    Errrrm I found my dress last year within a week of being engaged. Only went shopping to see what it felt like to be wearing a wedding gown and an engagement ring! It was 3rd or 4th I tried, I had abit of a look around, but this dress always crept into my mind and I couldnt stop comparing it to others.... Getting married in 2007, so I am in the same boat as you! My dress deposit is now paid for; my dress, shoes and tiara have been ordered
  • I am a nightmare to go shopping with cos I would never buy the first dress I see. Personally I would always hang on . If you think it is the right one, just take the name and style and ask them to contact you if it being discontinued but I would probably just hand ona bit longer and shop around. You have got plenty of ytime. Don't let them fool you with that 12months crap about ordering - you need about 4 months.

    Ah date is in October this year and still haven't found one so not really the right advice from me. I was told at least 6 months so the next few months will be a bit hectic!

    I would definitely keep that dress in mind but you don't need to order it andything like right now so maybe continue to have a look - after all it gives you an excuse to get into more dresses and then maybe by the end of the summer if that is still the one you dream of and can't get out of your head then go for it but since there is no rush take your time!

  • Hi girls - I think once you know it is the one - get it! They always say that everything hinges on the wedding dress - the bridesmaid dresses - the flowers, the theme, the colour scheme - and I think they are right! I tried on loads but just knew when I saw it - and it makes me happy inside just thinking about my dress. I'm not getting married until June 2007 - but I know that whatever else I need to plan - I have my dress!!
  • I'm getting married in October and went for a look at dresses a fortnight ago and ended up buying one. It was at the first shop and is only costing £230 altogether as is not a traditional wedding dress but is classed as a prom dress but is absolutely gorgeous. I got it from a small independent store which specialises in wedding and prom dresses and the service I got was amazing and for the same price they are altering it and adding all the details (such as schwarski crystal beading). It also includes a wrap that goes with the dress.
  • Antonia - sounds like I am almost purchasing the same dress as you - although Iam just going for the corset top and going to get the skirt made spearately. It's such a lovely colour. I think it's the one for me I keep gpong back to it and have tried it on 4 times already and compare everything else to it!!!!
