How Far In Advance To Start Dress Shopping For Your Special Event
Jan 5, 2021
A good tailor can typically finish simple alterations within a week. However, if you know your event is at a peak time of year such as prom season or Christmas, it's wise to give yourself and your seamstress an extra week or two to ensure the job can get finished properly and unhurried.
In the uncertain times we are in while the industry continues to see production delays, we suggest to start shopping and looking at designs three to four months in advance in case you need to order a style that isn't in stock. If you are looking at designer dress gowns, often these styles are made to order which may take up to 4-6 weeks.
Depending on where you are located, prom season happens from March to June, so if you were wanting to give yourself an unhurried amount of time, this would mean starting to look for your special dress in December or January. This will give yourself the best opportunity to shop the hottest styles, designs and find the perfect gown for your special event!
The right prom dress should make you feel confident and sexy and the experience should be an exciting one. I goes without saying you’ll want to look your best on your big day which is why shopping in advance will help you avoid unnecessary stress and hassle .
There are literally thousands of designer dresses and styles to choose from, so if you have an important event coming get inspiration for performance gowns, photo shoot dresses or prom looks on our Instagram feed or browse our selections on our website !
