I found my dress about two weeks ago, although I wanted to visit one last place at Van Cleve tomorrow before finalizing my decision on what I believe to be “the one”! I’m getting married next June and from what I’ve heard 1 year is not too early. As long as your weight is pretty consistent you would be fine. I’ve been told that the ones that tie in the back are great, b/c no matter if you gain or lose weight it should fit great. Hope this helps!

OMG, the wait to start dress shopping has been killing me too!  I’m actually going to start looking next month because my mom will be in town then, but I probably won’t order until later in the fall. Of course, if I find “the one” then I’ll probably go ahead and order earlier than that, but I’m SUPER indecisive and my mind keeps changing about what I want, so we’ll see.

Have fun on your first shopping trip!

I’m Oct 2011 and have found and bought mine. It was the first dress I loved and cried over, and while I found others I liked, this first one was The One. I know it’s early…but I’m impulsive! Here’s hoping I don’t change my mind. It should be in in August!

I found my gown in November of 2009, and we are getting married in March of 2011. That was 16 months prior to our wedding. Right now it is hanging in my closet waiting for me 🙂

I’m not an August 2011 bride, but I wanted to say that I started looking more than a year out from my wedding. Go for it!

I’m June 2012 and already found mine! 

I was a little worried that I’d be tempted to look, but it’s just made me feel so laid-back about wedding planning. Everything is falling into place and it’s lovely having my dress in our closet, waiting to be worn!

My wedding is September 2011 and i found my dress two weeks ago. I had been looking for almost 3 months and when i saw the dress i picked, i just knew it was “the one.” i have n regrets even though i still like to look around on wedsites to see other dresses, but my dress fits me like a glove and looks ravashing. I’m not getting it fitted until may or june of next year. you’ll be fine!

Hi guys, I found THE DRESS yesterday!  To cut a long story short I found it on my first shopping trip a few months ago and have looked at what feels like a zillion dresses ever since.  The reason being “the dress” was over my budget.  I had a dream about it the other night (haha I make myself laugh) and phoned the lady at the shop, and negotiated a £400 discount to buy the one off the peg and am paying the deposit next week! I was so happy.  Its beautiful.  A Maggie Sottero 2010 collection! A massive weight has been lifted! 🙂

Ahh!  You guys make me feel so much better.  I’m going dress shopping this weekend.  Everyone is like-but you aren’t getting married for almost 2 years!  Yeah, well, so what!  I want to do everything at my pace and not feel rushed!  So, if I find the one this weekend, so be it!

Did you find your dress at priscilla of boston? I got my dress there too and I bought it more than a year before my wedding. Good thing to because it took 8 months for my dress to come in. So shopping early is sometimes a good thing!
