Wedding Dress Booking

How far in advance did you book your wedding dress consultation? I'm planning to go September/October, and I assume with these closures there will be a backlog of brides wanting to get in. Should I be booking now or can I wait to coordinate an appointment?


I want to do the Kleinfeld thing so I assume that's in demand, and then check out a few other boutiques.

    I booked at David's Bridal last June for my end of September appointment. I definitely didn't need too book that far in advance I just did it when I decided I wanted to start dress shopping on my birthday haha

    I'll say it was very busy on the day that I was shopping so it was hard to look at dresses in the showroom myself (let alone with anyone I brought with me) if you have the luxury of shopping on a weekday instead of a sunday like I did I'm sure it would be easier for you to get an appointment

    I went looking for my dress (and got married) before Covid-19, but some dresses can take a year or longer to order, so I went about a year before the wedding date. My dress ended up taking 4 months to get in... and when it arrived it had a tear on it from the beading pulling at the fabric Smiley sad

    So then they had to reorder it on rush, which took another 3 months to get in...

    All in all, considering that Covid-19 is now delaying some things - I would book an appointment for as soon as you can just to be safe. But if you are sure you want to wait until the fall, then I would say it's best to book it in advance if they allow it just to be on the safe side.

    I would say to book now that way you have a secured date in the event everything gets back logged.
    I know on weekends when I had gone shopping (before all the COVID drama) we couldn't walk in to some stores because it was already to busy, I would say to book away!

    It wouldn't hurt to book now, at least you'll have peace of mind that you've got the appointment.


    I called and was lucky to get a cancellation appointment on the date my girls were available to come with me. It was so much fun, I'd love to do it again!

    Thanks Amanda! I didn't think walk-ins were a thing, so I'm glad I can go when the mood strikes!

    I didn't have to make an appointment and no consultations. All the bridal stores that I had went to were walks ins. As well I didn't go to any big wedding shops like Klienfelds or David's Bridal. I had gone to local bridal shops in the city. I had just looked around each store and picked which ones I liked and different styles and went from there.

    How far in advance did you book the appointment? I am wondering if consultation appointments fill up fast well in advance and If I should be booking now for September.

    My wedding was originally planned for august 2020 and I went and started shopping around in January 2019. The only reason I went early was because the dress that I was eyeing was in the window of one of the bridal stores. I had tried it on and it was everything I was wanting and more. I had to order it in my size and it took 7 months for it to come in. The dress needs a little bit of alterations but I won't be getting it done until Mid May of next year and will take about a month or so. (My wedding is now August 2021)
