Tips for the “last-minute” bride
Last minute shopping for a wedding gown can be exciting and exhilarating. It can also be stressful. Our team at Mélange Bridal recommends that brides purchase and order their gown at least six months before their wedding date. Once ordered, wedding dresses take 4-6 months to arrive at our boutique. This is because designers need time to create a gown and then ship it. After it is shipped, wedding dresses and accessories take time clearing customs before arriving at bridal salons.
However, we have also helped (and welcome) countless brides in need of a wedding dress sooner than the recommended timeline. Here are some tips to keep in mind and questions for your consultant if you are wedding gown shopping at the last minute.
