We recommend a great time to purchase your dress is 12-14 months out if you have that timeframe. This allows for plenty of time for the gown to come in, to check the dress with your retailer, to make sure that everything is ready before alterations and it gives you a good space of time to work out your colour schemes, florist, cake, bridesmaids, mother of the bride and groom, what you will have on your menu and so much more.
- When is the best time for me to order a Henry Roth wedding dress and why?
We know it is hard to understand these are the things you need to factor in timewise. Your wedding gown is pivotal in determining what your bridesmaids will wear, that leads to additional guidelines for mother of the bride and groom right down to what the groomsmen are wearing. If you think about it nothing can be ordered until the wedding dress is in place. Additionally, we advise that you allow a minimum 6-10 weeks from the wedding date to start the first fitting. The 12 months lead time allows for a buffer for gowns being delayed for reasons that include lace taking longer lead times to produce and of high demand, peak congestion in calendar period which include Western Christmas and New Year and Chinese new year which can sometimes have a knock on effect from December to the middle of February. Additionally, if the gown has any flaw that requires adjusting and re cutting again a buffer is there in a more comfortable way for us to work with the bride. The reason we have chosen a network of phenomenal retailers that have incredible experience is to work with each individual bride and bridal party to optimise and maximise how you look when you walk down the aisle. As a result, of course we will work with the time frame as possible and advise you as a bride or bridesmaid what is not possible.
