A: We would recommend 6 to 9 months prior to your wedding is the ideal time to purchase your bridal gown. This gives you plenty of time to choose the look and feel of your gown and helps you set the overall style of your wedding. In the event, that you need to work to a tighter timeframe we will do all that we can to accommodate you. The Bride’s Choice has options for rush orders or you may also be able to purchase a sample gown.
