@LAB:  on my thread one bee said she got hers in about 6 weeks? other 3 months and some way longer i think your best bet is to call the bridal shops and see what the timelines are i called the ones i was interested in and got a idea of when i need to go

All of the shops I visited told me 6-8 months out is ideal. I think you are fine starting when you are.

Probably summer or early fall. I want to lose some more weight (already down 25 pounds) and I want to wait until summer so FSIL and FMIL can come, as they are a student and teacher, respectively. My own mother works year round but would take the day off.

I’m going to start looking in March. I’m holding myself back waiting til at least a year before, but I want to make sure I make a purchase by May/June. Just in case!

My wedding is set for 3/15/15 and while I’ve been casually browsing dresses online I haven’t decided when to actually go–glad I saw this thread as I was clueless that it should be that far in advance!

My BFF is moving 1000 miles away sooner than expected, and I really want her there, so I’ll actually be starting soon now. Not sure I’ll buy yet, but the first time I try on a wedding dress, she’ll be there

I actually ordered my dress in December, so excited. I know it seems early but gives me plenty of time to pay it off with a long layby. Everyone says ill change my mind between now and then however I found this dress 4 months ago and every now and then I go back and look at all the pics i took when i ordered and fall in love even more 🙂

I’m a march 2015 bride and I already have my dress. I’ve read every available article about dress storage so I’m not too worried

@nocleverbeepun:  I have my dress too but I don’t know anything about storage.. it’s just hanging in the closet. Do I need to be taking care of it better?!! I don’t want to pull it out in a few months and it’s ruined!
