    Beautiful dress!  I ordered my dress 14 months before the wedding and on my first and only shopping trip.   I had no dress regret. 

    If you absolutely love it, then go for it!

    @shamrock1228:  I bought mine 11 months before (and it only came in last week), so I really don’t think you’re way off. Besides, that dress is gorgeous! Do what makes you happy, but if you have doubts, you have time to mull it over.

    @shamrock1228:  I think that dress looks stunning on you. If you love it, I wouldn’t take the chance on the dress being discontinued.

    I love the lace top and the little bit of sparkle! Go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @shamrock1228:  I would wait. Dress prices go down when the new styles come out. My dress was originally $1300 last year, this year it is $830, and I bought it for $500 from someone who had bought it and then changed their mind. I see so many bees order dresses and then end up going with a different one… then they are stuck with two dresses and losing a bunch of money. Unless you plan on not looking at any more dresses ANYWHERE (magazines, WB, online) and money/budget is not a concern, do not buy it because you will see other dresses and have dress regret, and you will see the price go down.

    Other things to consider:

    your weight… do you think it will hold steady over the next 14 months?

    your venue and theme (if applicable)… are they set in stone?

    No, for two reasons:

    1. plenty of brides order their dresses long before the wedding
    2. you look a-mah-zing! I adore everything about that dress (including the sash), and it just looks incredible on you.

    Beautiful gown!!

    I don’t think it’s too early.  I”m about 13 months out and I just purchased my gown this weekend.  Only I came home with it because it’s discontinued and the sample/floor model was only a size bigger and in great condition.  

    So, I’m sitting here with a dress in my mother’s closet that will torment me for the next 13 months.  Ahhh!!

    That dress looks stunning on you! I don’t think its too early, I ordered my dress 14 months before wedding… it arrived 12 months before wedding (now at 4-ish months before wedding). I think its normal to experience some dress regret regardless of how close or far you buy from your date!! Stick with your gut!
