If you are in a wedding this spring, summer of fall or are getting married, plan ahead now.
Most bridal gowns are custom made, so allow six months. For bridesmaid dresses, expect them to take eight weeks to arrive at you dress shop. And the mother of the bride has even more options. So we ask Craig Strickland with Formal Envy in Fredericksburg what you might pay? Anywhere from $150 to $1500, depending on whether it is a bridesmaid gown or a wedding gown.
Price doesn't include alterations. But Strickland says they can even alter a dress you bought somewhere else.
Bridesmaid and mother of the bride gowns take about eight weeks to get into a dress shop. A custom wedding gown could take up to six months. Once you narrow down your dress options, then bring in friends and family to find "the one."
