When to purchase your wedding dress - hints and tips for 2019 Spring and Summer brides

London’s only specialist short and tea length wedding dress company

2019 brides this is for you. How is the planning going? Spring summer 2019 probably still feels a way off, after all Christmas isn’t even with us yet! Our short tea length wedding dresses and full-length vintage wedding dresses all take around 5-6 months to arrive from date of order. As the summer slots fill up this can become 6-7 months!

As London’s only specialist short and tea length wedding dress company, now is a good time to book your first appointment. This gives you time and space to return for a second appointment if required before you decide on which wedding dress will be the ‘one’. This then allows for time for alterations once your own very special dress arrives with us.

To give you an idea a dress ordered in September 2018 will arrive into us around February/March 2019. A Spring bride then has a good number of weeks to finalise accessories and organise alterations. While gowns ordered in December 2018 would arrive with us around June 2019, and dresses not ordered until January would arrive in July 2019.

We know some brides like to delay choosing their gown as they plan to lose weight and want to leave measuring to the last minute. It is possible to get some dresses more quickly some of the time (with a rush fee), but if you are thinking this you should know that dress can be taken in 2-3 dress sizes on arrival by a skilled seamstress.

We do keep a selection of dresses in stock that can be purchased off-the-peg and taken on the day, but you will have more flexibility to have the exact dress you want, in your choice of colour, length and finish, if you allow time to order though.
