Alright, you summer and fall brides, you always hear you should buy your wedding dress at least six months in advance, and we heartily agree. But just in case you're wondering how late you can wait to order your wedding gown, here's an update on wedding dress order times from some of our favorite wedding gowns brands.
A dress ordered this week would ship to us around (add a 2 week cushion for late orders–it DOES happen!):
- Eden bridals: April 26th
- Sincerity: May 21
- Justin Alexander: May 21 (note: if you love Justin Alexander 8465, the tea length wedding dress, the manufacturer can NOT do a rush order for this dress and get it to you sooner; they are keeping some very limited stock on hand, but it's not usually on anything over a size 12, and this gown runs about 3 sizes smaller than your "street size")
- Allure Bridals: April 26th
So if you have a spring or early summer wedding, don't panic. We still have lots of options. Allure and Eden will both still cut a custom wedding gown on a rush, which typically takes about 8 weeks and costs an extra $100.
Allure and Sincerity both do a great job of stocking plus size wedding dresses, so we may be able to get you a gown in stock and have it shipped right away.
Our third option is to find something in stock at here at Strut. Our store has just received over 20 new gowns (with more on the way), so you have a selection of over 120 wedding gowns to choose from in sizes 16-32.
Give us a call if you're concerned about getting a wedding dress in time for your special day. We can work miracles!
