Everyones dresses look amazing! Do you all know what the standard is for when to get the dress? Unfortunately my weight fluctuates a lot so I am worried to get it too early.

@strawberryshortcake:  Thank you that’s so sweet of you to say!!  I want to mention, since you said you love tea length and lace/vintage style, try looking into Etsy or online stores like Dolly Couture or Unique Vintage, you will find more options and they are almost always customizable to your measurements.  I know I would not have found my perfect dress visiting boutiques!

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry:  I think 8-10 months? It depends on the designer how long it will take to come in. If your weight fluctuates I would order it big and plan on having it altered down if you are smaller. Theres nothing worse than having a dress be too small.

@Jezika:  Thanks!  Yeah to be honest, it’s about 3x what I was expecting to spend (I originally wanted to find a vintage 50’s/60’s wedding dress) but it was so worth it!!

Very nearly bought this lacey one yesterday, but decided to hold off and see what other dresses I find! So difficult once you like a couple of dresses!

@Jezika:  That one is really pretty! Its good that you’re planning on shopping around. August is still really far away and I would hate for you to have dress regret if you see something else in the next couple months.

@asscherlover:  Yes, you’re right. Plus it would be nice to have the fun of trying on more dresses (you don’t get to do this kind of thing everyday) without already having committed to one and potentially regretting it. Eek!

I ordered my dress in February. I live an ocean away from home/wedding location, so I ordered it there (in the states) bc it was cheaper and then I wont have to worry about shipping it or bringing it on a plane.

except mine wont have that brownish part. itll all be ivory (the color pictured). and it has POCKETS! so pumped.
