    Where’s the option for ALREADY! Hahaha Mine is May 2012, and I’ve already ordered, paid, tried it on, and took it home.

    If you’re really worried about dress regret I would wait until June. You will still have plenty of time to get your dress in before your wedding. I’m getting married in June 2012 and I’m not even thinking about wedding dresses yet.

    Ordered and it’s already in! 🙂 The place I bought it at stores it, so it’s not in my possession, but I’m in LOVE with it and have absolutely no regrets.

    I’m ordering mine from FrockFollies (over in the UK) but it’s not a “Traditional” gown.  More fantasy-ish, which is what we soooo want.  I’ve got a vintage gown that will be altered for photos, but I’m NOT wearing it for the wedding.  (It was a gift and since I’ve got it, I at least want to have it for some good photos, lol).

    If you know you’ll be looking at gowns in June, you’d be better off waiting.  That way, there won’t be ANY regrets!

    I am also aiming for a July 2012 date. I am tempted to shop now, but I know I will just keep obsessing and looking at gowns for months to follow. So I think you should wait until you get one more season to choose from. 9 mos is plenty of time…even if there is a delay or something.

    My wedding is May 19, 2012. I bought my dress last August.

    EDIT: …and it’s still not here. Might keep that in mind if you’re planning on waiting for the fall dresses. If I was having to scramble to get alterations done for a March 2011 wedding, I’d be in a world of hurt.

      My wedding is in June 2012. I have found a dress that I absolutely, positively love (it’s a Maggie Sottero). I am worried that they will discontinue the dress. I haven’t officially gone and tried any on yet, but I’m thinking about going for the first time in between March and June.

    Our wedding date is August 24 2012, and I won’t be shopping for the dress until around spring time. I know how indecisive I am, so I don’t want to start too early!
