When Should I Start Wedding Dress Shopping?

Three wedding dresses

When should you start shopping for your wedding dress? NOW! Don’t wait until the last minute to choose the most amazing, beautiful, and central focus of your big day. Instead, use your gown as a starting point for all of your wedding planning.

Your wedding dress sets the stage for your entire wedding day. The aesthetic, feel, and look of the entire event depend on your dress – from bridesmaids’ gowns and groom’s attire to your veils and jewelry, every little decision will ultimately be based on the details of the bridal gown.

Additionally, reputable salons are custom ordering a brand new dress to be made just for the bride, and this can take months to complete. Gowns at The Dress Shop, for example, are made by hand and are made to order for each bride to meet her specifications – from color to size to modifications.

Once a gown arrives, it will need alterations to be the perfect fit. Since bridal gowns are so detailed and involved, it usually takes at least three alterations appointments spread out over the course of a few months to ensure your gown is perfect (both inside and out).

Finding THE dress as early as possible is key to a smooth, worry-free wedding planning experience. We understand that wedding planning can be stressful – finding a dress should not be. Finding it early, knowing it’s on its way, and using it to make important decisions to plan the entire event is the most wonderful gift. Shop early, shop with us!
