Start Your Wedding Dress Shopping Early!

The first step is to start early! Most dressmakers require an order six or even eight months ahead of time. Starting a full year ahead of time gives you the time you need to try on dresses and give the decision the proper amount of agonizing. If you are short on time, it can be possible to get a dress made in as little as a month or two, but this is much more expensive.

This will not only save money, but give you enough time that you do not feel rushed to make a decision. read more
