If you’re newly engaged and getting ready to buy a wedding dress, you’ve come to the right place! Here at Mollé Bridals, we understand that figuring out when to buy a wedding dress can seem daunting. It’s an important process that should be fun, not stressful! If you’re concerned at all about the process of finding a wedding dress, read on to find out everything you need to know about when to buy a wedding dress:
We always recommend that our brides start shopping for their wedding gown shortly after they choose a venue and wedding date! It helps to plan in advance because most wedding dresses can take anywhere between four and six months to arrive; therefore, you won't have to worry about rush orders! It’s a good idea to start shopping a year in advance. This is a great time to go ahead and set your budget for your wedding dress; keep in mind extra costs for shipping, taxes, potential alterations, shoes, veils, and jewelry.
“The sooner, the better” is our mantra when it comes to wedding dress shopping! Now, when it comes to specifically buying your dress, we recommend that you decide on a dress around six months out from your wedding. This allows you a couple of months to shop around and decide what style fits you most.
