Im so confused. Im getting married October 2020. My mom and i stopped into davids bridal yesterday. She wanted to look at mother dresses. While there i ended up getting a dress appointment for myself next weekend since they are having a 10% off sale. My mom is excited to go. I asked my grandma to come with and she said it seems so soon to go looking for dresses...my wedding is in one year. Most people are saying its to soon to go, but then on the other hand some people are shocked i dont have my dress yet While at davids bridal i asked the consultant when its recommended to buy a dress. She said 8-12 months before the wedding. The only you wait some dresses might not be able to be made in time and the next months will be the busiest in the store as well. So with that info im confused why some would think its to early to lool buy/look What do you think? Is a year out to soon to dress shop?
I think ur at the perfect time to start looking, i was reading a news story the other day apparently the older generations 70-80yo would just got to thrift stores a monthe before the wedding and just find the clothes there lol

Makes sense. My grandma is 89 and said years ago people who just go to jcpenny outlets and buy dresses there for $50 lol I told her some salons sell dresses starting at $1,500 needless to say she was shocked.lol
I got mine 12 months out. I got mine back a month after I ordered it. Now I am not stressed about my dress because I know I have it and I can focous on other things. I can also take my time getting accessories and a veil and make sure I have everything perfect. Im so happy I got mine 12 months out.
I went to DB in July to just look around to see what kind of dresses I like...I ended up buying one that same day! (I am also getting married in October 2020) so if anyone is "too early" it would be me...lol
My wedding is November 2020. I have my first appointment next month on my birthday. I figured that’d be an exciting birthday venture. I don’t plan on buying or purchasing till January 2020 only because my weight fluctuates and I’m hoping to slim down a little lol. But, no, not too early at all. It’s one less headache and you’ll give yourself enough time to shop around, settle on a dress, receive it (weeks to months) and alter it.

I feel even more too early. I bought my dress from DB in May and I am also getting married next October. It is tucked away in the deepest darkest corner of my moms closet until I start alterations. It only took about 1 month to come in. I was expecting it to take longer though. The good news is that I have my dress and have more time to really pick out the perfect accessories and plan other parts of my wedding. I am glad I bought mine as soon as I did.
I don’t think it’s too early at all! I got mine a month after I got engaged and 14 months before the wedding. I was just going for fun but fell in love. The dress will take 8 months to get in so I’m glad I went so early just in case something happens!
Def not too soon! They say 9-12 months out is a good time to look. I am October 2020 also and I just found my dress last weekend! They said it will take 6 months to come in. Some can take longer. People don’t realize how far out wedding planning should be. I read an article about handling unsupportive comments, e.g. “soon soon? or “so far out?”, that suggested politely tell people how far out places book and how there is a longer timeline for wedding planning. It’s not anyone’s place to make these comments, but low and behold, they do! Now that I have my dress, I feel like I can make more decisions regarding bridesmaids dresses, color schemes, and decorations. It sets the tone for everything else! Good luck at your appointment!
I got a wedding dress from david bridal and mine came in 2 weeks after i bought it. I asked the lady i thought it would come in 6 months or so, she said those are only for certain collections. Their brand usually comes in soonn. Just fyi.
