How far away is your wedding?  I wouldn’t buy a dress if it were more than a year out because tastes might change, but any less than that I would go for it!  Beautiful dress!!!

If you’re wedding is truly in June, I would think it’s definitely not too early to order. (If anything, is say it’s getting too close for comfort!)

Your tag line says june 2017, so if you havent found a dress yet you should probably buy this one lol. Im guessing its further out, so it just depends how far.

is your wedding actually June 2017? If so that’s definitely not too early to be buying. When I was shopping for my August wedding a couple of weeks ago most shops said you usually need to purchase 6months out to allow time for the dress to be made and any alterations that might be needed. Even if yours isn’t made to order, getting a dress 3 months out is not at all early!

If you love it…you love it.  I don’t think it is too early to buy, UNLESS you havent tried on any other dresses.  Have you?   If you haven’t tried on at least like..5 dresses already…then I would say no, don’t buy yet.  If you already have tried on more than that…you’re good to go.  Yes it is a little early but if you know you love it, get it!

I bought my wedding dress a little less than two years out, so if you absolutely love this dress and know it’s the one and can stop yourself from continuing to shop after buying it, I say get it!

junebride026 : I bought my dress about 11 months before my wedding. Many dresses take at least 5 months to come in! I would go for it and order it. However, I am soooo wary of buying clothes online, let alone my wedding dress!

If your wedding is in June of 2017 I’m surprised you haven’t ordered yet seeing that it’s only 3 months away…

1.  Is June 2017 not your wedding date then?  Because that wouldn’t be too soon and you should go ahead.

2.  You are actually engaged, right?  Because if you aren’t, then this is really putting the cart before the horse and  you shouldn’t.

3.  Have you at least tried on dresses of a similar style and know you like that style and look good in it?

4.  Are you actively planning anything that would drastically alter your body shape between now and your wedding (i.e. bariatric surgery, dieting to lose a substantial amount of weight, trying to conceive and possibly being pregnant by the time your wedding date rolls around)?

Honestly, it’s only too soon if you aren’t sure (or aren’t actually engaged).  If you’re only buying it because you feel pressured, I probably wouldn’t though.  The fact of the matter is a lot of dresses are very similar and unless the sale is a discontinuation sale, most things will go on sale again.  These sorts of things go in cycles.  There’s a chance you will find something similar or find another dress you like just as much if you are really only feeling pressured by the sale.  If you decide this is absolutely the one, then I would recommend you stop looking at dresses altogether.  Usually that is the thing that bites people in the arse, making it too soon to purchase because then they second-guess themselves.  If you don’t think you can keep yourself from doing that, then hold off.

junebride026 :  ah yes, that clarifies things lol if you love it, buy it! I bought my dress 11 months before the wedding (and off the rack so I’ve actually had it all this time). I loved it then, loved it now, and can’t wait to wear it in June!
