Here is question future brides ask themselves most of the time ! Finding the wedding dress is a very important step, which is why it is imperative to do it in time to avoid disappointment. But when is the ideal time to start looking for your wedding dress? Let’s find out together…
THE IDEAL TIMING
The ideal would be to start your research at least 4 to 9 months before the big day . Not only will your choice of dress influence many aspects of your ceremony, but you will also have many more choices as well.
The majority of boutiques and designers present their new collections around the month of October. This is therefore the best time to embark on your first appointments and start looking for your wedding dress.
Once you have made your choice, you will of course have to give the store or designer time to order your dress and make it.
Little advice: Why not create a mood board before your first appointment. This will allow you to define your tastes and identify the predominant trends. Then select the stores in which you would like to do your fittings.
Make sure their style matches what you are looking for. No need to make an appointment in a bohemian style boutique if you are looking for a “couture” and structured dress.
Note that depending on the type of store you have selected, the process and the number of appointments will vary.
Generally allow two appointments once you have placed your order. One for trying on your dress and noting any alterations to be made. The second to check that the alterations are correct and recover your dress.
Designer – Stylist
For custom-made you will generally need between 3 and 6 appointments of around 1 hour, from your first prototype fitting to the delivery of your dress. The process may seem long, but some creators can work in short deadlines (2 to 3 months) depending on the period.
