How long in advance should I order a wedding gown?
We recommend that a bride orders her wedding gown 6-12 months prior to her wedding date. Our workroom requires a 4-month lead time to make a wedding gown without incurring any rush fees, but brides must consider allowing ample time for alterations. Brides who order early will have more flexibility and opportunities in scheduling fittings with our recommended alterations specialists. Ideally, give yourself plenty of time to plan all of the creative details of your wedding.
If you're working with a shorter timeframe, no worries! We can usually accommodate rush orders, depending on your specific needs. Gown orders placed with less than 4 months of production time typically incur rush fees.
You can also shop our signature style and quality without the conventionality of placing a custom gown order with our Ready To Wed collection and sample sale dresses. These styles are ready to go home with you. The Ready To Wed line ranges from $1300-3000, plus Little White Dresses from $500-700. We also have a selection of sample sale dresses available to purchase off-the-rack and retail from $700-1000.
