When is the best time to buy your wedding dress?
Well, let me guess – within 6 months after the engagement or is it just right after been given a ring? Theoretically, it doesn’t really matter but practically, there are a few things to be taken into account.
Usually, January is the peak engagement season, so that bridal market has taken note, making this very new start of the year wedding shopping prime time. Oh well, why not beat the winter blues by trying on beautiful wedding dresses or simply browsing online, while enjoying a hot drink.
On one hand, your second half should be also involved into this, sometimes, rather sophisticated process, yet, without making any drama as to the tight time frames or budgets.
On the other, new year – new dress sounds just right, especially taking into account the fact, that this cold period also commands for many sample sales as well as arrival of new models. Hence, it can well be rather great chance to kill two birds with one stone.
Perhaps, being very rational and well-organized also means that even if you are planning your wedding in summer or autumn, winter allows you enough time not just for consideration but customization and alteration as well as plenty of time to choose accessories, plan the ceremony and invite guests. Oh, let’s be truthful to ourselves – no rest for the wicked.
Finally, I just want to make the point that you should at least start thinking about it a bit an advance as serious companies may take as much as up to 6-9 months to deliver you the dress of your dreams due to a simple fact that they also have some other commitments and difficulties, no need to mention other brides. So… since you have already said yes, no need to hesitate any more. Just go for it and enjoy it!
