7 months out is def not too early IMO… it usually takes at least 2 months to get them in, and you’re going to want to have at least 1 month to get them altered so everyone has time to get it done on their schedule and no one has to pay rush fees. Personally I would want to know that the dresses had arrived far enough in advance to cover any potential ordering mishaps. My plan is to start looking about 6-7 months out..

Definitely not too early.  It gives you time for alterations.  It also makes color-matching and finding their shoes and accesories easier.

We found them May 15 and ordered them the first week of june so I was actually about 7 months out!
