I have previously posted about my search for the perfect dress: a pushy friend, an impulsive internet purchase, and just my total overwhelment with the whole process. I took people’s advice and went shopping by myself and I think I found it!!! I first saw the dress on the once wed website and have been stalking it religiously. Once I put the dress on, I did not even want to try on any of the other dresses I brought into the fitting room. Now here is my problem….. My wedding isn’t till next april. Am I being too impulsive (again?) How early did you girls purchase your dresses? I don’t know if I can wait any longer; I am trying to set up the appointment ASAP for my grandmother and mil to come see it.

I think that once you find “the dress” you can get it…. BUT you HAVE TO STOP looking for dresses…
because really, it doesn’t matter HOW long you wait, if you keep looking for dresses you’re bound to find something else you think you’ll love. lol
I found my dress almost a yr ago and went ahead and ordered it. Yes I’ve seen other dresses on wonderful sites like this BUT in my mind/heart I am no longer looking & I still love my dress =)

@runsyellowlites: Oooh, you said it really well (also, I feel like everytime I post you’ve just posted. Sorry for bee-stalking you, i promise I don’t mean to!).
OP: I bought my dress in early August, and it’s going to take eight months (from August) to arrive. Sometimes designers take a crazy long time to get stuff in, so better earlier than later!

I agree with above post. you cant go looking after you purchase it. I say hold off on buying it and continue to shop around the dress will be there if you want it.

I wouldnt buy more than 9 months ahead. Because even if you intend to stop looking, you will still come on weddingbee or read wedding mags and make see something that you love more.

I bought my dress a little less than a year before my wedding date. I still love it and can’t wait to wear it on my big day!

I bought mine almost 22 months before the wedding. I have over a year to go, but I adore the dress. And sincerly believe no matter what I find, I like mine best.
