    Oops, I voted before I realized what you meant.  I thought you meant in person and not online.  I haven’t gone actual, physical shopping, but I look at wedding dresses and wedding stuff online ALL THE TIME!

    Honestly, I’ve just started getting into looking at wedding dresses, lol. It was rings for quite sometime, however. Not expecting an engagement for a couple of months at least, but since SO is a pastor, I find myself closely examining designs…how low-cut a dress is….etc. Im on break from classes at the moment so that makes the search even worse ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t look at wedding dresses because I find it hard to visulise them on myself so I get a bit bored ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus I’ve already decided that I’d like my dress made for me based on a dress in a series I like (nerd), so there isn’t a lot of point really.


    Engagement rings and wedding venues are a completely different story though… since I’ll be on a very tight budget I kind of look at it as a challenge and that really sucks me in XD (I dread to think how many rings I’ve analysed these past few months).

    @lawyerchick13:  I voted once a month, but in reality I think I looked at dresses maybe half a dozen times before we got engaged, and we were together for 5 years 4 months before we got engaged.

    I’ve done a quick online search to see if what I want actually exists somewhere, but since we plan on June 2015, and I plan on losing weight, anything I’d see now would be out of stock and hopefully way too big on me by then, so I’ve never looked seriously

    Oh yeah. I spent a lot of time looking at rings and dresses when I was waiting. Especially dresses. I make no apologies for it. I love fashion and I love looking a beautiful evening gowns. I just kept an open mind because I knew that the styles I liked may not necessarily look good on me and vice versa. Wedding Inspirasi was/is one of my favourite sites to perv at gowns.

    For a while I was doing it constantly, but I’ve calmed down a bit for the moment since I found a dress pattern that I like (I have a friend who sews).

    @lawyerchick13:  Ditto on your last sentence. I love any excuse to dress up. Lol I’m rather naughty because I would still look at dresses even when the Fiance (then the SO) was around, and he’d just look at me, shake his head and say “Normally I would find this scary but with you, it’s weirdly endearing”.

    I used to be obsessed with looking at rings but I eventually got a feeling that SO would pick out what he wants and my expectations might lead to disappointment. I found a picture of a ring I loved and sent it to his fb inbox and left the rest to him.

    After that started my dress obsession. At one point, I could look at a dress and name the designer. I’ve eventually decided to design my own but I still look at dresses for further inspiration. I love looking at designer dresses and even custom dresses here on wedding bee. I look at my design at least once a week and gush over it.

    Not much. I looked up dresses a few years ago. Now that I know a proposal is coming, not at all.

    Part of it is probably because I know I won’t have a wedding dress. We decided long ago that we are having a small, civil ceremony with immediate family or eloping. I’ll be wearing a casual, knee-length dress. Maybe white, maybe not.
