Wedding dress shopping

I’m getting married in May 2024 - about 18 months from now. Is it too early to start trying on dresses just to get an idea of my style?

    My dress and veil took 7 months to arrive… so I wouldn’t say it’s too soon.

    Congratulations!!!

    I personally think that it's never too early to start looking at dresses, and even trying some on to see how they feel, you never know if you'll actually like a style until you try it on! It's honestly when ever YOU feel like you should be looking at dresses! I got engaged in April 2021, bought my dress August 2021, and I'm getting married in May 2023.

    Congrats! I got my dress in June! A whole 14 months before my wedding. However, I started looking at what i wanted as soon as I got engaged! It's never to early to start looking!

    I got engaged Feb. 2018, and had my dress in my possession by March of 2019 lol...and I have yet to walk down the aisle. I still love my dress whenever I put it on, and know it's still "my" dress. I even model in bridal shows on the side, so have tried on LOTS of different gowns since I bought it, and have no regret, tho now I am thinking I can justify a reception dress since I bought my gown so long ago.

    Never too early, I bought my dress August 20th and it won't be in until March, then bring it for Alterations in May, wedding is in September, if that gives you an idea.

    Depending on the store, the dress, I would start shopping.

    I've seen a lot of people here talk about dress regret because they bought their dress so early and then during the long planning process, they see new designs come their way. If you're that type, I suggest waiting it out.

    I agree I think it's a good idea to get an idea of what you like however...I started about 15 months before and literally changed my dress 3 times lol BUT I am just that kind of gal, a little undecisive at times. I totally think you can find something you love and end up sticking with it but my advice is if you do then stop looking because it can be torture and can drive you nuts!

    Congrats! Its never too early to start dress shopping. It's exciting and fun. Plus you never know how many shops you may visit with a specific look, only to go in a completely different direction. I started a week after i got engaged. Lol. Have fun!!
