I put a deposit on my venue first… I’m a June bride, and that month is verrrrrry popular where I’m from. I’m buying my dress next month. 🙂 6 months out.

I purchased my dress really early. Nothing else was even planned yet, other than our colors and theme. We had ideas of where and when we wanted to do it, but the dress was my very first purchase.

9 months before the wedding.

It took 3 months to come in,  1 month at alterations for a bustle, and dry cleaners needs it 2 weeks before for pressing!  It’s worked out to be the perfect timeline for me!

10 months before my wedding 🙂 You’ll need more/less time depending on the designer you choose.

I got my dress and put the deposit on the venue on the same day. However that is just because I am planning my wedding from afar. I had looked at my venue almost 2 months earlier and decided it was the one, then went back to sign the contract/deposit. I’m trying to get done as much as possible on my trips back to my parent’s since the wedding is in 8 months and I will only be going back a max of once a month.

I booked the venues first, as my wedding is in June and those Saturdays are hard to come by! I bought the dress a little over 9 months in advance.

We booked the venue just under 12 months out and I bought my dress 11 months out (lucky as its only going to arrive 2 months before the wedding!)

we booked the venue 2 months before we got engaged (over a year before getting married), and I just bought my dress last month (8 months before my wedding).

We book our venue 14 months out and I bought my dress extremely early at one year out. But it was a really good deal and I couldnt pass it up!

Venue was booked 18-19 months out, and I ordered the dress 12 months out, but i had started looking for dresses before i had even started looking at venues.
