What is ideal time to start bridal shopping?
Moha Atelier suggest following timeline for ordering Customised Garments made from scratch.
For ordering 3-5 Lehengas / Dresses
For ordering 6-12 Lehengas / Dresses
For ordering 20 or more Lehengas / Dresses
For URGENT Deliveries in 5-15 Days
In this case clients can explore read-to-wear collection and which can be delivered in 3-15 Days after making alterations for best fit with some minor customisations.
In general, keep following in mind
If you have a big family and want to go with specific clothing theme for 10 to 15+ close family members then plan wedding shopping at least 6 months before the wedding day. Coordination, selection, design customisations and trials should be kept in mind and all this will take it own time. It’s not like visiting a mall and picking up items instantly. It is going to be a very special moment and so preparations should be done in advance. Family members may be in different cities or countries, arrangements may be done for dispatching garments in different cities or countries for taking trials at home and ratification time (including courier time) to be kept in mind.
If you are planning to buy from shops (not designers) then start at least 1 month before the wedding date.
