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...

Thanks for all the advice so far!

 

I have tried on a similar style dress from another designer - Sincerity Bridal - Style: 3184

 

It was close, but not quite what I was looking for (a bit TOO girly with the bow and all).

 

I think I'll go ahead and wait until one of the bridal salons gets the dress in so I can see it in person. I hate waiting though! lol.

I LOVE both of those!!!

 

I agree with the other girls though that you should really try it on. I ordered a dress online and when it come it fit HORRIBLY (and I gave them my measurements!!) so now I have 2 dresses b/c I went and bought another b/c I hated how the first one fit....anyone want to buy a dress??!! LOL!!

I just want to say that I love the second dress! Beautiful!!!

 

- and I ordered my dress in September and my wedding is in April. Same thing as ordering it in December/January for a July wedding.

I think it depends on the designer, but I think 4-6 months to order is standard. With that said, you could either try on other dresses in that style to see if you like it or wait until December and try on the actual dresses..

 

I would continue my search but hold off buying anything until you try them on in December.. that way if you don't like them on you, you might find something else that you love!

I would def try it on first... you never know and I would hate to not like my wedding dress. Plus alot of times you can always rush deliver the order if you have to and its not that much more.

Holy crap, those dresses are BEAUTIFUL!!!!

 

I LOVE them both! I think the 2nd would be very flattering on just about any figure -- and it draws atttion to the bustline and away from the hips (a dream design for me!!!).

 

However, I would not buy one without trying it on, b/c all the dresses i LOVED -- didn't do a thing for me when I tried them on and the dresses I never cared for are the ones I narrowed it down to b/c of how flattering they were when I tried them on.

 

I think you should be okay waiting until January to try it on and order it.
