    I ended up getting a Venus instead of a Maggie but when I was shopping I tried some on, and I was told 6 months.  I wouldn't wait until January because that's probably cutting it too close with alterations and everything.

      I'm in the process of ordering a Maggie dress and it can take up to 6 months plus another 2 months for alterations so don't wait too long.  So I have my resort, dress and save the dates :).  Yet I'm so behind.

       

      I ordered magnets from Vista Print with my Monogram and added information, I totally love them and they were super inexpensive.  They are also larger than normal maybe 5 x 4.  Love love!!

       

      I was really ready to book Sungold photography but I'm not sure what's holding me back.  I have the contract on hand.  I guess because I initially purchased a dress on impulse that I wasn't in love with, as well as save the dates that were Blah...and I'm afraid to do the same with Photography.  But now I'm completely in love with my Maggie dress and my VistaPrint STD's.  I don't want to continue second guessing my 1st decisions

        Missgomes - I would start shopping sooner than that, unless you are definitely planning to buy off the rack. Some stores will sell you anything, and others only carry samples and you will need to order. I actually just bought my dress this past weekend! :) It's an 'Ella', and it will only arrive in January. That leaves me the suggested 2 months for any alterations that might be necessary, and some extra 'padding' in case anything goes wrong!

         

        It all depends on you, and what you're comfortable with. The dress is the last thing I wanted to be stressing about! Plus it's tons of fun to shop for, why put it off? :) Lol

         

        Here's my dress:

              I will be arriving at the Suites on the 16th, your wedding day!  Mine weddign dayis on the 19th!  I totally understand about makin impulsive decisions.  Part of me knows its the right thing to do and part of me is like OMG, I do not want to waste money!  I impulsively purchased a dress and now I am having a hard time getting it off my hands.  Grrrrr!

                I guess I should really start looking then.  I'm so clueless to this stuff.  I will definitely use you ladies as a planning guide!!   Thanks so much for the info!

                      Thank you girls!!! I'm feel the same, yesterday I was overwhelmed and today I feel like I have it under control :) I have to finalize these STDs and I will feel much better. I haven't even started looking for a dress, but have been checking out the knock-off dresses thread on this forum and I think that is the way I want to go. I still have to decide on a style though, but first STDs.

                       

                      What did you all do for STDs? I'm thinking of doing postcards on Vistaprint since they are free and then do my own passport invites.
