So, I know I’m like a year and just under a month away from my wedding date, but I tried this dress on in July and fell in love. I knew it was the one and I went back today when I had the money and put the down payment on my dress. I know everyone says to not do such a thing too early, but I’ve trier on other dresses and this just was the right one! So, I went and put my down payment on it today and will have it some time in December! I really can’t wait. I also picked out the bridesmaids dresses today. So, that’s another exciting bit.
Congratulations its beautiful! And don't stress about the time. If you love it, you love it. I bought my dress in june of last year and I'm getting married in 2 weeks. So with even more time than you. I still love my dress and the way I feel in it.
Gorgeous! And it's not too early at all. Great choice.
Thanks, I just have heard a lot of people advise against getting your dress so early because your taste might change. I don't necessarily agree with that though because when you know, you know! I had changed my mind once before, but that was because I had never tried the dress on and decided I didn't want to get something only to not like the feel of it later. So, I did change my mind, but not because my taste changed, but because I wanted to assess the feel of the fabric and everything!
I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the deep V in the back, but I actually found I loved it! Now I'm trying to find a corset to go with it. Someone suggested a nude colored bra that blends well with my skin, but I kind of like the feel of a corset better!
I'm having a fall wedding in Vermont. I know October isn't particularly cold there, which is why I loved the lace for the sleeves because it allows for some breath ability, but it also will keep me warm. I'm going to probably get a little throw over just in case though! I'm also going to be getting a corset to go with the dress because I feel it will work better with the dress. Also, when I tried on the dress I wore a corset and found it to be rather comfortable.
Agreed! I was originally going through a company called Anomalie, and they have a great service, but they are pricey. They quoted me at 1100 and I ended up finding something I adored for only 549! Don't get me wrong, they provide a great service, they send fabric samples and stuff, but it doesn't give you the same feeling as actually trying on the dress!
So pretty!!! Looks perfect on you!!
And no, it’s not too early!!! You love it and that’s all that matters!

I have heard of them and it's a great option! Especially for people more creative than me lol. But I ended up liking a silhouette I thought I didn't want so in person try ons was also the right route for me.
