    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!

            Thanks Jordan! I had no idea they should be purchased that early. I'm almost to the point the taking the plunge! Lol

                      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. :)
