At first I tried it on about 5 times within the first month of getting it (Picked up in April)  I’m not touching it until after the new year.  Our wedding is in May so I had mine in my hands 13 months early.

Mine hung for just over a year.

I only put mine on for bridal portraits… or once when I was having a TERRIBLE day. :o)

I tried it on about 3 months before to see if I needed it hemmed with my shoes or if my shoes worked fine with the length.

I never tried mine on until I took it to the tailors!  Once I found the one, I didn’t want to be in it until the big day!

I would try mine on a lot if I could; it has a lace up back, and I just can’t do that myself! lol

I’ve had mine since last November…. Since then I’ve tried it on twice for 2 of my diff Bridesmaids and a few other times just for myself… I just did over the weekend actually… It was fun! i still havn’t found anyone that has my exact dress posted on this site or anywhere! I love it… I just wish it fit…. It’s still like 3 sizes too big & I can’t take it for alterations until January or February… Boo.. I can’t wait till it fits like a glove ๐Ÿ™‚ I was nervous about purchasing it soo soon; but I still haven’t had any regrets..!

Mine actually hung in the Costume shop where I work, so it got tried on A LOT!  But since my boss was doing my alterations, it was a wonderful excuse to try my beauty on as often as possible!

LOL…I left mine at the bridal store. I’m sure that I could not resist temptation. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope to leave it until the week of my wedding in April. First fitting in December.
