Time to dress shop?

Harriet, 27 of April of 2024 at 18:17 Posted on Wedding Attire 0 4
Hi,


I’m getting married in October 2025 and was wondering when is the right time to start dress shopping? I have been looking at the styles I like already but I’ve heard mixed messages about when to actually visit a shop so I was wondering if you could help me?
Thank you in advance, Harriet Smiley smile x

    Hello! I get married this July and I started shopping and found my dress at the first place in May of last year! I would recommend once purchased sort your seemstress as I got my ladies last appointment and I booked that in either December or January thinking I had lots of time! Enjoy it all! It’s a very exciting time!

    Hey! Right now October 2025 feels miles away but honestly it will be here before you know it.

    I am getting married in 12 weeks time and I started shopping in February 2023, I finally bought my dress in March 2023 - The shop owner of the boutique I bought mine from told me that 12-18 months before is the ideal time, especially if you are having a bespoke wedding dress made. Also, I agree with Shay, definitely get your seamstress booked as soon as you have your dress, the appointments go fast.
