Hi! Welcome to the Hive! I bought my dress 2 months after Fiance proposed to me on June 2010 lol I found it and bought it right away. It’s fully payed for and it’s sitting at the bridal shop because if I bring it home I’ll put it on ALL the time lol.

Here she is, I’m going there again next month to try it on once I finish strassing my shoes to see how it looks. It’s Maggie Sottero – Nora

I do actually already have my dress, but I did order it pretty dang early. I think you’re fine for now, but I would look seriously into making a decision soon if you can, to make sure you have plenty of time for your dress to come in. Here’s my lovely dress:

Welcome to the Hive! You still have some time, but don’t put it off too long. Depending on where you ordered from, it can take up to 6 months for the dress to come in. Definitely, get a confirmation date from the salon you order from. Be calm. There is still time. =)

Here is a pic of my dress. I bought her on a whim when I was in NYC. My friends and I were only planning on looking but I ended up getting the dress even before I was engaged. lol. Guess it was good luck though bc Fiance proposed three weeks later. =)

@Future_Mrs.Diaz:  Thank you. I did get it at Kleinfeld’s. Don’t stress out. I’m sure you will find your dress on time. What really worked for me was to bring in pictures of styles in my budget that I was leaning towards. From there, my consultant was able to pull dresses based on what I liked or disliked. If you find a dress you are iffy on, don’t let the time frame and consultant push you. Come back another day after you thought about it. It’s a big purchase and a big decision. Take your time. Good luck! =)

@Future_Mrs.Diaz:  I JUST bought my dress last weekend, after much deliberation. As far as time-wise, right now is definitely crunch time if you want to avoid rush fees. My designer is located in America so it only takes four months MAX to make the dress, so I’m safe ::knock on wood::. A couple of bridal people were telling me it takes up to ten to twelve months to make the dress! Puh-lease. 

I say you’re fine but you definitely should make it a priority.

One of my bridesmaids is getting married in AUGUST and she still hasnt decided on a dress. So in comparision, don’t freak out!

I would dedicate your free time to making as many appointments as possible so you can get ahead on this. 

Good luck and please keep us updated!!

Don’t freak out! You still have some time! Have you tried dresses on yet or do you know what you’re looking for? Here’s my Maggie Sottero Cleo… <3 (with the matching sash that I ‘m not planning on wearing)

@Future_Mrs.Diaz:  I will definately keep my fingers croseed for you. And don’t worry about having that “Ah-ha!” moment, where you burst into tears about your dress, because not everyone has it. I had to do some very logical thinking about my dress and almost went with another one. It took slowdancing with my Fiance to our first dance song in our living room with my eyes closed to picture which of the two dresses I would wear. Its not always an easy decision, but I don’t think that I could have ended up with a more perfect dress than I have, even if I didn’t have some crazy reaction to it when I tried it on.
