@Shoppe:  I’m an August 2013 bride and I bought my dress in January (awesome deal on a used dress). I would make your final decision on which dress you want, and then keep an eye out for sales in the next couple months just in case you can save some money. I don’t know that there will be a big price difference unless there is a sample sale or you decide to find it used.

@Shoppe:  I wouldn’t take the free veil because the simple ones are super cheap/easy to make (like under $20). And the ones that are on etsy that have lace/beading that are really nice.

I bought mine a year before my wedding. I think most dresses take around 5 or 6 months (or more, or less, depending on the designer). Make sure you leave time for alterations too 🙂

Yeah, it’s like 6 months for the dress to come in and then 2 months for alterations. So you have less time than you think you do.
