I think I would wait until you are engaged and have a general idea of when you are getting married.  I bought my dress too soon and I wish I hadn’t jumped the gun on it.

I think its too soon. I’d wait until the ring is on your finger– it will make it so much more special

I would wait until you are engaged.  Almost a year went by from the first time FI and I looked at rings and when we got engaged.  My BFF got engaged today (eeeee soo happy for her)  and he waited 9 months from the first time when they looked at rings.  So just wait patiently for your ring.  It will make dress shopping so much more fun when you are engaged.

Sad to pass up a deal.  They were giving away dresses for military brides with FI overseas and I don’t think my BF would have had a problem with me getting a dress for FREE.  But you had to be engaged and they had to be deployed.  So we were screwed either way.
