I bought my dress in october/november ish.. and I am not getting married until july next year! It just came in on wednesday, and I have not tried on my own dress yet, but I can still say I am in love with it. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. I am sure I won’t have any size issues. A little advice, you can always take in a dress but not always take one out. good luck to you!

I started dress shopping about 19 months before the wedding, because I wanted to see what was out there and can be kinda picky.  I won’t buy anything unless everything about it is exactly what I want.  I so happened to find a dress I loved about a month and a half into looking.  It isn’t a dress from a traditional bridal line (I found it at Lord and Taylor), so I really had to get it sooner rather than later.

I started 3 months before our wedding(Pushed up the date).  I knew I wanted to purchase a ready to wear dress because of our budget.  Thanx 2 preownedweddingdress.com, I found my Girl who is actually a sample.  I am having a reception dress made from China as well since it will be easier to party in.

I know everyone thinks differently but I tend to perform better under pressure.  Also it prevented definite dress regret.

I started trying on dresses in August 2010 and found my dress in September 2010.  My wedding was in May 2011 so that’s about 10 months before the wedding.

I started looking 16 months before the date and found my dress 14 months before the date. Yay! 🙂 I only went to 3 places though and fell in love right away at the second place and bought it at the third. I was already tired of shopping and knew what I wanted and what I didn’t.
