Yeah I had that too, my wedding isn’t till summer 2016 but we got engaged in January and I started dress shopping in March and had my dress by May! Have you got any picks of it or you in it?

Just goggle imaged it and there are a few brides in it for you to look at there. It’s lovely, I particularly like the top fitted section

Mrswain:  Normally I’d say “you’re getting married in 2016? That’s far too much time for you to change your mind and waste your money!”.

But in this case, I think it’s probably an idea. Only because I think that’s an older style, so there’s a danger it will be discontinued within the next year or so. You might not have much longer to get it, who knows? 

Gorgeous dress BTW!

Why don’t you consider getting it second hand? That way you vet the dress, and cheaper!

I’ve had this too! Mine is February 2016. The first place, I told her I wasn’t looking to buy for a couple of more months, but I loved the dress and wanted to try it on. The second place asked when my date was and said “oh you have plenty of time” and wouldn’t even let me try on and told me I could just look around.  I found a dress I wanted to try on and it’s the only place in the state that has it, but Im really not impressed with the salon and don’t want to give them my business.

Mrswain:  that’s exactly why I got mine so early, mine is an autumn 2013 dress that has now disappeared off the website of the manufacture I was lucky to pick up an unworn sample dress for £400 when it should be £1600! I went in about five bridal shops I tried on about 25 dresses some were lovely and understanding and some were dismissive. I just ignored them and focused on me an enthusiastic assistant makes the experience special though. In the end I tried on a sottero Midgley dress called christelle which has a dramatic bottom but wasn’t mermaid enough for me as the skirt started mid hip instead of under the bum. I knew I wanted a dramatic bottom as I was torn between ball gown and fitted mermaid style. I put a picture of it on on your other post. I went on google images to look at other styles by sottero Midgley and found my way to ebay a Bridal Barn which is a bridal shop run out of a home who has loads of ex sample dresses, customer returns and almost all are unworn with tags. I knew trends were changing to lace and illusion backs which aren’t me so has to get in early to have what I wanted.

Mrswain:  If they wouldn’t allow you to take photos, this would be a red flag for me. It’s just something I’ve never understood about businesses, and if you’re about to make a big purchase like a wedding dress, you should be allowed to take a photo of it. I would honestly look somewhere else. Maybe you could do a fun day or weekend trip to another area that stocks the dress since you’d have to drive a little farther. Or you could take stock photos of it to another boutique and try to find something very similar.
