when did you go dress shopping

 got engaged on May 2, 2010 and i went dress shopping with my mom probably 2 weeks after i got engaged and we went to David's bridal. I put on 3 dresses one was a fit and flare but i made my hips look big and i am only 5 2 and the second one had a low style back and i am very self consciousness about my scar on my back from a scoliosis surgery i had when i was 13 years old. my scar is very thin like a thin pencil line and i have 2 rods in my back. so i put on the third dress and fell in love with right away and i had the bridal moment.

DH got my e-ring in March of 2011 when we went to Chicago for a weekend getaway. He did not officially propose because he wanted to do it at a big family gathering so everyone could witness. I started dress hunting probably that same month. Me and DH went to a bridal show and on a fluke we stopped in David Bridal's afterwards to see what styles were out. I never had any intention on purchasing my wedding dress from DB. I tried on three dresses and fell in love with the one I tried on first. Unfortunately when I went back to purchase, the price increased and was out of my budget. So I went on the search again for wedding dresses again probably in like February - March 2012 timeframe.

I am going at the end of February early March.  I'm so excited!  I am thinking of videotaping it for my future mother in-law who lives in Tennessee!

This is hard to say because everyone is so different.


I got my first dress in August and when I went to check it in December I had lost so much weight it was unalterable


I bought dress number two in December and by January it too was too big.


Now I am on Dress number 3 and bought and had it fit for me, but I will be able to have a second alteration to this dress without diffiulty.


I would say not more than 4 to 5 months before the wedding.


MY BFF had the same issue as me she went from a size 8 to a size zero in 4 months and had to get a new dress 1 month before her wedding.


We both lost weight but for different reasons. Hers was stress and it turns out mine is Pancreatitis aggrevated by Lupus.

I went shopping about 8months after the unofficial engagement.  It was my intention to wait until 1 year out, but we were walking pass a store and my MOH really wanted me to try on dresses. Tried on three fell in love with my first original love I saw when I initially looked a year earlier online.  I purchased it about 6 months after that.  Now Ive lost 16 lbs since then and I havent tried on my dress again. I really pray that I dont have to buy another one and the alterations are not too expensive.
