Need a wedding dress in less than six months?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone! We get lots of brides here looking for a wedding dress for their wedding which is less than six months away. Many traditional wedding shops require at least six months to order and alter a wedding dress for your wedding day but if you have less time then this you do still have a couple of options and we’ve made it a priority to give you as many options as possible.
At The Boutique & Co. we have a number of brands who’s standard delivery time is around 3-4 months, we also get regular available stock lists where they have some popular styles in popular sizes already available! Although leaving it later to start your wedding dress shopping will leave you with slightly less options there will still be plenty of options!

Alternatively many people will suggest a sample sale which certainly has some huge benefits though there are also some downsides. Sample sales tend to happen outside of the “peak season” for wedding dress shopping and generally sell off discontinued samples, which are often the dresses that didn’t sell well in the last 1-2years so the key is timing when trying to find the one at a sample sale. Our guide on how to find your perfect wedding dress at a sample sale is here. You can also get some absolute steals at sample sales with dresses being reduced by 50% or sometimes even more from the standard retail price. Typically most shops will have samples in store of a size 14-16, ours tend to be a 12-14 with some smaller sizes, so you may find you need to get some alterations done to make sure it fits – this can be quite considerable if you need to take it down 3 sizes but if you need a dress in a hurry you’ll get to walk away with it that day!
So whatever your preference or timescale why not get in touch and book your bridal appointment to discuss your options and try on some dresses!
