@TashandWil:  hey date twin 🙂 I’m not dress shopping until mid-summer 2014. Between now and then I’m planning on having my venue (check), music (check), church (check), florist, decorator, and photographer.

I would definitely get a photographer next! A very important part of your wedding that you should figure out now – in fact you might be able to book them at their 2013 prices still and get a great deal! That’s what I did 🙂

The thing about dress shopping this early is that you fall in love with a dress you’d have to be willing to buy it and stop looking. If you fall in love with something but decide to wait to purchase, you might never find something you like as much and that dress could be discontinued in the mean time. On the other hand, if you buy the dress that you love right now then you have to be able to stop looking at dresses to ensure you don’t find something new you love even more. So while you can dress shop now you have to be careful. I’ve kept those two things in mind when I’ve gone dress shopping, but luckily I haven’t found anything I’ve lover too too much yet so it hasn’t been an issue thus far, but I know everytime I go I’m walking that line!

Also regarding dresses, after talking to a few salon owners it sounds like the time to look for summer 2015 weddings will be in June 2014. At that time all of the new fall 2014 dresses will come out, so at that point the selection will be what we have to work with. Waiting until December/January for the spring 2015 dresses will be cutting it super close. Just sharing this info, as after hearing this I’m planning to kick my dress shopping into over drive come July/August when I know that what’s out there is truly what I have to pick from!
