Not at all! Most places will recommend you order your dress about 8-9 months from your wedding, and it will take you a little while to find *your* dress.  So, go ahead and start looking!  The new 2011 lines seem to all be coming out now, so your timing is good! I say go for it!

I’m slightly ahead of you and already found mine, so no I don’t think it’s too early ha. I say go for it. It may take longer than you think to find your perfect dress and then having to wait for it to come in can be a while plus alterations. I think its a good idea to get a jump start on it so it will be fun and not so stressful in the end.

start yesterday, lol!

I got engaged this past July and am getting married this coming July….I had one year to plan. I didn’t know how little time that was until now. I have 6 months. It is already too late to order certain dresses – they won’t arrive on time. So, if you want to have your pick from all the options, start now and narrow your choice down in the next two months… be sure to ask about ordering time!

best of luck and have fun finding her!

Nope! I think you’re good. I’m getting married June 2012 and I plan to start wedding dress shopping this summer. I think a year out is the perfect time to start shopping.
