I have my eyes on a few dresses, but my wedding date is 2 years out. I feel strange to start trying on dresses and asking people to come with me. I was thinking I'll start dress shopping in June since it's a year out. But, I would love to see what fits me before I drag my family hours away from their homes to look at dresses with me. I thought of going alone to see what I like. Then bring them with me to make my final decision.

That's a good idea (going alone to see what you actually like on your body) - I picked a bunch of cap-sleeved simple dresses... tried them all on & ended up picking a strapless bling-ed out dress. Go play with styles so that you can have you'r full "real" appointment with you'r friends and family to pick a beautiful gown!

I was on the same boat. I started looking online two years out. I was already engaged but I also felt bad asking people to come with me. I bought my dress a bit over a year before the wedding, in June this year. It's still a long way out but I couldn't stop myself anymore haha. I don't think people will mind coming with you if you have no idea what you like. That's half the fun! I felt so blindsided on my first appointment. I didn't know what I liked or what I didn't. They all felt pretty to me unless they were really ugly but it was fun nonetheless

A year out is good. Most bridal shops will tell you a year. Some styles take longer than others too.

About a year to 6 months before the wedding. Most bridal shops will need 6 months to get your dress in, unless you're buying a sample dress. I bought my dress way too early, and ended up changing my mind, because my vision for the day changed. I ended up selling that dress and getting another one. Good luck and happy shopping

6 months is a bit tight if ordering a designer dress and leaving time for alterations! Especially if you may not find THE dress immediately. A year out will allow you time for your ideal dress to come in (which can take over 6 months with some high end designers), and not be stressed.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
