    Ok, I need some advice.
    I found 2 dresses online and I'm almost positive one of them will be 'the one'. Here's the problem...they are from the Spring 2008 collection and won't be in stores until December or January! The stores I have spoken with that will be getting them assured me that I could still order it that late and still have it for my July wedding, but I'm scared!

    Should I order without trying it on? Or push it and wait a month or two? Or just look for something else? Ah, I don't know what to do!!

    BTW, here are the dresses...

      the second dress is really pretty.... but what is pretty on a model may not be the best for you! I picked out a lot of dresses that I liked online and then of course when I went to try them on, I hated them....

        I completely agree with Shelley. I ended up getting a dress in the one style that I thought I didn't want. You never know what will look best on you!

          There is no way I could've ordered my dress without trying it on. I know a lot of girls have done that, but I liked a lot of dresses that looked awful on me. If you can try on a similar shape by the same designer, and you still love it, then it shouldn't be a problem. But, if that's not possible, I honestly think you should be ok if you order it in December.

              I think I like the first one better (love the detailing on the bust and the train); but, I must agree w/ the other gals. I think it's all about the "fit" of any outfit. You could have the most expensive couture gown, not have it flatter your body-type or not have it tailored just right...it won't look as beautiful. Just my thoughts....

                I am a July bride to and won't be ordering my dress til December because I'm so busy right now. You should be okay for time. :)
                Congrats to you.

                  The first dress is stunning!

                  I agree with the other posts that you should wait. I too ended up with a completely different dress than what I had imagined (and bought for my first dress at Filene's Basement bridal sale). Plus, you should have plenty of time if you order in december and your wedding is in July.

                    Both dresses are beautiful, but i"m in agreement with the other ladies, DEFINITELY try it on. I looked an tons of dresses on line, loved them, went to try them on and looked blaugh!! you don't want to regret your decision...just keep yourself busy until they come in. you'll feel more confident in your decision.

                      I love love love these dresses, I was looking for one like that to try on when I tried on my dress but had no luck. Mon Cheri dresses fit really nicely, I almost got one of their dresses, Serena. BUT, I think you need to try them on. All those pleats, what if they sit in the wrong spots and make your hips look huge or look kinda maternity around the belly or something. I think you should go out and try dresses on, to get an idea of what other dresses are like and what styles you like and then go and try these 2 on when you can. Then make your decision. There are also a lot of online vendors that sell Mon Cheri dresses a lot cheaper. But, you need to try them on first.
