Congrats on finding the perfect dress!

I would never say what you did was “wrong”. It was a risk though. It’s always a risk when a gal buys the dress becuase if things don’t turn out the way you want, you have this expensive piece of baggage on your hands….You might have to do some serious self-talk to keep yourself sane, as it might be harder not to get carried away with wedding stuff now that you have the dress.

If you absolutely without a doubt know that that dress is and will be THE dress, go for it!!! I am a firm believer of when you know, you know. Whether it be a pair of shoes, a car, you husband or a wedding dress!!! Just don’t start getting it sized until way closer to the actualy wedding 🙂

There are many posts about this hanging on the Boards. As someone who bought THE dress before the proposal- I say go for it. Every time I open my closet- I’m super happy with my decision as the dress was a limited edition at a steep discount. 

People will talk about risk- but there is a lot of risk in everything- so whats a few hundred dollars? If anything- it’s more risky to move in with a boyfriend, (which I have done as well.) I guess I would just tell your SO- just so it isn’t a huge surprise when he runs into it. 🙂

Hmmm why were you wedding dress shopping if you aren’t engaged? I think that you have a really (REALLY) high probability of being a two dress bride if you buy that dress. Also, similar wedding dress styles are carried by many different designers, so I really think you’ll be able to find it later on.

Also, there are really important things that have to be decided BEFORE you buy your dress: venue – how formal? Outdoors/indoors? These things play a huge factor in your decision. Is it local or destination? That may change your mind about what you may need to carry on a plane or not. You may change your mind about that in the next couple of years. I think you’re tempted more by your desire to be actually planning your wedding than you are by the dress.
