Would it be totally silly of me to try on dresses and Im not even engaged yet? After lookin online at my dream Maggie Sottero dress, there is a local retailer who is an authorized seller of her dresses. I feel that we are very close to being engaged.
Or am I just jumping the gun wayyy to soon.

DONT DO IT. You’ll want your wedding planning time to be special. There will be plent of Maggie dresses out there for you to try on when it’s time. Hold your horses!

@Plum4getful: I’m going to say yes and refer to the ‘LAW OF ATTRACTION’ haha.
Not engaged yet, So what?!? Go for it!
If it makes you feel better-I opened a seperate savings account named ‘wedding and house’ because even though I’m not engaged, I’m ready to get married already!! LAW OF ATTRACTION! LOL!

Don’t do it. It will just make waiting that much harder!

I wouldn’t. I’d feel awkward because they always ask to see your ring and when the wedding is, etc. Also, I think it would take away from the excitement once you are engaged. Lastly, Maggie Sottero dresses aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They’ll be there to try on when you are finally engaged.

Salespeople at bridal salons work for comission, and while every appointment doesn’t result in a sale it really isn’t appropriate to waste their time.

I wouldn’t because I’m the sort of person who likes to delay gratification. When you are pre-engaged, keep it electronic (weddingbee, blogs, pinterest boards) and then when you are officially engaged go for the real thing. It’ll make it more special and fun.
Also, some people think it’s bad luck.

The first time I ever tried on a wedding dress was with my Mom and sisters! I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Just wait. The store most likely isn’t going anywhere and will be there in a few months when you do get engaged. I always find it weird when women do this kind of thing. I refused to even start a Pinterest board until I was officially engaged.

I always think of trying on dresses…I just imagine it would be so fun! BUT I haven’t done it because I want to feel the excitement of being engaged and the process of actually hunting for my dress. I’m waiting for the proposal first…then I can begin the excitement. It’s like an extra bonus after the engagement! 🙂

Thank you all for responding. And I do agree with you, not only is it a bit weird but I dont want to take away from the excitement of finding that one true dress prematurely. I really do appreciate all the responses. Thank you!
@kandykane1: My SO said just the other day that with all this “pre-planning” in my head that Im doing, we should be getting married about 6months later. I think I need to slow down jus a bit.
@cbgg: My dream boards of growing by the day
@Bazinga: I to agree with this. Hell if I do find that dress I would probably be tempted to buy it on the spot. What sense would that make and there isnt even a ring let alone a proposal.

@Plum4getful: we don’t want to be that crazy lady who is trying on wedding dresses without being engaged. Tempting… I know this too well.

@Plum4getful: I’d say that if you knew he had the ring already, then MAYBE it’s ok. But personally, I don’t like to count my chickens before they’re hatched, plus I don’t like when people get judgey and might think I’m silly for trying on dresses w/o being engaged. I had considered looking at some venues but I’d rather have the ring on my finger first!
