Um, lets see...I don't even remember when I actually went to the store. But just keep in mind that you should have your dress ordered no less than 8 months from your actual date, but that is depending on the designer & ofcourse doesn't apply if you're buying off the rack.

I would even say that you have 6 months but I wouldn't wait any longer than that. Even though I had found my dress in the summer, I waited 2 more months before I actually ordered it. By that time, I had to pay a rush fee because the delivery time was 6 months. So the rush fee ensured that my dress got in on time. And remember, once its ordered & gets in to the bridal shop, there are alterations, which can take roughly another month!
Hopefully that didn't confuse or overwhelm you! LOL

Dress shopping can be a lot of fun but you have to be sure you go to salons where people want to spend time with you. I went to a couple shops when I first started trying on dressed and the women did not even want to clip the dress, I think since I told them I was just starting to look possibly they did not think I was serious, so I would also really recommend boy shorts bc the women would have me walk out of the fitting room with my bum hanging out. I then told my mom this is not what I thought it would be like, but then I did find some really nice bridal salons and they were awesome clipped the dress to show it how it should really look and would have me try on dresses I never thought I would like. So things to bring/wear boy shorts, strapless bra and a open mind. Once you are done go have some wine and talk over your options, when you find the dress you will just know.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
