Has he asked you? Because if you’ve already done all that, you might as well call yourselves engaged. I didn’t do ANY of that until probably a YEAR after the engagement. lol. So, yea, go ahead and buy it if you love it.

I would consider you guys engaged, so I would say that yes, if you love the dress and you know it’s the one, buy it.

But I would alsi advise you try on more dresses just to be sure. I made a hasty dress decision and ended up not liking it in the end. You only get to try on bridal gowns once, you might as well soak it all up! 🙂

Buy it! I was engaged before my ring was finished. All of this “officially engaged” stuff is BS anyway. Snatch up that dress on sale, girl.

Since you guys already have the venue secured I would say go ahead and buy the dress, especially since it’s on sale!

Is October 2010 when your wedding is?  If so then absolutely start looking for dresses!  They can take 4 to 6 months to come in, so you want to give yourself plenty of time to look!

If you’ve set a date and started planning, I’d say you’re very much engaged!  A ring doesn’t make an engagement.

If you love the dress and you’ve tried it on, go for it.

Doooo it! I’m in the same boat and I’m just debating looking, but I think if I found the one for a great price I’d go for it!

I’d say go for it! I bought my dress while I knew he had the ring, but hadn’t proposed yet. Then when he proposed (six months later! jeez, what a slacker, lol), we set an engagement of a year, so I had all this time, and even tho I’d bought the dress (on sale) and tried a bunch on, I still went around to other salons and tried dresses on. Turns out the sale happened again the next year, so I needn’t have jumped the gun. I even had second thoughts, and the bridal salon, Pricscilla of Boston, was nice enough to tell me I COULD change to another dress without losing my deposit. Ended up sticking with the first one.
