I don’t think it is ever too soon to try on dresses! Especially if you are like and indecisive….I should have started earlier!

I’m an October 2010 bride as well.  Some people are going to tell you to wait, but I’m going to look in about a month.  Depending on the designer, dresses can take up to 5 months to come in, and then you also have to allow time for alterations.  Just take into account your shopping style?  Are you an impulse buyer?  Are you generally happy with purchases you’ve made?  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with starting to look.

I got engaged in decmber of 08 and started looking in january and my wedding is not until June 2010.  I would actually reccomend you try on dresses already because you will get a better idea of what you are really looking for.  I went in thinking I liked the mermaid style and it took me a few months to realize that it wasnt for me.  Just go in with an open mind thinking that your not going to buy and if you happen to stumble upon a dress that you reallly love then go for it.

I’d say it’s not too soon to start looking.  I started looking for my dress about 9 months ahead of time, and I had people tell me that I was “too late” to be looking!  Just keep an open mind and make sure you’re really in love before you commit to a dress.

I would have rather started sooner than later.  Yes, the styles will change next year, but at least you have something in mind, plus if you find the “one” new styles don’t really matter.

It’s never too soon to start looking…that’s all the fun of being engaged!! I would warn you though to reallllly take your time and not feel pressured to buy because of a sale, a dress being discontinued, or anything else that the sales consultant may tell you.

I went shopping “just for fun” the week after I got engaged and was talked into buying a dress that now I am trying to sell (it hasn’t even come in yet). Just be sure that you love the gown and that you have taken time to really think about what you want Smile I am usually a VERY decisive person, but with the wedding dress it is so different. Let us know what you find!!!!!

@ismini:  Yay for month and date twins!  We’re getting married right outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

Yup, I agree with everyone in saying that it’s never too early to start trying on dresses.  However, I would caution buying and committing to a dress this early.  You have plenty of time so don’t rush the busying process, many a dress regret starts that way.

Enjoy the experience and take lots of pictures!!!

I am an October 2010 bride too! I went dress shopping the second weekend in July for the first time and I ended up buying a dress the same day! I went to three different store in one day and could not stop thinking abou one of the dresses I tried at the first  store so I went back and bought it. I wasn’t even thinking about buying a dress that day but none of the other dresses I tried on even came close. I would say, just have an open mind and if you find something you LOVE…don’t be afraid to buy it. Oh! and…HAVE FUN! 🙂

I bought my dress a month after getting engaged, and the wedding isn’t until the end of October.  I say go whenever you feel like it!  It’s fun and you never know when you’ll find the one!!
