For the second time a dress I’ve fallen in love With has just been discontinued. My SO is going to propose in the next few months. I’ve found one for £350 reduced from £1250 online. I don’t quite have the wedding dress fund together yet but I’m not far off. It’s likely I’ll have the money around the time he proposes- so do I just bite the bullet and get it?!

well it’s up to you but i don’t think so, your tastes may change by the time he proposes let alone by the time you get married.

No! Just look at how many dress regret threads there are on here! Choosing and getting your dress is a great part of being engaged. Plus, if you can’t actually afford it, there is no harm in waiting. Dresses are discontinued/reduced all of the time. (And as PP said, wait until you’ve both set a date).

@Jacqui90: Normally I would agree but I’ve been waiting for 8 years for a proposal and this dress is the updated version of the original one I really liked 3 years ago … Good point to consider though- thanks!

@emmylouloubobells: wow 8 years, i feel for you! perhaps talk to him, see how he feels about it, and that is a great price for a dress!

no wait till it is official, that way it is more exciting and special. I would have never tried on any dresses before my Fiance proposed, bad luck or something IDK. I wouldnt do it. There are thousands and thousands of dresses, you wont have a hard time finding one…. whats the rush? Just wait

I wouldnt hun.
Before my FH proposed I would have imagined a very different wedding. But once we both spoke about it we realised we wanted something else and the dress that would have matched that wont match our current wedding!

I actually bought my dress before the proposal was official! Some people told me that my taste would change.. or that I might find something that I liked better.. At this point we are about 4 months out and I still love my dress.

I voted no because for me I know I would change my mind! Plus I would want the whole experience of shopping with my mum and bridesmaids for dresses!

I say no. I think it’s bad karma to try on a dress before you’re even engaged.

I’m sorry if this is not what you want to hear, but I am going to say what everyone else is thinking…
Let’s say you buy the dress, and then he doesn’t propose (maybe the economy is bad, he can’t afford it, he has other things in his life he wants to deal with first etc). Then, after all that, he FINDS THE DRESS hidden in your house.
He will think you are a crazy bunny boiler, and be very scared. This will not do good things for your relationship. Don’t buy the dress!!!!!
(Once more…sorry… I know this is not the answer you want… but it is the most honest answer I can give!)

Definitely not!! If you’ve liked this dress for a while and even liked a different version of the style, I think you should be able to find it or something similar when you do get engaged.

or take as many photos as you can of the dress and when you do get engaged, if you can’t find something you love as much, you can get something similar made 🙂

Honestly, no. All of the dresses I saved pre-engagement that I saw online looked completely different in person/on my body. Your tastes may change or suprise you when you go start trying on dresses.
