I bought my dress in March, and it came in, seriously, 2 weeks later. I’ve heard that David’s Bridal can sometakes take too long to get dresses in, so I was super shocked. I had gone in with my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor to look and get ideas of what shapes and fabrics I like, and I found one that I did not want to take off for anything!

I’ve gone dress shopping once and in the process got a free veil too worth $300!  It was back in March of 2011 before I was even engaged.  But I know what shape looks best and what I like and have narrowed it down to two dresses.  I’m not going to go dress shopping with family until Jan 2013 when I lose weight but at least I know which ones I want.

I got my dress months ago when I went to the Brides against Breast Cancer event in Boston.  I went with just the idea to try some on and ended up finding the one I love, so I got it on the spot.  I think when you find “the one” you should get it!

Our wedding is June 22, 2013 and I purchased my dress last weekend! Never too early, just make sure you’re 100% sure when you purchase and stop looking after. I work at a bridal salon, so I know that many girls have “dress regret.” Check out my dress and good luck planning everyone! http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/found-my-dress-30

I found and purchased my dress in December. It won’t get here until August though, which is perfect for my timeline.

I purchased my dress in February, and next month it will be paid in full.  I went out early though, because we were tossing around the idea of getting married this upcoming September, but thankfully we changed our minds and went for June of next year!  Whew!  I am worried I might have dress regret, but there are so many elements to my dress that I love, that I can just tweek it later if needed!

@Ej88:  I was just reading this blog and noticed that you’re in Scotland.

Where are you getting married in Scotland? We’re in Austin, TX but my fiance is Scottish and all his family is there. We’re getting married at St. Salvator Chapel in St. Andrews. I’m just excited to see another bride in the UK. I don’t see a lot of them on WeddingBee!

I purchased my dress three weeks ago. I’m in love with my dress and wish I didn’t have to wait a year to wear it.

I purchased my dress already! Before we got engaged I knew I wanted an Anne Namba because she creates gowns out of vintage wedding kimono (I grew up in Japan and my fiance is ethnically Japanese)… unfortunately her gowns cost in the thousands. Luckily I saw one on CRAIGSLIST! I swooped it up, had it altered and cleaned, and now it’s going to sit in my closet for the next year! Hopefully I won’t change shapes… I really haven’t since I was 15. Here are some photos!

@mskoloa:  Love your dress, its so pretty and unique!!

I put the deposit down on my dress on Wednesday! Its being custom made and the designer is going off just some pictures for a very elaborate skirt, so fingers crossed its exactly what I want!   They told me it will be 3-4 months before I come in to see the progress. I’m so anxious/nervous/excited!!!

I bought my dress three weeks ago at Church Street Bridal in Virginia. It’s the La Sposa Leira. Not a fabulous picture, but the best I had on my computer.

Bought a sample dress on Friday!  Was not intending to, but the sale was great, the dress was Watters and perfect!  May not even need alterations, waiting on shoes to be sure…now just one year to wait
