We know that we have answered this question before- but that is because it is one of the most commonly searched questions on google and in real-time from brides who are newly engaged! It makes sense; who wants to be more stressed than would already be expected during wedding planning- and not knowing when you should dress shop can create a lot of stress.

Did you know that you should be shopping for your wedding dress at least a year out from your wedding? This is for multiple reasons such as practicality; depending on the designer, gowns can take anywhere from 5-8 months to come in and the timeline for varying seamstress specialists can take anywhere from 1-3 months!

You also don't want to create unnecessary pressure on what is already such a big decision for such an important day. Shopping at least a year out allows you the most options possible without the added pressure or limitations of certain timeline restrictions

If you’re on a shorter timeline, don’t worry, there are still other options for you like off-the-rack and rush availability! We at BoChic Bridal Boutique also do have a sample sale rack where you can purchase your gown at a discounted price and take it home with you the same day. Something to be mindful of is that rush options are limited during the holiday season, and timelines can be lengthier this time of year as well.
