Amelishan Bridal recommends that bridal gowns be purchased nine to twelve months before your wedding date. This will allow the time to order your gown without a rush and the needed time for alterations. Depending on where your alterations are done, some seamstresses need two to five months to complete alterations. Amelishan Bridal recommends that bridesmaid's dresses, mother's dresses, and social occasion dresses be purchased at least 6 months prior to the wedding or event date. This timeframe will allow the dresses to come in without a rush fee. This also allows the proper time for alterations as well. Amelishan Bridal carries multiple social occasion dresses and mothers dresses in store ready to be purchased off of the rack. With over 1000 dresses in store, you are bound to find the perfect dress!
