When to Start Wedding Dress Shopping

Hey there lovely! Wondering when is the best time to start looking for your wedding dress? Director of the award-winning boutique, TDR Bridal Birmingham talks wedding dress shopping timings…

“So there’s no set “rule” to this, every bride is different. It ultimately depends on you and your individual circumstances.

You might want to be super organised like some of our brides and shop 24-30 months in advance- this gives you longer to plan, organise & budget well for your wedding.

12 – 18 months in advance – The majority of our brides do this as it gives us plenty of time for your wedding dress to arrive and for all your fittings to be done.

You might only have 6 – 12 months because you got a great deal on a shorter lead time with your venue? This is no problem for us at all. We will still have plenty of time to have your dress made & delivered to us plus we have the added benefit of 4 onsite seamstresses so you’re guaranteed to have your dress fitted perfectly in time for your special day.

If you have 1 – 6 months, don’t worry! We can help you! Lots of our Designers hold stock and we are able to “live pick” that stock so that you can have the dress you want in the size that you need. Again, our amazing onsite Seamstresses will get you Aisle ready in no time!

Whatever your timeframe, we’ll always do our very best to make sure you have THE most amazing time with us and that your journey from Miss to Mrs will be full of lots of happiness and memories for you to treasure.

Some say you need to visit lots of different shops to find the perfect dress, our brides say you don’t. That’s because we’ve got over 400 individual styles to suit every shape, size & style and budget plus an unrivalled service too!

When you buy from us you get to meet over 1400 other brides who have bought from us, all of which, will sing our praises and support you too on your journey. It’s totally unique, there’s nowhere else like It.

We really would love to meet you, we really would love YOU to be the next TDR Bride; And we promise you’ll have the best time and we will care for you and look out for you, every single step of the way, “With TDR you’re In Safe Hands”
