    I just ordered my dress yesterday, and I want it so much already. How are you supposed to wait 4 or 5 months before it even comes in, then wait for alterations??! I'm thinking it's a little bit crazy. Plus, you only get to wear it one time, plus maybe one more time if you're having an AHR (one more bonus to the DW!). It's just not fair. The wait is killing me, and it has barely begun!

      I went crazy waiting for my dress. When it came in my FMIL and mom both offered to keep it at their houses because I live with FI. I was not going to let that happen. We have a room that is off limits to FI, so that I can have my dress close at hand. I love looking at it. I would put it on all the time if I could , but I'm nervous I will reip the lace. Your dress will comel, and you will get the same satisfaction.

        I am going crazy as well. Ordered mine in January... and have to wait until June. The hardest part is to keep myself from looking at other dresses in the meantime... I know I love my dress... but there is so much out there!

          My daughter ordered her dress and then waited at least 8 months! I don't know how she did it.

          I'm going to be keeping the wedding dress at my house as my daughter also lives with her FI in a very small apartment. Katie can not be trusted not to show Chris the dress :)

            I didn't want to keep mine with me. I left it at the salon until 2 days before we left! I didn't want to be tempted to show it - or to mess it up.
            Try to forget about it. Think about all the other stuff you have to do to take your mind off of it.

              Me too, Kate... mines at the salon where I have to make an appointment to see it.

              Somehow, the time has seriously flown by... trust me, it will for you too. The first few weeks though, I think I looked at my dress online everyday! Trust me, the next 4-5 months will go faster than you think!

                That has been the hardest thing so far...waiting and waiting for the mths to pass by and hoping your phone will ring and its the salon telling you your dress is in....agghhhhh. I have to wait til around Sept. Hopefully the time will fly for all of us.

                  Ah that sucks. I got mine off the rack but now I have it getting altered and I hate waiting.

                    I'm in the exact same boat! Ordered mine yesterday and I am going crazy wanting to put it on again

                      Waiting is hard! I just bought mine off the rack, but I am trying not to look at any others... I have such a hard time making a choice!
