gandules:  I DO NOT think you should wait a year to buy a dress because that will be early spring of 2016, obviously months before your own wedding. Nope. You need to order at least 6 months out.

Go nuts and buy your dress now. But not if you plan on losing a bit of weight. Might be best to give yourself 6 months to do that. But if you’re comfortable with it, I say start looking.

Hey! I am an April 2016 bride and I actually already bought my dress. Went in with the expectation of just looking and probably not finding anything yet; but I fell in love with the 3rd dress and never looked back! Good Luck!

I’m buying my dress 6 months out. The goal is to lose 80 pounds before the big day, so I’m trying to get 60 off in 6 months (2.4lbs per week.) That will have me pretty happy and needing less alterations. My wedding is March 12th, 2016

gandules:  its never to early to start dress shopping IMO. For me, finding a dress was harder than I anticipated, and I never pictured myself being a picky bride! Plus, a lot of dresses take a long time to get in from the designer so better early than late. You don’t want to be freaking out looking for a dress off the rack a few months before the wedding. I found mine, and now I can rest assured that piece of the wedding planning is done ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a March 2016 bride and could potentially be buying my dress this weekend!  I wanted to buy preowned and found a seller in my city!  She’s the same size, and selling the dress for 50% less than retail.  It’s a Vera Wang too!  If it fits like a glove – why wouldn’t I buy it?!  I hope it fits when I see her this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been obsessing over this dress since last summer, I don’t even think I want to look for anything else!
