months before your wedding.
You might want to visit several shops and it will take time to make your decision,
so keep it relaxed and start early enough.
If you’re a 2023 bride with a wedding date before September,
we’d recommend to book in with your favourite shops soon as especially
weekend appointments can have a waiting time as well.
We hope this information helps you a bit and we might see you soon ☺️💜
