When is the right time to start looking for a wedding dress?

‘I’ve got loads of time!’

This is one of the most common misconceptions among brides. There are often other factors that may delay brides in looking for their wedding dress so we have listed a few to hopefully help you figure out the best time for you to find your perfect wedding dress.

‘I want to loose weight!’ 

This is what we say to our brides that may have a particular body hang up;

1) Your fiance loves you!

2) You are getting married and what bride doesn’t look stunning! (the right wedding dress will work wonders)

3) You are beautiful as you are and it is all about how you feel in a dress regardless of the size!

When looking for your perfect dress it’s a feeling. This may sound bizarre to anyone who has an entire pintrest board of various images of their dream dress but until you see your body in a variety of styles and the way you feel and how the dress feels on you, you will find it hard to make a decision.

Here at the boutique we work with you, your ideas the type of venue you have chosen and what elements a dress must or must not have. After all looking for your wedding dress is a special occasion not one to be feared!

In the right dress you should feel fantastic just as you are but don’t forget your gown will be altered to fit so if you loose a bit of weight it’s a bonus and your gown can just be taken in.

“I need to save up!” 

We meet a few brides that leave very little time before the wedding to find there dress as they have been busy saving.

We all want to save up a little extra, maybe see where the budget is going in other areas first and for some the dress may be pushed down the list.

We at Jdezire will work with you and your budget. We will be mindful not to show you dresses that are far out of reach but give you all the information so you can make decisions on whats comfortable within your budget. Our gowns range from £495 to £1,695 across our Ready to Wear and main collection and it’s always worth asking if we have a sale event coming up.

It’s also worth being aware that the earlier you order your wedding dress the more time you can have to pay.  The standard process is 50% on order and the balance when the gowns arrives but if you have more time until your wedding  it may be possible to split the gown price into 3 or 4 installments allowing you time to save between each.

And finally back to…

‘I’ve got loads of time!’

We advise that the perfect time to find your gown is  a year before your wedding date. There are lots of things to be mindful of, delivery times of the gown, time for alterations. A year is a comfortable amount of time to account for these elements and to make everything relaxed and stress free.

Sometimes gowns can take up to 6 months to be delivered so any thing less than 7 months can start to be tight whilst also allowing time for alterations!

However If you are short for time for any reason don’t fret because there are other options!

  • Rush deliveries mean we can get some of our designers gowns in a tight time frame (Even within the week if they are in stock in the UK).
  • Ready to wear gowns! Ready to wear means available off the peg, these are our sample and stock dresses in store that have been tried on. They only come in the size that they are and alterations can be made to make them smaller but making them larger can be tricky and expensive but not impossible!
  • Sales!!! Keep your eyes peeled for sales too as this is a good way of picking up an off the peg bargain!

We are fortunate at Jdezire to have an in-house seamstress that will be able to work her schedule to ensure your alterations can be done for your big day if you are short for time or have plenty of time! Please be aware the summer months are super busy so we advice for you to book in advance.

We hope this has provided you with some key information and if you have any further questions please feel free to message us. You can find us on facebook and instagram.

Much love,
