This year, we have been getting SO many inquiries for summer weddings in 2022. Summer is literally a few months away! Among the many challenges of planning a wedding in a few months, finding a wedding dress is top of the list!

Many brides don’t think about shopping for a wedding dress with a lot of lead time, but actually it typically takes 6-9 months to ship in a wedding dress after you order it (stores don’t carry inventory, only samples for trying!). Then it takes a couple months to make alterations.

If you are planning a last-minute wedding, one great option is to shop online for your wedding dress. I am a huge fan of the delicate and beautiful wedding dresses from BHLDN. They have some dresses that are in stock and ready to ship, which is perfect for all you last-minute brides! And you can shop from the comfort of your own home, then get it altered locally.

Check out some of my top picks below for whimsical floral wedding dresses, classic elegant wedding dresses and understated wedding dresses. Note that there are affiliate links below.
