Do it!  I have been to 3 dress shops already, just because it’s fun and I wanted to see what is out there.  I even went by myself to one, which was nice.  I will purchase when my mom comes to visit in a few weeks. 

You only get one opportunity in your life to go in and try on on all the pretty dresses… I say make the most of it!

Yeah, I’d do it!  I started trying them on when I was like 15 months out (loooooong engagement, lol). 😀

I would just do it. I just ordered my dress on 3/15, and my wedding isn’t until  next December,  2015. I had so much fun!

Just do it.  I wanted 10 months to try on dresses (out of a 2 year engagement) and I wished that I had just done it sooner.  I kept bookmarking more and more dresses during those 10 months and I was getting so confused about what I wanted.  Go to a local shop wtih a friend and try out some different sillouhettes.  It can help you focus more before going shopping with your family 🙂

Do it when you are ready. Its your day and your dress. And really, you dont have a ton of time. Most dresses have to be ordered 6 months in advance. So really leaves you 8 months 🙂

linsical:  I would not wait too long if I were you. I got engaged last April and bought my gown mid-June. They only finished making it in February 2014!!!! If I had waited any longer I probably would have been screwed.

I am also getting married in May next year. I started looking at dresses in October and last friday I went with my best friend and fiancee and tried some dresses. I can say that I really loved looking at dresses but after a while I just wanted to find one and so I did. It was something completely different from what I thought that I wanted so my tip is to try lots of different shapes!
