Brides Magazine recommends ordering your gown a year before your wedding. At Facchianos we recommend 9-12 months before so you do not have to rush, this is supposed to be an enjoyable time of your life with no stress. Most of the designer gowns take 5-6 months for delivery, alterations can take between 6-8 weeks for fittings and altering. If you want a formal bridal sitting most photographers want to do that between 1-2 months before, so you have to have alterations completed by then. Most brides do not know all the details and do not always leave the allotted time. We can do weddings quicker if you plan on purchasing off the rack, or if you want to have the gown rushed, then rushing is additional.
You can lose weight, but we still recommend ordering 9-12 months before. 90% of brides need some sort of alterations and any experienced wedding seamstress will tell you it is easy to take in a gown, and it will look just perfect, even taking it down multiple sizes. We DO NOT recommend ordering a smaller size because there is a lot of stress in wedding planning and trying to fit into a smaller gown will just add to your stress. It is far more expensive to let out a gown or add panels so it is best just to order it in your present size and have alterations if needed.
Alterations are scheduled with our alterations person, off site. You will need to bring your shoes and any undergarments you will need to wear under your gown. If you do not have them you may purchase some of those here, we have bra cups, body shapers, and crinolins.
Facchianos recommends ordering bridesmaids at least five months prior to your wedding. Bridesmaids do need to be measured professionally and 90% of them will need alterations, manufacturers do not offer custom sizing. Facchianos always takes measurement to determine size in order to minimize alterations.
We do, but this is a service exclusively for our Facchianos brides. They are booked out well in advance and it is the single most requested service we have here.
