I have just joined and need some advice! I am after a lace mermaid Pronovias dress called Balear from their 2012 collection. I’ve rung round all the local stockists to me but none seem to have this dress and have told me to book an appointment at the London store. I’ve booked an appointment and ended up paying £50 for a saturday appointment! I just wondered if anyone had any advice/tips for the London store as I’ve heard they ship you in and out very quickly.
Also, what are the chances of them having the Balear dress? I’ve sent them an email but still await a response!
We’re planning on getting married in June 2014 – am I looking too early for a dress?
Any advice would be muchly appreciated.

Did the store you booked at have the dress? If it’s a 2012 waiting a year to start looking may mean the dress is gone, but also take into consideration that your weight or taste may fluctuate between now and 2014.
I already have a dress 8 months out from my wedding but I keep seeing beautiful dresses on the Bee that are driving me up the wall! Sometimes I wonder if I should have waited longer before purchasing to see if I fell in love with anything else!

@Rachies: Hi there. I visited that store when I was looking for dresses. Some of the staff are truely awful and I hope you have a better experience. To be honest, I would not buy your dress so soon. Wedding fashion changes and you will certainly see loads of dresses that you like more between now and the wedding. If you still havent found something that you like more than this dress 6 months before the wedding I can bet you will be able to find it second hand and have it altered to fit perfectly, (and in the process save a fair bit of money).
