Just bought my wedding dress even though our wedding isn’t till September 2014! I went to the bridal shop and look at them and found my dream dress (Alfred Angelo Style 214 Rapunzel) only to find it will be getting discontinued within the next couple of weeks…I counldn’t stand the chance of missing out on it so I bought it!
Any other brides who have purchased their dress with so much time in advanced???Or have purchased and Alfred Angelo Disney Fairytale Collection dress?

- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
I bought my dress in late April 2013. It was nice to get one thing crossed off the list. However, it’s not an Alfred Angelo. 🙂
One thing I did learn though is that a consultant may ask the manager in front of the client when a dress would get discontinued. They said they’d discontinue my dress end of May. Er, it IS still on the website.

@Minniemousie1: I purchased my gown what I thought was going to be a year in advance. We eloped 9 months after I purchased the gown, but I never had a second thought! And I know you won’t either. That dress is to die for!

I am also getting married in September 2014!
I have been ready to purchase a dress since June but have been waiting because I haven’t found quite what I am looking for. I really don’t think it’s early at all. I think it’s amazing that you have found what you love and can imagine it to be such a relief! I think your dress is gorgeous!
Way to go! 🙂

I am getting married in October 2014 and purchased my dress about 2 weeks ago…but it won’t be coming in until the end of November/December…and I basically bought it without trying it on! I think a year in advance having it in-hand is pretty good. Gives you time for alterations and what not. 🙂

@simondress: I have been able to find a good selection of dresses but they are just not quite what I wanted. I do find (and I’m not sure if it’s just the samples) that a lot of dresses are quite disappointing in person! In photos they look amazing but in person they do not have the wow factor.
Besides Alfred Angelo I have been looking into Allure, Mikaella, Stella York, Essence of Australia, Casablanca. Hope that helps!

@simondress: I’m not sure that I could do it myself. I appreciate the experience of trying on dresses, feeling them, looking at the stitching closeup. But as long as you find a reputible website and are able to return it if it doesn’t work out, I can’t see why not.
