Hi i'm getting married next sep away and am still waiting on everything to be confirmed. I went looking at dresses the other day just because myself and my mother were passing bridal shop (not planned.) anyway i seen a lovely dress that was on sale @399 and now I'm thinking maybe i should have bought it? do you think it's too soon I wasn't originally planning to look at dresses till after xmas but can't stop thinking about this one??

If you like the dress then you should book an appointment and try it on. I'm getting married at the end of Aug next year and as I have a fractured spine I've been putting off buying and even looking at dresses until early Jan. I've called about 10 different shops and they've all told me the same thing that I've left it far too late and should have found and ordered my dress back in September/October. I'm not going to panic though :eek Best of luck!

If you like it then go with it. That's how I found mine - wasn't looking for a dress just came across it one day! I still sometimes think that maybe I should've tried more dresses but I think I'd probably always have that doubt even if I'd tried 100 different dresses!! :o0

Hey just wanted to let you know I am also getting married next September and I have already ordered my dress, tried it on once...cried, tried it on again and it felt like an old friend...know that sounds really weird but when you know you know as cliched as it sounds! I'm just delighted to get that bit boxed off, though I don't feel the same need to buy the magazines now...booo!!!Deffo try it again and see how you feel it's such a complete bargain!!

I don't have anything sorted about dresses yet! Mine or bm! Really need to get my ass in gear! Went into a shop about 3 weeks before I had dd and like the op saw a lovely dress that was reduced down to €350! The shop assistant got me to try it on but with a 37 week pregnant bump was very hard to tell! I was tempted to but it though but I didn't in the end because I wasn't sure if I loved the dress or the price tag! :o0 She told me though that they can have a dress ordered in within 6 weeks though so am definitely not going to panic! Might get a chance to go looking at some more in early December and I'm getting married early July! I'm sure there are places that will tell me I'm mad for leaving it so late but dd wasn't planned so there wasn't much I could do about it!

[/quote:fwfg09as] That's MENTAL.. :eek Sure that's nearly a whole year!!! I'm getting married in mid July and haven't ordered mine yet.. Have tried on a few alright but in none of the shops I've been to has anyone told me that I should have ordered by now, in fact most said if I've ordered by Xmas that would be time enough!!
