Im going to a sample sale tomorrow and will be trying on dresses for the 1st time :o)ll But the wedding is not until May 2011. Would it be silly to buy anything if i do see something i like.I know what im like when i see something i like-i have to have it there and then-thats what im worried about.

Im mostly concerned about storing the dress until the big day, and about changing my mind!

The changing my mind is whats holding me back a little too. Think theres some trick with a duvet cover for storing the dress.

I started looking for mine early as I wanted to save money by buying in the sale (which only happen twices a year). If you start looking in the shops now and find your dream dress it gives you plenty of time to get it cheaper. I tried on lots of dresses but kept going back to the same one I saw a year ago that was way over my budget. However, I'm now just after getting it for 800 instead of the 2400.00- very happy. *)

Personally I'd think it's too early. I'm getting married next May and ordered my dress about 2 months ago. Couldn't imagine having it nearly a year at this stage. Think I'd be a bit gone off it by now if you know what i mean.

I had no need to fear-the dresses were not nice-well not on me anyway. They werent what i was looking fo at all and they were so big on me that i couldnt see any shape to me at all-real bridal shop next week to try on a dress i really love!!
