no.  I’ve had my dress hanging in the closet since last July (2011).  I try it on occasionally. . . I dance around in it.

My first fitting isn’t until late August.

no dress regret – your dress is gorgeous!

My bridal salon wanted to keep it after it came in and I tried it on. As an afterthought she offered to let me take it if I wanted. I was trying to chalk it up to the fact that it’ll be safer there–they keep them in a fireproof safe and are insured, afterall, but I really felt like they thought I was going to take it home and then call them, damage the dress, and then call them and blame them. Although there was a snag in the train fabric when she opened the garment bag, so maybe they wanted to try to fix that first?  I also don’t have to worry about playing around in it or Fiance peeking.

Hmmmm… I think I’ll be ordering my dress this weekend!! So that means it will come in almost a year in advance so I’m not sure what I’ll do. As much as I’d like to bring it home, I’d worry… At least if anything happens to it at the salon they are responsible to fix it.

I got my dress today, I was going to sew my own, but this dress jumped out at me and I wanted it so badly my SO bought it for me, (yes, we were shopping at second hand stores this morning) so now it’s hanging in the closet and I am waiting for a garment bag to put the dress in so it won’t get ruined. I am thinking of a spring wedding. April or May. (next year)
