    • Wedding: September 2011

    i went in Sept of last year-  We got engaged in April… but I had to wait until my mom (out of state) could go with me.  I found my dress that day, but waited a few months to order.. I knew it was right wehen I couldnt get it out of my head, and “visited” it 3 times.  It took until this March to get in, and I just had my first fitting at the end of April.  Hope the timing helps you altille.  I wouldnt hold off looking/trying on… but maybe on purchasing until you know one is right

    I went looking over march break since my mother and I were both off work for the week, and were bored! We figured we would go in to look at styles, but found the one. I know this because the next weekend, we went away to get a tour of my sister’s new university, and decided to take the opportunity to look again, and to try and trump the other one. Didn’t happen. I compare everything to it! I think it’s safe to say I’ve found it, but won’t put my deposit down until this July or August… so yea… I’ll have it a year in advance. I hadn’t planned on starting until this summer, but ….. didn’t work out that way 🙂

    I’ve been looking but haven’t found the one yet. I’m happy to have so much time to look because I’m slightly nervous that it will take a long time to find the dress I love that’s in my price range.

    I’ve been looking online for ideas, but I’ll probably start officially shopping this coming August.

    I went looking once over Easter but haven’t gone out since. I am going to start looking again mid August I think. I don’t want to be overwhelmed with choices!

    I’m sorry I’m not an August 2012 bride as you can see but I’d like to pass on my advice/experience. Go the year before and try on loads of styles, which I know you know, but if one particular dress in a style doesn’t suit you, don’t give up there, try on another in that style, just in case.

    I was a Aug 2012 bride when I started dress shopping in April of this year.  I have since moved up my date to May 2012 when we decided to move the wedding to Las Vegas.   I have both dresses hanging in my closet.

    I’m leaving it until Autumn this year – I know I’ll change my mind a million times! Plus I’d like to lose some more weight first!

    I ordered my dress a couple months ago. It should (hopefully) be in by September. 🙂

    I am looking to start dress shopping in August while my fiance is away on vacation.  So I hope that gives me some time to look around and get a feel for the styles I like..  I know I will be very picky so I hope there is something that I like.  I am kinda pushing it off since I am a bit nervous and want to loose weight..  and I have already had dreams about picking the wrong dress or having something wrong happen with it.  Yikes!  (Even when I haven’t stepped in a bridal store yet but looked through magazines).
