When did you start trying on dresses?

Recommended Posts

How far from your wedding did you start trying on gowns? How much cushion should I give myself, if I plan to try on gowns in store and then order them online. If I start loooking 12 months before is that enough time?

I don't think they'll mind. Just be honest up front and let them know that you don't plan on buying yet. I started trying on gowns after I got engaged in July 2008 but my wedding isn't until January 2010. Like lscilly I was just excited and it's fun. 12 months is plenty of time!

It's great that you have so much time ! I started beginning of November for a wedding beginning of May... only 6 months... but I had only 7 months to plan the whole thing so I guess it was early in my planning !

I started looking in August and our wedding is in April 09. I was told that my dress was coming from China which could take up to 5 months, but only ended up taking about 3 months to get here.

I don't think the bridal shops will mind at all!!

 

I started looking in August 08 and we are getting married in August 09. Honestly, it was almost not enough time for me. I found my dress at the end of December 08 and it was just before the cut off when I would have had to pay more to have it rushed so I can have alterations done on time.

 

Go look and have fun!

I started and ended in August '08 for my April '09 wedding. I would think bridal places arent going to mind - it's business for them!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
