    That dress is beautiful on you! I bought my dress last year in August, over 2 years before my wedding. I have noooo regrets whatsoever. If you have doubts, then I would say wait a bit longer and just remember that dress. Sorry it’s not much help.

    This is tricky, I would say wait because you are so far out. If you even think you may have regrets you don’t need to be spending money on it. I have two dresses I’m having a hard time selling!! So definitely wait and see how things are closer to the wedding, I’d say about 6or8months out buy the dress.

    Its a beautiful dress and looks great on you.. I would fallow your instincts. I bought my dress about a year out and havent had regrets. Alot of people get their dresses early. But there is always the chance that a new style or whatever will come out in that time that you love. I would advise to wait unless your sure that this is the one!!

    I would probably wait. 2 years is a long time, and your tastes might change a little. Also, not buying this dress now doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get it eventually if it is what you decide you want, closer to the wedding. With 2 years, you’ll have plenty of time to search for a used one, for an even better price.

    I would not buy a dress more than 12 months before the wedding date, so much can change in that time

    I would be really hesitant to by a dress that far in advance.  Maybe it’s just me, but I would more than likely change my mind about the dress I would want it that amount of time.  There will always be new dresses coming out and I would get the urge to go look again closer to my wedding.

    However, that’s just me, you have to do what you feel is right for you!

    That dress looks fantastic on you.  It has your name written all over it!  Are you indecisive?  Think about big decisions you’ve made in the past.  How did you feel afterwards.

    I wouldn’t change my mind because I love getting great deal.  But I know everyone is not like me.  There are threads on here about dress regret all the time. Think about the real YOU and make your decision based on your honest assessment of yourself.
