When did you begin the search for your dress? And how long did it take to find “the one”? Did you come in under or over budget, or right on target?
I’ve been engaged for nearly three months now and have yet to try on a dress. Granted there has been a lot of stuff in my personal life going on, so the thought of dress shopping just feels overwhelming.

Got engaged beg of Sept… went dress shopping beg of Oct. I bought like the 8th dress I tried on – first and only store. I spent what I was expecting to spend – hopefully the alterations won’t add too much!
My advice: Take your time, and don’t buy the first day EVEN if you know that’s the one you’ll choose! Oh, and don’t look at dresses after you order yours 😉

I went dress shopping 13 months before the wedding, went to a bunch of shops over the course of a week and picked my dress that week. I stayed right on budget. I’ve never doubted my decision but I wouldn’t recommend shopping as early as I did.
