So I’ve been dress shopping a few times, and I have a few dresses I really liked, and one I loved. I have been thinking it’s my dress, but am waiting to purchase it until 2 of my bridesmaids can come in town and see it.
BUT, I’m hearing of quite a few trunk shows with the new 2013 dresses coming to my area, and I’m wondering if I should wait to order my dress. I’m not getting married until June 2013, so I have plenty of time, and if the new 2013 dresses are coming into stores soon maybe I should wait so I can try some of those on. I love the dress I plan to order, but don’t want to get dress regret.
2013 brides, when are you ordering or looking for your dress?

Our wedding is in early March, 2013. I bought mine in February. It should arrive at my boutique in late August.

I’ve had my dress for some time, I got it at Brides Against Breast Cancer. I love it, and stopped looking after I found it.

I am in same boat as MrsElle. I bought mine back in December and definitely do not regret it. I got it for a great deal and can’t wait for it to arrive in August.
Personally, I think it depends on what type of person you are. When I hear of brides who change their colors/theme every week, I think they are crazy…but only because I am not like that at all.
It is really never too early. You can avoid rush fees and the stress of wondering if your dress will come in time. But, like you will hear from many others on this site, once you purchase your dress, do not continue looking with the intent of trying to find something better. Just remember why you love the dress you chose and be happy!

We are planning our wedding for July 2013. I would so love to go right now and start looking but I’m holding back. One cause I want to lose a little weight and be roughly at the size I want to be for the wedding when I look. And two because I really don’t want to find something now that i “love” and then see something in december that is just utterly to die for. So I am waiting til Decemberish. By then I’ll know where I am getting married and will have my sister’s in town for the holidays and they can come help me look.
Now this doesn’t stop me of course from browsing pictures and going oooo I really like that or oooo oh no. Haha. But maybe come august, I’ll rethink and start trying on. It’s just so exciting to think about

Our wedding is August 31, 2013, and I bought my dress is March, it should be here in Septemeber, but I won’t be altering it until 3 months before the wedding.
I also still have to buy all my accessories (veil, tiara, jewelry, sash, etc).

I’ve had my dress for about three weeks and I’m a March 2013 bride. I was looking on etsy, because I wanted vintage, and found the dream dress and did not want to risk losing it.

I bought mine a couple months ago and my wedding is in April 2013. I kind of wish I would have waited and tried more on (I only tried about 10). At the same time I love my dress and don’t think there’s another one I would’ve loved more.

Firstly, Hi to all fellow 2013 brides! Yay!
I am getting married in September 2013 and I found my dress a few weeks ago. I have put a deposit on it but won’t be ordering it until October (on their reccommendation) as it will only take 4 months to make. I agree with PP that it depends on the person you are but I also think that when you find “the dress” you just know.
