Crazy to get my dress 8 months before?

Recommended Posts

Day before yesterday, I went to a bridal salon after work and found a dress I really liked. At this salon, you buy that dress rather than ordering it. Its a discount salon but designer dresses.

 

So my mom drove in 2 hours this morning to see it and bought it for me on the spot! I now have my wedding dress hanging in the closet and my wedding is 8 months from tomorrow. Did I get my dress too early? It's everything I was looking for (fit, color, front, back, price!) My only concern is that I hadn't tried on enough dresses. I'm really bad with commitment and do this back and forth on everything (apartments, cars, jobs, any big decision).

 

Please tell me 8 months before is not too soon!

I am just under 10 months from my wedding and got my dress a few weeks ago! So I don't think it is to early...just one thing to get off the "to do list"

Dallas: i am only about 8 months and 2 weeks out from my ideal wedding date, no i don't think it's too early to get your dress. i started looking about 1.5 months ago and wouldn't stop looking. the only reason i stopped is because i went home to Minnesota for a dress b/c there's no sales tax up there on wedding dresses. i can't afford to keep going up there so i settled on one that i really love. plus, i will get it back earlier and then i can keep trying it on. hehe my other top choices were all supposed to take 6-8 months to come in if i ordered them so i was actually cutting it pretty close or so said most of the sales people. I also keep thinking that i'll find one i like better that maybe i jumped the gun a little bit but i do that with everything. i do it with new shoes, new clothes, new books, EVERYTHING so i'm trying to not be like that.

i think if you love the dress then good for you for finding one so soon and not having to stress out about it! :)

They actually suggest you order your dress at least 6 months to a year before your wedding. I purchased my dress in October or November of last year and I just got married 3 weeks ago.

I got mine 11 months before. I was buying off the rack so I wanted to do it while white was still in stores. it was nice to have it done early.

I don't think you're crazy at all! I ordered my dress at the first shop I went to try on dresses (Lulu's). I was feeling the exact same way you were but I quickly got over it. I'm so happy with my choice, and am glad to have that decision over with!! I've made myself promise not to even look at other dresses because I can be very indecisive and wishy washy when it comes to big decisions like this.

 

I say be happy, don't look at any other dresses and put a big red check mark next to "Dress"! :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
