My beautiful mothers of the bride and groom:
Dress shopping can be overwhelming and intimidating at first glance. There are so many questions to ask yourself: should you go with a short gown, a long evening gown, a sexy dress, a more conservative dress, a flowy-style dress, a mermaid-style dress, a dress adorned with beading, a dress with minimal beading, a dress with a v-neckline, a strapless dress, a silk chiffon dress, a taffeta dress, etc. But what many mothers of the bride and groom fail to remember through this roller-coaster that is dress-shopping is the delivery time! Most dresses require between 10-12 weeks for delivery. Also, upon arrival, a dress will require alterations and that will require fitting appointments. In order to have enough time to shop around, find the perfect dress, wait for its arrival, and have the dress altered, we recommend our mothers of the bride and groom giving themselves between 6-8 months prior to the event date.
Don’t walk down the aisle on your child’s special day in a sample, off-the-rack gown. Wear a gown that will make you feel beautiful.
