I don’t think it hurts to look and try dresses on but I think you should wait a year out to actually purchase a dress. It also be a good idea to pick a venue before picking a dress also. Sometime the dress doesn’t match the venue so brides sometimes purchase another dress.

I already know which one I’ll be buying. I found it about 2 months ago and have continued looking,  but haven’t found anything I liked more ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a May 2016 bride and I actually put down a deposit on my dress last weekend!

I wasn’t planning on buying just yet (I wanted to pick a dress and think on it for a while), but I found my dress at a trunk show and got 10% off for ordering that weekend, so I went for it.

April 2016 bride here! Went shopping only twice, two different stores but I tried on this one dress at both stores that I absolurely love. I’m a little nervous about being so set on a dress so quickly but I’m hoping to try it on again later this month and make the final decision ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m June 2016, and I just bought my dress a few weeks ago. I wasn’t planning on getting it done so soon, but I found the dress I loved and had to go for it!

We are on the verge of booking our venue, caterer, photographer, and videographer. Where I’m located, things book up over a year in advance in a lot of cases, so I want the big things done and booked ASAP to ensure I get what I want. I’d rather buy things early than wait and be rushed.
