Hi I have been 3 times to try on dresses but have not decided I have 9 months before my wedding :)

I found mine about 18 months before. I didn't intentionally want to buy it so soon but I loved it :)

We are getting married a year to the day he proposed. I had my dress sorted within a few weeks.

Some dresses can take up to 10 months to be made but you most also take fittings into consideration. I went just over a year before. If you are buying off the peg then it shouldn't really matter so long as you allow time to go shopping more than once in case you don't find the one or need alterations.
