I had this discussion with my Fiance before he was my FI! He said go for it if I loved it, since who doesn’t love a bargain and it will get used anyway?

I wouldn’t buy it without asking my partner though… It might weird him out otherwise!

Go for it. Maybe ask to keep it at your parents/ sibling/ best friends house so you don’t have urge to show it to him! 

I’d love to see a photo

watergirl569:  Buy it and hide it from him, dont ever tell him youve already bought the dress. 🙂 Thats a crazy good deal, and you wont find it again, so go for it. But if it werent such a good deal, i’d say this is a little weird.

Well if he is okay with it, then buy it! Why are you asking us, you need to already be buying it now!

I wouldn’t. But obviously according to responses I am in the minority.

I would not purchase it prior to being officially engaged.

I wouldn’t do it, just because my wedding plans have already changed so many times in the course of planning. How do you know that it will be appropriate for the wedding date/venue/style you end up with? I’m also a tad superstitious, though, so I would never buy a dress before being officially engaged, anyway.

If you are 100% sure (of the dress) I say go for it!  I waited until the last minute to go dress shopping, and a few months later decided I no longer loved the dress, but I am a very indecisive person.

I love that dress!

However, I probably wouldn’t purchase one before being engaged, especially if my wedding was two years away or so. Tastes and styles change and you may find you have dress regret. To echo a PP, you don’t know your venue, date, or anything of that nature. Just wait if you can be patient 🙂
