    I bought a dress about 10 mths bfr the date, regretted it and changed my mind, so I ended up selling the dress  on a wedsite, it took about 2 months to find a buyer and then I went a bought another dress. I am so in love with my new dress that I didnt even want to leave it with the seamstress and when i have it on I dont want to take it off, so Im really happy I didnt settle.

    Dress #1 bought 1 year in advance- I love it but not sure if its what I want

    Dress # bought 1 year in advance- I love it but it doesnt fit the new venue

    (mind you these dresses were bought before my brother was killed and before we pushed our date back from October 2012 to June 2013.

    Dress #3 I havent received yet but its the dress of my dreams and I won it in a contest.

    Bought Dress #1 10 months before wedding. It was cheap and lovely but didn’t fit the wedding. 

    Deposit on dress #2 8 months before the wedding. Thought it could be the one and felt pressure and then canceled. 

    Deposit on dress #3 THE ONE 8 months before the wedding. I knew I had to stick with what I had settled on in my mind. There is no convincing you love a dress when you don’t (just like the guy).
