At Stardust Celebrations, we know that saying “yes to the dress” is one of the most exciting moments in your wedding journey. But what happens next? How long does it take for your dream gown to be made and delivered? Understanding the timeline is crucial for planning your wedding preparations smoothly. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you navigate this process with ease.


The Dress Ordering Timeline: What to Expect


Initial Consultation and Selection (1-2 Weeks)


Your journey begins with an initial consultation at our Plano salon, where our experienced bridal consultants help you find the perfect dress. Once you’ve made your selection and said “yes” to the dress, we take precise measurements to ensure the gown fits you perfectly.



Dress Production (3-6 Months)


The production timeline varies depending on the designer and the complexity of the dress. Most bridal gowns are made to order, and this process can take anywhere from three to six months. During this time, the designer carefully crafts your dress, ensuring every detail meets the highest standards of quality.



Final Fittings and Alterations (1-3 Months)


After your dress arrives at our salon, we schedule your first fitting. This is where we make any necessary adjustments to ensure the perfect fit. Most brides need two to three fittings over one to three months. Our expert seamstresses handle these alterations with precision, ensuring your gown looks flawless on your wedding day.


Planning Your Timeline: Key Considerations


Given the timeline outlined above, it’s essential to start shopping for your dress at least six to ten months before your wedding date. This allows ample time for production, delivery, and alterations, ensuring you avoid any last-minute stress.


Rush Orders


If you’re working with a shorter timeline, don’t worry. Many designers offer rush order options for an additional fee. This can significantly reduce the production and shipping time. Discuss this option with your bridal consultant if you find yourself in a time crunch.


Tips for a Smooth Process

  1. Book Early Appointments: Schedule your initial consultation as early as possible to give yourself plenty of time.
  2. Stay Informed: Regularly communicate with our team to stay updated on your dress’s progress.
  3. Plan for Alterations: Factor in time for fittings and alterations when planning your timeline.
  4. Keep an Open Mind: Be open to exploring different styles and options, especially if you’re working with a tight schedule.
