    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 started in July 08 for a Nov 09 wedding lots of time I was just excited. I think 12 months is lots of 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!
