I don’t think it’s bad luck, just a bucket full of crazy lol.  Just wait!  I get the excitement and wanting it now, but it’s weird to buy a dress before you’re engaged.  Plus, you never know what might happen.  She may not be getting for three years or five.  She may not even like that dress then.

I think it could scare off the guy and could be really bad because what if they dont get engaged and she has that dress as a reminder of the failed relationship…. OR what if she buys the dress and then it doesnt work with the wedding she ends up having or has major dress regret it hink it is better to wait to buy the dress (plus there are new dresses coming out all the time her tastes might change)

ha…I bought mine before I was officially engaged.  I wasn’t planning on buying anything at the time but happened to find one that was awesome and I got some great deals through the store. Really the only reason I went to try any on was because of the deals I got from a bridal show (we were actually there as vendors ourselves).  Couldn’t help myself.

However, we did have a date we knew we were getting married on.

We (yes, WE!) bought my dress before getting engaged. It was a beautiful dress at a great price and it seemed silly to walk away just because it wasn’t “official”.

@emilygrace07:  HA!  +1

(I don’t think it’s crazy if you’ve already decided together to get married, but if you’re just “hoping”….yeah.)

Because of my faith in God, I am personally not superstitious.

But I find it pretty bold to buy a dress before an engagement…

I don’t beleive in bad luck…but I’d say that’s not good at all….first of all, even if you are sure you are on the track to getting engaged soon, that could take a year, maybe two to get hte rock….shoot, you may have totally changed your mind about what kind of dress you want to wear by then! Also, I think it’s just kinda silly….and I’d be worried what a guy would think if he finds a brand new wedding dress in my closet!

I agree, getting it before being engaged, too much could happen and she could end up wanting a totally different dress when the time comes. If wedding dresses were cheap it would be a non-issue, but those things cost a pretty penny. I do think its weird to want to get a dress before being engaged, but I don’t think she shouldn’t due to superstitous reasons, just that she may not like it when the time comes and that would be a waste of money.

I think the definition of superstition is something that isn’t real!! Personally, I don’t think it’d be bad luck to buy a wedding dress before being engaged, except for the fact that it could be really off-putting to her boyfriend! Some guys feel pressured just from looking a pictures of engagement rings – I can’t imagine how scary it’d be to have your girlfriend come home with a wedding dress!

@lomasbaby:  This just re-inforces the idea that a woman changes her mind like the wind! And just sends men batty! Hee Hee!
