@NovaGrey:  Double check the return policy. Because it’s not a traditional dress (you know, order, wait 9 months, can’t return, etc), I say go for it. If your date is correct, it’s only a little more than a year to your wedding, I don’t think that’s “too soon” to look. If anything, if it’s NOT the one, you can return it ASAP and you’ll have more time to keep looking. I would go for it if the return policy let’s you retrn it for a full refund.

eTA: is it the silver feather one? that one is STUNNING.

I say wait.  There is nothing like going to a bridal salon and trying on dresses for the first time.  It’s a special experience!

I say wait too… I was in a similar situation. Before I went dress shopping I thought I knew that I FOR SURE wanted one of the really simple dresses on the JCrew bridal site (cut very similar to the one you like, but solid white). I would only be able to order online since they didn’t sell the dresses at my JCrew. I figured “what the heck, I’ll go dress shopping at my local salons before I go to the hassle of ordering online” and I ended up falling in love with and purchasing something MUCH more traditional… you never know what you may fall in love with!

I just purchased a Sue Wong today- if you know you REALLYYYYYYYYYYYYY want it, DO NOT WAIT. I say this not only because she’s affordable and her designs are one of a kind stunning, but because the dresses seem to be “limited edition ” aka you can’t just special order. As my salon told me today- when they’re gone, they’re gone and you literally cannot find them! I bought mine today and it literally does not exist for purchase online!!
