Dress regret happens when you continue to look at dresses after you’ve already chosen one. I found my dress 2 months after engagement and 16 months before the wedding. I went to a trunk show with my mom and sister just to see what wedding dresses were even like (never looked online or read bridal magazines) two hours later and 9 dresses later, I found one I loved and bought it. Then I spent the next 16months putting my time and energy into actual planning and didn’t think about my dress un til it came in 7 months later.

Since you love the dress and have the time, maybe you can start glancing around to see if you can find a  deal on a preowed one or great sale?

sweetpea1002:  I’m also not getting married until next summer, but went to my first fitting yesterday. I went in thinking I was going to try on this dress I’ve had my eye on and buy it – one and done. That did not happen! lol Thanks to my family’s differing tastes, their less than enthused reaction to my favorite dress made me completely second guess my choice. 

I like having plenty of time to shop around and see what’s out there, and maybe even catch some good sales. It also helped to go see what I’m 99% sure will be our venue after dress shopping. Because now I can picture myself in the dress in the church and decide if that look will work for the environment. The dress that my family loved wouldn’t really look right in that setting, in my opinion. Do you have your venue picked out?

Honestly, I don’t think it can hurt to wait since you’re uncertain if something better will come along. I’d hate to see you order the dress now then later on down the line theres a dress regret post. You know your timeline, so give yourself time to think about it and place the order when you’re more certain. Best of luck! I didn’t realize how challenging dress shopping would be! It’s a big decision.
