Typically special gowns can take 4-5 months. Once they arrive, most will need at least a hem in alterations so please factor in this time as well.

There are only three colors that are traditionally out of the question, but remember, if the bride is on board with any of these, go for it! We’ve seen all of these done so tastefully, but the brides seal of approval is most important when flirting with these choices:

  2. Black, as it traditionally signifies mourning

  3. A true bright red as it takes the focus off of the bride and groom.

Unless the bride specified that she wanted you to match the bridesmaids - which is rare - typically a tint or shade of the color that they’re wearing looks really beautiful and complimentary in photos.
