I do NOT think it is too early to go shopping.  I DO think it is too early for purchasing.  These boards are filled with posts about dress regret (mine included) because people found something they like better a couple months later.  Had I spent more time looking, I probably would have made a better decision the first time.

I say shop to your heart’s content–surely there is at least one friend that loves to look at wedding dresses all the time!  Save the actual purchase for the spring and take the entourage then.

You and I have the same date and I bought my dress in August.  2011 lines have already been released, so you aren’t going to miss out on new styles.  And I was told my dress would take at least 6 months to come in.  It is not too early for you to be dress shopping at all.

Some designers don’t take that long to come in, others will take even longer.  For me I actually bought my dress in Boston (where I’m originally from) even though I now live in Pittsburgh.  So I’m actually going to have to fly up once it comes in to fly it down here, then find a decent seamstress.

I’ve actually heard some people say their dresses took 9 MONTHS to come in.  So tell your family and friends it isn’t too early at all.

PS – if you find a dress and decide to purchase it you need to stop looking.  I’m sure if I was still looking at wedding dresses all the time and imagining me in them I would end up with dress regret, but my dress was purchased almost 2 months ago and I’m still obsessed with it, lol.  I look at pictures of it regularly.  When I imagine my wedding day, I imagine that dress.  But, like I said, if I was still looking at dresses, that probably wouldn’t be the case.

No it’s not too early as you need to find out what style suits you. On my first shopping trip nothing suited me at all. It was on the second trip that they looked great and I personally found one particular designer suited me best.
