People will think it’s quite early, but who cares – If ticking elements off the wedding checklist and having time to browse to make a proper decision earlier will put your mind at ease, why not? You’ll be feeling less stress as the date approaches.

I wouldn’t worry about it. My wedding is a few months after yours and I’ve already bought my dress and reserved the venue. I have a meeting with the photographer I’m interested in in just a few weeks too. Being prepared and planning in advance isn’t a bad thing 🙂

I went dress shopping in May and the dress didnt come in until January. 10 months is a typical timeline! I dont think you are too early at all! Why stress yourself out by putting things off?

I think you’re kind of wasting the dress consultants time. Plus, so many new dresses will come out in the next year, if you find something you like now, you might end up like one of the many on here with dress regret.

I would wait on the dress like the PP said, new dresses for 2017 will be coming out soon and if something catches your eye later on down the road you’ll be stuck with dress regret.

I think you should wait longer to do dress shopping what you think you like could change by your wedding date

I think you should go for it now. I started dress shopping a year before my wedding, and all the consultants told me “you need to decide NOW”, as it takes 10 months to be made, and then you also need time for maybe several rounds of alterations. I thought I had LOADS of time, but a year out is really the recommended time to be making a decision! I think if you start now you can relax and take your time with the process!
