I am newly engaged, and my fiance’ and I have been discussing wedding dates. We originally thought that Feb 2015, would be perfect for us, and then we realized that his mom won’t be able to come if we had it then. We are now thinking summer 2015.
I have been looking at wedding dresses and bridemaid dresses. I found a few that I like. Since the wedding is so far away, I don’t think that I will be able to find these dresses(2013 collections) by the time that I am ready to purchase the dress(es). Should I order them soon, or wait and hope I can find similar styles?

@nerdybee: I’m a 2015 bride too and I already purchased my dress…I saw it at a trunk show and fell it love with it, plus not having to pay the taxes didn’t hurt either.
There’s certainly no harm in trying on the dresses that you like now but if you end up buying a dress, stop looking 🙂

I wouldn’t just wait, I would stop looking. 2015, esepcially summer, is a ways away. Who knows if the style you are drooling over now will be what you want then? Most girls with dress regret are the ones who bought supper early.

- Wedding: October 2017 - Baton Rouge, LA
I’m waiting til a year out from the wedding to START looking at dresses for myself. Once I find my dress, I’ll go Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping with my bridal party. Unless you’re getting something totally custom, it doesnt take THAT long for dresses to come in- if i were you, I would wait.

Since you have so much time, you have options
For example: scoping out a dress or designer you like and then waiting for a trunk show in your area (could get a deal!)
If you aren’t interested in buying a sample, or trying to get a deal on an “older” dress, I’d hold off on the dress hunt until closer to the summer.

I would wait until you’re closer to a year or so out. Your style will change, an I’m sure your wedding vision will change a million times. Take some time to think about it and really create a vision of your day before you rush into something

Okay. I definately understand where y’all are comming from. I will wait to further look at dresses until closer to the date. Everything I like now, from dresses, to color schemes, to decor, to well everything except for my fiance’ could change between now and then. Thanks for the advice!
