You still have plenty of time! I am getting married in July 2011, so I am way way in advanced. I would recommend to order the dress 6 months in advanced, that give time for the dressmaker to make the dress without rushing, and plenty of time for alternations (if it is required). You don't to leave it as a last minute thing and create unnecessary stress.
You can order ur dress with lace up back, that will give more room for future weight gain/loss.

You're so right...how far in advance did you order/get your dress...we're not getting married until August of next year so there's time to lose weight and what ever else...?
