Time Really Does Fly

Time Really Does Fly

November 15, 2016

You are engaged and you have a full year before you will walk down the aisle. You feel like you have time to waste. You don’t understand why books tell you to order your gown at least 9 months before the wedding. Well, allow me to explain. If you are now in the beginning stages of shopping for your bridal gown and you have a full year until your wedding, then you really are doing great. You will be able to order almost anything your budget will allow for. But do you really have a full year? Well, you do if the dress comes in and needs no alterations at all; which includes no hem or bustle. You also have a full year if you are not planning on a portrait before the wedding. Portraits are typically done two months before the wedding. If you add a month of alterations with the two months for a portrait you are already three months into your timeline…time flies when you are having fun, and what’s more fun than planning your wedding! It will be here before you know it.
How long does it take to order? It depends on the production of your gown. Your gown could already be in production and arrive in a month, but then again it could be anywhere from four to six months, which is the typical production time. Are you making custom changes with the pattern? It all takes time. So very realistically nine months from placing your order to walking the aisle is best to be able to stay in the “NO STRESS about the DRESS Zone”.
What if I have a short engagement? All the more reason to shop at Elegant Bridals! We have over 200 bridal gowns in stock that can be purchased the day you walk in. You just have to be aware that you have to take it in the size and color that is available here. We have helped many a bride walk the aisle in just a few weeks time; however that is the exception and not the rule.
You are engaged and you have a year to plan…start early and with the Elegant Bridals’ team the one thing you can plan for is having no stress about your dress. Best Wishes to you in your wedding planning!
