Ok, so im pretty sure that I have found the dress I want to wear for our wedding… problem is, we havnt even set a date yet… and its an etsy dress so if i do buy it I will be bying it blind so to speak.. but… I reeealllly want to buy it now.. its exactly what i have been looking for!
Has anyone else done this too and did the gamble pay off for them or did you end up trying it on, hating it and having to find another dress?

I bought my dress already. We dont have the venue picked out, but we do have a rough date. In my defence though, I didnt go out intending to get a dress.
I reccomend at least going and trying on dresses before you purchase one offline. I know from experience that what you think will look good on you and what does in fact look good on you arent always the same.

I actually had put a deposit down on one dress before we had a venue picked out, but wound up with something totally different once our venue was set (beach). I would recommend getting the venue picked at least. The season/date will kind of play a part, but if you know that’s the dress that you want, then go for it!
Have you tried on dresses with a similar shape/style before? I would also urge you to do that. I had my heart set on a huge, princess ballgown and wound up with a super simple mermaid gown being my dream dress.

Unless you think its going to be a very long engagement, I don’t think its a problem. 🙂

I would pick the date/venue first. Your vision for the wedding might change once you see where it will be
