We always tell girls that the best time to start shopping for a prom dress is January. I know this seems ridiculously early and you might be thinking, “I don’t have my prom until May! March is plenty of time to start looking!” but when it comes to shopping for your red carpet dresses the early bird catches the bedazzled worm.


Beginning your search in January may seem premature but retailers will already be stocking their racks by then. Starting early will allow you to fully sift through the myriad of options and give you plenty of time to make up your mind. So whether you’re caught between purple or red or satin or chiffon you don’t have to rush into a decision and regret your choice later!


If you happen to choose a very popular style you will need to order your dress early to ensure you get the color or size you want in time for your event.  The last thing you want would be for your formal dresses to get back ordered for months! Receiving your dress ahead of time will also make any alterations less stressful, since some tailors need at least a few weeks in advance to make sure your dress fits perfectly.

Most stores will guarantee not to sell the same dress to another girl attending the same prom and shopping early will make sure you get your dream dress on lock down.

The final perk to early prom shopping is that you get to bypass the last minute rush the rest of the girls have to deal with because they waited! 


Now that we’ve given you the best reasons to shop early you should take a minute to click through our brand new prom dresses, glamour and cocktail collections for 2014.
