    I was not very into it. I was engaged in mid march of this year and finally started shopping at the end of October. I can't make up my mind and I still haven't found one. I am getting married end of may 2008 so I need to do it quick but with my crazy finals, I probably won't get it until last week dec or fist week jan...and hope it has enough time to get here!!

        I went almost immediately....I think about 2-3 weeks after our engagement. Partly out of excitement, partly because I had to - our engagement was only 7 months total. I didn't know how long I would have to shop before I found "the one" and I didn't want to wait too long and have to pay rush charges etc.

          I went dress shopping about 3 months after getting engaged. I found my dress in the first store and I ended up buying it like 7 months later.

            i got engaged in june of this year and went dress shopping for the first time in august. i waited to actually order the dress until just two weeks ago though. i wanted to give it AT LEAST six months just to make sure i had enough time for alterations and not have to pay a rush free. I didn't want to stress about it possibly not getting here on time.

              I got engaged last December and waited til this August to try dresses. I too felt as though I wanted to loose weight (I have yet to step in the gym) and I didn't want to "fall in love" with a dress too soon then change my mind later. I went to about 5 stores (but went back 3 times to try on the dress I ended up ordering).

                we are having a long engagement. he proposed june/06, we are not getting married until may/08,so i waited just over a year. started in september, got a feel for what i liked. got my dress last month nov/07.
                trying on dresses gave me modivation for wanting to look amazing on my wedding day. maybe for you too.
                i say go now, the search maybe take a while and you don't seem to have too much time to spare.

                  i went a few weeks after getting engaged - like 2-3 weeks, i think. but our engagement will only be 8 months. the dress took about 4-5 months to come in.

                  i say start shopping now, only so you don't panic later.
