Last Minute Wedding Dress Shopping Tips
Updated: Oct 7
So, your wedding is right around the corner and you don't have a wedding dress? Is everyone giving you that wide-eyed panicked look when you tell them? Ignore them! You have plenty of choices and we'd love to help you. We often work with brides that have wedding dates quickly approaching.
With a little flexibility on your part and a lot of knowledge on our part, we can get you in a gorgeous dress in time for your big day. Check out some of your options below and schedule your appointment here:
1. Shop the dresses we have in stock. Some stores may call this shopping "Off-the-Rack". We carry a variety of styles and sizes in stock and ready to take home the same day. Just like buying a formal gown from a department store, you'll try on gowns in your size and select your favorite to take home the same day.
2. Shop dresses the designer has in stock. When a bride's wedding date is less than 4 months away, we check the availability of your favorite gowns during your appointment. We work with established designers that have provided us with online access to their inventory. If a designer has a gown in stock it takes about 2 weeks to arrive once your order is placed. If a dress is "in-progress" this means they're already creating the dress and will give an estimated arrival date.
3. Shop with rush or priority shipping. Many designers have options to ship dresses on a rush or priority basis. This means that your gown will be made a little bit quicker than their standard 4-8 month timeline. Rush and priority gown orders arrive about 2-4 weeks quicker than normal. Additional fees do apply and can range from $75-$500.
4. Shop our online wedding dress sample sale. We always have a rotating inventory of sale wedding dresses online at https://www.tradesy.com/closet/lolagracebridal/. You can purchase your gown directly from the site and it will be shipped directly to you.
5. Shop our wedding accessories online. Maybe you just need your veil or your finishing touch accessories? You can purchase those online at https://www.lolagracebridal.com/shop. You can purchase directly from our site and have it shipped directly to you.
Whichever way you decide to shop for your last minute wedding dress, we have a few pieces of advice: stay calm, don't procrastinate, be flexible and book at Lola Grace Bridal. We can't wait to help you!
