I think it is okay to go to a store and let the sales people know that you are just looking at this point.  I can see why you’d want to get an idea of what style looks good on you.  I’d advise that you hold out on purchasing in case your taste changes in a year…you never know what dresses you may find in a year or so.

I don’t think it would be rude to shop without planning to buy… but I wouldn’t shop that early, from when I first got engaged to when I went dress shopping 3 months later (at 9 months out from the wedding) my vision of what I wanted changed.

Do you have a venue and basic style/theme picked out?  That will also effect your dress vision.

IMO nothing bad will happen if you put it off, sure you’ll be anxious but you won’t end up with a dress that a year later you don’t like.

And another 2 cents about dress shopping: If you’re on a budget, buy used.  Also, Kleinfelds sells my dress… for like $1500 from what I’ve heard, I got it locally for $1200.
