First, your dress is absolutely beautiful!

I didn’t find mine quite as early but after we got engaged I looked at pictures online for almost a year since I knew it was too early to buy a dress.  I found one I loved online more than anything and nothing seemed to compare.  Finally I found my dress at a store and I loved it the moment I put it on.  After it finally came in I went and looked at it in my closet every day.

I love the back! I want to see pictures of you in it.

I didn’t really look at pictures much online. I had a sort of vague idea of what I might like. I ended up buying my dress really early, but just because it was one of those right time/place/dress/price things. My mom and FMIL were both there, and it was the only time they would ever go shopping with me. It was perfect.

Before I got engaged i had ideas of elements I wanted in my dress, but I knew I just kind of wanted to get in there and see what everything looked like on. I tried tons of different styles, just to see if a style I didn’t think of would look good when it was on my body. I had pictures of several dresses that I LOVED. One had a lot of lace appliques at the bottom and a structured top, but the store didn’t have that exact dress, however they had a similar one. I really loved it but it was so heavy and I have a long day ahead of me so I vetoed it. After trying on tons of other dresses I eventually ended up with my dream dress (although I didn’t know it until I had it on). It had almost every element that I wanted in a dress, plus some that I didn’t expect! It’s great to do research because it definitely helps narrow down the millions of styles, but you never know what you will end up with!
