When Should I?

How soon do you have your bridal parties? How far in advance do you purchase your gown? If it is purchased a year in advance will the color still be ok?

 You're supposed to buy your gown at LEAST 6 months before the wedding date. I've seen it done 4 months before the wedding, but thats really pushing it! My bridal party/shower is going to be a month before my wedding because my MOH lives out of town.

 I bought my dress in October, it arrived in January and I did my fittings in March and June for my July wedding.

My (surprise) shower was 3 days before my wedding, but only because my fabulous Canada friends were waiting for all my other friends & family to arrive from England
