    How long before your wedding did you buy/order your dress?  I started talking with designers over two years before our wedding date but I didn’t sign a contract until just under two years beforehand. I knew what I wanted, I knew that she was the best person to execute my dream gown and I didn’t see the point in waiting.

    Did you have dress regret? Not so far but I think that’s the beauty of having it custom made. If there is anything that I want to change, I’m able to. I think my mother is still expecting me to change my mind about having a red dress but I’m more excited about it now and it’s one of the reasons that the designer was so willing to work with us – she wanted to do something different.

    I bought my dress in November and am getting married in September (10 months out). I actually got a call this week that it came in 2 months earlier than expected so I’m going on Saturday to pick it up!!


    Funny story about my dress: When I was walking through the store finding dresses I wanted to try- I grabbed that one not realizing that it was a size 22 (I ended up ordering a 2). I caught a glimpse before they clamped me up and I KNEW it was the dress. I honestly think it is the most beautiful dress in the whole world and I can’t wait to try it on in a size that actually fits!! I am BEAMING with excitement hah!!
