- Wedding: May 2014
So I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere with not even a David’s Bridal! (The closest one is about 2hrs away.) I am getting married in Houston, TX and my step mom told me she really really wants to buy me my wedding dress which is so incredibly sweet of her. Since I am having a wedding so far away I am thinking I need to probably buy the dress while I am there and then just let me family take care of picking it up and keeping it safe until I need alterations. My question is.. when do I start looking? I will only be in Houston 3 times before my wedding in May ’14 and I assume 2 of those I will need to utilize for alterations, so should I order when I go in December of this year or wait until end of May/Early June of 2013 to go look and order then? OR shoud I at least go look in December ’12 because if i dont find anything at least I can still try for May ’13, because really after that its not until December ’13 that I will be in Houton and then my wedding will be 5 months away. I dont think buying a dress where I live is an option, I would be all alone picking it out (I want my stepmom to be a part of it because shes buying the dress, as well as the rest of my family, its an especially hard time for me since I lost my mom when I was young) not to mention I would have to drive 2hrs to even go look at anything.
I need advice bad! Help me ladies, what would you do in this situation? I dont want to find a dress and then the new season come out and me want something else, but I really want to have enough time to take care of everything and have my family be a part of it all!
