Okay, first, you can learn more about why do wedding dresses take so long to make?

Why do wedding dresses take so long to make?

Answer 1: The simple answer is that there is a lot of work going into each dress, especially if we are talking about a custom wedding dress. Starting everything from scratch and nailing down the final design can be a long process, even more, if the bride is not sure what exactly she wants. Then creating the pattern, adding beading and embroidery, it can be a lot of man-hours depending on the design.

However, lead time can truly depend on the supplier as well. The interesting question is how can they deliver a wedding dress in less than 2–3 weeks (with rush order) without sacrificing quality, but in general, it takes about 6 months with a standard order.

In our perspective, the average leading time should be between 2–3 months, provided a bride is clear on the design. Do not buy the story that your dress is being created for well over two months, it simply does not work like that.

Answer 2: There really is a lot of work involved in making a custom dress from scratch, especially a detailed piece for a wedding. The dress-maker has to create a flat pattern and usually they make a sample out of cheaper fabrics first, to see how the wedding dress will fit. After a trying-on session, alterations may need to be made and it can take a while before the basic silhouette is perfected.

After this process, the final wedding dress is put together, and that could include working with beads, lace, and embroidery, all of which take a lot of time and is intricate work. If you’re looking to get a custom wedding dress faster, it could be a good idea to buy a ready-made wedding dress and simply have the fit slightly changed by the dress-maker instead.

Wedding Dresses Processing Making

Answer 3: Part of it is that many of them have complex cuts, patterns, custom construction, and fabrics. You can’t sew too many wedding dresses in standard assembly line clothing construction, they are often hand sown.

On the other hand, if you don’t want to go custom, go to a good department store, get a nice long train wedding dress, then go to the fabric store to get a veil.

Answer 4: The creation of a wedding dress is a very difficult process, which demands not only great skills but also pretty much time. The more qualitative the wedding dress is, the more time is supposed to be spent on its creation.

Of course, each person may learn how to make a wedding dress, but it doesn’t mean that all get really good results.

Answer 5: If you want something unique, try to make yourself and see how much time it takes.

Because of the long processing of making a wedding dress, when you order your wedding dress, especially it close to your wedding day, you need to have enough patience to wait for a total delivery time, that’s why you should buy it earlier.

How long does it take to get a wedding dress?

Answer 1: It depends on so many different things, that an answer is not easy.

If you order a wedding dress through a typical store in the US, usually allow 4 weeks. This is for an in-stock design and includes basic alterations, like the length.

If you are making any design changes (neckline, sleeves, etc.) probably 6 to 8 weeks, and a lot of money.

If you are having a wedding dress made for you, it will depend on the materials and the seamstress.

If, on the other hand, you are talking about the design and manufacturing process, designs and samples would usually be done and shown at least one season in advance, like most ready to wear.

Estimate Delivery Time

Answer 2: It depends on the fabric. If you have all types of fabrics that make up the wedding dress, the time will be significantly shorter.

For example, this wedding dress has seven different types of fabrics and laces. If one type is missing it will delay the time of preparation.

Answer 3: This time frame will vary from place to place. Speaking personally, as someone who has made and designed wedding gowns for over 20 years, I tend to ask for a minimum of 3 months to be on the safe side for custom pieces. However, for ready-to-wear pieces on our online store, at a maximum; 4–6 weeks, however, we could bring a wedding dress to life in a matter of a day or two depending on the depth of details on the gown!

When should you buy your wedding dress?

When we talk about wedding dress shopping, one of the most common questions we get is, ‘When should I start wedding dress shopping?’. Your wedding dress shopping timeline depends on a few things, from where you’re buying your dress or the kind of dress you’re buying, to how soon you’re getting married, so today, we’re going to cover all bases and answer the question of when to start shopping for a wedding dress.

You don’t need to be wearing a certain dress to get married, in truth, you can walk into a shop today and buy a white dress (or any kind of dress!), and get married in it tomorrow. That said if you want to have as many options open to you as possible, and the full, ‘classic wedding dress shopping experience’ without feeling rushed into a decision, you should start wedding dress shopping at least eight months before your wedding with a view to ordering at least six months out. That will give you plenty of time for research, making appointments, making a final decision, manufacturing, shipping, and alterations.
