Who knew you had to start shopping for a wedding gown so early?! Whether you try on one wedding dress or one hundred, most designers will require you to order your wedding dress nine months before your wedding day! Have you started looking for what you will wear on your big day?

Have you bought your wedding dress or wedding day attire?

    Our engagement is less than 9 months, so that wasn't really an option. We're getting married the first weekend of July and I'll start shopping for the dress in January. Hoping to get one from a second-hand bridal store

    Yes! I decided to take the risk and buy it online and it turned out great! I still need to get it altered though.

    Yes! I knew I wanted a non-traditional dress and thought it would take a lot longer to find actually. I found it almost immediately! ☺️

    I had a disaster budget - $200 - and developed a chronic illness during my engagement. I bought a mermaid fit dress right when I got engaged, became diagnosed 2 months later, and 4 months after that my body type was completely changed. I did not feel comfortable with my dress. I had $200 to spare and ended up in a quinceanera shop to find an A-line empire waist gown I am so much happier with. It’s much more flattering.

    I'm in the middle of paying it off right now. I'm getting it custom made through Anomalie but I'm not sure how long it'll take to ship.

    I bought mine almost a year before our wedding! My mom couldn't wait to go and made an appointment and I happened to find the one! So in love with it!
