Actually...here was my thought process on the dress. I worked backwards...
My wedding is October 11...so, I need my bridal pictures DONE and back to me by September, so I can pick one, and have it blown up and framed for the reception.
Well, its WAYYY to hot to take Bridal pictures in Texas in June, July, August or September. My bridals are going to be taken outside, so doing them in those months is out of the question.
So after talking with my photographer, he said...we need to do your bridals in Early May. So..
In order to take my bridals in early May, my dress needs to be altered at the beginning of April, because sometimes your alterations can take 4 weeks.
Dresses take about 4 months to come in, on the average. So if you work backwards from April, which was when I needed my dress to be here...that meant I had to order my dress no later than December 1st
Luckily..I stumbled upon this one in October, and it was ordered in October!
So, to make a long story longer...just plan on your dress taking 4 months to get here, if it has to be ordered. Then keep in mind, it will still need alterations, and those can take up to another month to be completed
