When did you buy your wedding dress? I tried a couple on last Sunday at a wedding fayre and came away feeling abit deflated an feeling frumpy! Today my friend took me to a shop just to look and try on to get an idea of styles that suit me. Well I found a dress... It's amazing,I didn't want to take it off and now I'm googling it to find the best deal. But I'm not getting married till March 2020. I feel it's too soon to buy yet find myself hoping it's still around next year.

Hi I'm not getting married till August 2020 and have already brought my dress. Brought it last month! As soon as I seen it i loved it and it was a bargain price. The dress is discontinued so I didn't want to let it go and not be able to get it closer to the time. So glad I did, but at the same time I'm wondering whether I should have waited. The h2b has told me the type if dress he would like to see me in and it's completely different to the one I've brought so doubting my choice even though I love it. Just hoping I don't change my mind nearer the time. I'd suggest wait a little bit to make sure it's "the one" and if you still love it get it x

Be carful buying too early I brought mine in 2016 I get married this year. The fashion changed and I felt I’d brought it was too early. I’ve now purchased another one and struggling to sell the first one. I’d wait x

I bought one last year for my wedding in August. I then had serious second thoughts and ended up buying a new one so I’d just say to make sure you’re sure! xx

If it's THE dress, I would buy it. You just have to make sure you stay the size you are now if you do. I bought mine before we'd even set a date as it was perfect! Getting married next month and it still fits!

Hiya! My wedding is October 2020 and I bought my dress nearly 2 years ago. Honestly it's the most beautiful dress and I'm in love just as much now as I was when i first tried it on and on my wedding day I know il feel the same. And I'm so glad I got it when I did as it's discontinued and there will never be a dress like it. When you know, you know!

I've bought mine a couple of weeks ago and getting married in 2020. I knew I'd found the one!

I'm getting married June 2019 and I ordered my dress 2 weeks ago. If you've found your dress, does it matter when you buy it?
Worth considering how you would feel if when you want to buy it, it's no longer available.

My dress was the first thing I found and I don't get married until December 2020. I say when you know it's the one, it's never too early.. At least that's what I've been telling myself anyway xx

If it’s in a wedding shop then you will have regular fittings so don’t worry about sizes and things! I bought mine in January and not getting married till April 2019! She told me if I’m planning on losing weight the dress can be taken in 2 dress sizes without losing its shape so that’s fine for me!! If it’s the one buy it you might never feel the same in another dress xxx

A plus point to buying your dress early. Very few if any other brides will be wearing the same dress as yourself.

I bought mine a year and a half before the wedding, but just aswell as it took 9.5 months to make due to all the beadwork best feeling ever wearing it on the our special day xx

I brought mine 2 years ago and I’m not getting married until next year I found one I loved and the woman said it wouldn’t be around when I would normally buy my dress so I went back the next week and got it I’ve still been looking at dresses now because I cant help it but I haven’t found one I love as much as mine and my dress is nowhere to be brought now so I’m glad I got it when I didn’t
