@sarahjc0015: Sadly, no, it was a pretty frustrating experience. At least there’s still time, right?

Ordered my dress 2 weeks ago! Won’t come in until end of June. I took dozens of photos when I ordered the dress, and that was helpful in that I can see where I need to lose the last 10lbs 🙁

I was June 2012 and had been shopping already. I know which dress I want, but I’m not going to order it until November. I want to lose another 30 pounds first.

Going for the first time to look with mom and aunt this weekend! I can’t find the dress I really want anywhere, so I suspect I might get it custom made.

I bought mine about 2 weeks ago because I was positive it was what I wanted. I am however getting a reception dress as well. I probably won’t buy that till november/december.

I purchased mine on August 13, 2011 and it will arrive on February 14th (Valentine’s Day)… our wedding day is September 22, 2012.  I was not planning on purchasing it so soon, but I fell in love with it and was offered 100 dollars off if I purchased it that day.

I bought mine 2 weeks ago.  It was the only time in the next year that my Mom, my sister & I would all be in the same city at the same time.

I was expecting to

A) take the whole week I wa visiting to find it (it was the 5th dress I tried on, at the 1st store; although I tried on ~20 more dresses at 3 more stores)

B) have to order it & wait impatiently; but ended up being able to buy the sample. We spent the next week doing the alterations ourselves. ^__^

 

It’s a huge relief to have it, for me.

I bought mine in June! I thought it would take awhile to get the dress in (I was looking at Claire Pettibone dresses). But, I found something totally unexpected and it’ll be here next month!!!!! It’s soo soon but I can plan my whole wedding around the theme of the dress =)

@DaniBanani  I was offered the same $100 discount. I hadn’t heard of that kind of thing before, either. Had you?

a designer I really like (Liancarlo) is having a trunk show at a NYC location near me at the end of this month. so my mom & I figured that will be our first trip out. it is a little earlier than I initially planned on starting (who doesn’t want to drop another 5-10lbs before trying dresses on??) but I figured it was a good opportunity to get out there and see what we see. I’m excited!

@Ivorybuttons:No I haven’t heard of anything like that before and was not expecting it… I just went in to try dresses on because my mother was visiting and wanted to go with me.  I wasn’t planning on purchasing my dress until at least November but I found the one I loved and didn’t want to wait on it because $100 savings is a lot to me!

I already bought mine too. I found a lovely lace covered Niki Livas on the clearance rack for $200. Score! It’ll need to be taken in a tad & I’m removing the gaudy beading on the bodice and replacing that with a vintage style brooch. Once I find shoes, I’ll get it hemmed up. :o)
