I purchased my dress last December, and my wedding isn’t for another 2 months! LOL I was also warned about discontinuations of the dress (a Maggie Sottero), but my deciding factor was when I tried it on. Call me crazy but it was the only one I tried on, and I’m STILL in love with it! Going for my first fitting on Tuesday!!!

Personally, I say go with your gut! And if you decide in a year that you REALLY don’t want it any more, try selling it on ebay or something. 

Good luck! 🙂

Dress regret is horrid.  So many girls discuss how they got their dress 2 years ago and now they are not sure.  I myself am getting married in 6 weeks. I fell in love with a dress and was afraid that it wouldn’t be there when is was my time.  Needless to say I am not wearing the first one that I purchased way too early and so many more wonderful things came after it. For instance I bet pockets will be so 2 years ago at your wedding or everyone will have them and it will no longer be a unique touch.  I’m not trying to burst your bubble, but trying to answer your question honestly.  (Plus it will be sitting around for a very long time, discoloration, risk of Fiance seeing it, or crazy storage fees)

I bought my dress 15 months before my wedding and never wavered that it was my dress.  Are you feeling pressured to buy it since it might be discontinued or did you know it was the one when you tried it on?  Do you change your mind easily? 

I knew mine was the one and once I make a decision I don’t usually change it.  That’s why I wasn’t worried about purchasing mine with so much to go.  Oh I should mention that although I paid for mine in full it wasn’t ordered until several months later.  I’m not sure if they would’ve allowed me to put the money against another dress but again, it was never a question.  I LOVED it when I tried it on, I loved it several months later when I ordered it and I loved it when it finally came in.

I bought my dress at a reasonable time so I can’t really comment on that aspect, but I just wanted to say that I love that dress! I’m kicking myself for not looking harder to find one like that lol. I had tried on ones that look like the 2nd dress you posted, the one with the pleats, and those are not flattering (at least on me)! They made me look too hippy so I passed on those dresses because I couldn’t find one I liked without the pleats. So if it’s something you really love then I say order it now so you don’t lose it, because it’s really hard to find one without pleats. However, if you’ve never tried on one with the pleats I’d recommend trying it on because who knows, you may love the look of it and the new version might work out perfectly for you.

Oh my gosh! I love that dress and all the sparkleness.  If you don’t me asking – is the price tag over 5k? I would get the dress as long as you love it!

My dress is being discontinued and while it was a push in the right direction towards my decision, I knew it when I was wearing it.  And when I left the store and kept looking at pictures of me in it.  I went back two days later, tried on the 3 dresses I liked, and chose my dress.  I’m incredibly happy with my choice and haven’t seen anything to compare with it. 

If you feel like that, then go for it!  If not, there is another dress that you will love as well.

Then don’t change your mind!  My mom was nervous too but I just said mom, when I know I know.

Buy the dress now! We all have dress envy and that’s because we see pictures of beautiful dresses and only wear one. However if you can’t stop thinking about it now there is no way you will have dress envy that day!

I bought my dress 18 months before our wedding at a trunk show, so there was some pressure to make the decision quickly (10% off and the representative of the designer told me she’d give me free extra lenghth ($300 value) if I ordered it at the show, which was only for one weekend).

My mom wasn’t with me when I found my dress, and it was the first time I had gone shopping, and it was only the second dress that I tried on.  My mom was really hesitant to take the plunge, and thought I might regret it later on.  However, I knew it was the dress for me because I felt like it was totally “me.”  I was really happy to make the decision and get it done… then I could start focusing on all of the other details and accessories. 

If you already found a dress that you loved, but then kept shopping and found the Lazaro dress, then you should definitely STOP that.  If you decide to get the Lazaro dress now, that is.  Just stop shopping.  And going forward, when you see (in a magazine, or whatever) a dress that you really love, and you probably will, remind yourself that the Lazaro dress is totally you.

Good luck!

And, because I forgot to mention it before, I think the dress is absolutely stunning!  Do it!

Yay, we’re month twins! Glad to know I’m not the only early planner.

I think the dress is gorgeous on you. I would go ahead and get it, but like Witz said, stop shopping after you commit to the dress. It really looks great on you. Just do it, but don’t fall into the second-guessing trap afterwards.

Buy the dress you love, when you know you know and who cares about the “timeline” that you feel like you need to follow, if you love the dress and it is what you want to wear then go for it!
