So I went dress shopping today for the first time. It technically wasn’t dress “shopping” because I did not have a single intention of buying or even finding a dress, since my wedding is 13 months away. I was back home so my mom and MOH thought it would be fun to go try on some dresses. Well I found a dress… I tried it on and of course I loved it, my mom loved it, my best friend was crying she loved it so much. Plus it was on sale (I went to DB) and was only $240, to which my mom told me I would be a complete idiot if I didn’t buy it. We ended up getting it, and I literally cannot believe I bought a dress my first time dress shopping over a year away!!!….. Is this completely stupid, or is a year not too early? I am not the type of person who will see another dress and change my mind and have dress regret (at least I hope I am not…every time I look at the pictures I fall in love with it again). Plus I KNOW I won’t find one that looks so good on me and has everything I wanted.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my baby! It didn’t come with the sash, but I think it looks a million times better with it. Also, you can’t see in the picture but it is actually covered with little sewn-in dots.

I’ve never tried doing this on my phone so the pics weren’t uploading.

Love that dress on you! It’s beautiful. Don’t worry about buying it early. I actually did the exact same thing, and I love my dress more each time I see it. Just think of it as crossing a major thing off the list. You got a great dress, and at a steal to boot! (But maybe do yourself a favor and avoid the dress threads from this point forward. Dress regret is contagious around here! :))

So gorgeous!! Don’t worry about buying it early – I bought mine 14 months early and I have not had a smidge of dress regret. I hadn’t even heard of dress regret until I joined the Bee!
Also, even if you do change your mind it was only $240 (an AMAZING deal) so it wouldn’t be a huge loss.

Beautiful dress!! I think it would look amazing with a beaded/crystal sash, add a little bling to mix it up! And what a steal at only $240!

Girl, I have you beat! I bought the dress at the first store I walked into, 15 months before the wedding!
It just came in on Friday and I get to try MY dress on (not the sample… that still gets me so giddy) on Saturday, which also happens to be my bday. Happy bday to me and congrats to you!!
