When’s the best time to have your wedding dress fitted?
The first models from the new collection are ready from the start of July every year, with all models ready at the start of October. There is no winter and summer collection for bride and groom.
95% of weddings take place inside, so you don’t need warm clothes even if you get married in winter. There are however some lovely accessories and details to give your wedding dresses a winter cachet.
If you’re getting married in July, August, or September, then you need to take the holiday season into account. Your dress needs to be ready for modification at the start of April/May, with your order placed earlier too.
Also consider that your partner will normally only come to choose his suit once you have chosen your dress. The less time you leave, the more pressure he will be under with his planning.
There’s a special procedure for brides who are pregnant or hope to be. Please enquire at your fitting appointment.
See below how you can approach your selection and fitting appointment, and decide what timing is best for you. Between 12 months, 6 to 8 months, or 4 months before the wedding.
Type: Plenty of time
It’s 12 months before the wedding
You partner has asked you to marry him, or you’ve decided together, and you want to choose your dress as soon as possible.
When it’s done, it’s done, and you don’t want to deal with the stress of it all happening at a later date.
You’ve seen a style you like in the current collection; it’s your dream dress and you don’t want to miss it.
Type: In good time
It’s around 10 months before the wedding
You like to be well-organised and want everything to run perfectly without any stress.
Type: On Time
It’s 8 months before the wedding
With the world changing production with many manufacturers having production times of up to 7 months, and considering you also have to come back after production for your personal adjustments, at least 8 months before your wedding is actually recommended. Either the dress you choose can still be produced in time or you choose from the models that are available in your size.
Type: Just in Time
It’s 6 months before the wedding
You’ve only just decided to get married. You haven’t had time to organise things yet. You want to leave it to the last moment to make your choice. Your partner will have to make an appointment for his suit immediately after you have chosen your dress. Everything needs to be planned perfectly now.
You won’t have time for a break when planning later appointments.
Either the dress you choose can still be produced in time or you choose from the models available in your size.
Type: Last Minute
It’s 4 months before the wedding
You really do love excitement. Now nothing can go wrong. Your schedule should be aligned with us in advance so that the appointments are scheduled.
For an additional price, some designers can still make your dress or costume depending on scheduling and fabric availability.
This is no longer possible for the entire collection, these quick orders are only possible for a small part of the collection and after checking with the production departments. And if it is possible, know that your dress will only be ready a few days before the wedding.
Or you can choose a dress from the models that are still in stock in your size. Please note that retouching must still be possible.
Type: I need it yesterday
It’s 3 months before the wedding
For an added cost, the workshop can still create your dress or suit, depending on the planning and availability of materials. This is no longer possible for the whole collection; these fast orders are only possible for a selection of styles. It will only be ready a few days before the wedding.
It’s best to avoid this if at all possible. You could easily buy all your accessories for the same price as this added cost. If it falls in the holiday season, it’s possible that this service won’t be available at all.
