    Well Im getting married in September 2017 and I wasn’t even thinking of going dress shopping but one evening I decided to have a look online at dresses just to have an idea of styles and price and I ended up falling in love with this one dress which is on promotion at half price.

    I figure for the price and the fact I absolutely love it I might as well go try it on otherwise I’ll always be wondering. So I booked an appointment to go in three weeks time….very excited!!!

    Plus the woman in the shop said if I do end up getting it, it will take between 6-9 months to get it back made to my measurements so when you think of it that way I don’t think its all that early! I would say though that this is kind of a classic style that I can’t see going out of fashion much in 2 years and maybe bare the style in mind when you do go looking whenever you decide to. 😉

    I’m April 2016 too. I started looking in October/November and thought it would take ages to find one I liked. I found it in November but needed to save up a bit (wrong side of Christmas) to pay the deposit. I tried it on again and ordered it in early March. I think for my designer, the shop was saying at least 6 months @flightyrose16 but some designers might be longer turnaround time. You should be fine though. I just know my dress will need alterations so I got it early. I was also afraid it was going to be discontinued as I found it before the year/season changed.

    I think the typical advice is to get your dress 6-9 months before.

    I would be scared ordering it too soon as styles change and I might see something else I’d prefer or worse I might fall out of love with what I ordered!!

    I went dress shopping in Feb 15 for our July 15 wedding. Most places said I was on the brink of having issues getting it in on time but should be OK and one said I’d have to pay an extra €250 for a rush order. Ended up getting a completely made to measure dress that I wasn’t measured for until March. Have already had my first fitting and going for second next week.

    You can also buy in sample sales or in vintage/second hand shops, I’ve heard of brides getting amazing dresses at a fraction of the cost a month before their wedding

    I am getting married September 2016. I have booked a week of work at the end of September this year to start my wedding dress shopping. Have a few appointments made. Although I have an appointment made for in a few weeks time. I purely just want to try dresses on. I am not buying yet until September. In saying that my lovely mummy is buying it for me!!!!

    I am getting married in May 2016 and was very worried about this so had my dress on the top of my list.

    Word of caution – my friend is getting married in July 2016 and has just been told that her dress is coming 2 weeks before her wedding date! Doesn’t leave much time to alterations etc so I would advise looking at dresses as soon as is feasible.

    Getting Married September ’16, I got my dress there at the end of August this year. She said that it should be ready and delivered in February so leaves me plenty of time for fittings, etc…

    Im getting married July 2017. I was planning on starting the search July 2016. By the sounds of it, I will need to start then after all. Time seems to creep by so fast.. what about bridesmaid dresses? Im steering clear of the traditional ball gown bridesmaid dress. Im going for something fitted and tea length that can be worn again.
