How early did you buy your dress?

Recommended Posts

I bought my dress in March 2011 and got married May 2012. As soon as I got my dress, I had my first fitting within a week and my last fitting was just a week before my wedding! I was starting to get nervous becuz my tailor was so precise that I actually had 5 fittings!

 

So that being said, I dont think that 11 months out is too far away at all! My dress had a corset back which meant I could fluctuate in size quite a bit, but I have also not been but 5 pounds more than what I weighed as a teenager. I would order your dress at the size you are now because they can always make a dress smaller, but if you order your dress smaller and dont get down to the size you ordered, they cant make it bigger!

They say you should buy them a minimum for six months before, and 9 months to a year is even better. Depending on the designer, it can take that long - mine took 6 months! I think you should go for it!

Our wedding is August 4, 2013 and I'm actually going to pick up my gown next Friday from the salon! It was a sample so I was just making payments on it, but I found her last month. I knew she was exactly what I needed! So it's definitely not too early. :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
