    Just to ensure you have enough time to allow for alterations and I guess to allow time to order things in…other things I havent considered, etc haha. Whats a good time frame to work with?
    Ive been engaged since late Aug 2012, and the wedding will be Feb 2014, at first I thought id wait until about mid 2013 before I started thinking about it. But time flew by and im getting excited!
    I have in my mind the type of dress shape and silhouette. I have began to search the style online and I have a magazine clipping of what im looking for too.
    So do you think its still a litte early for me to organise the first dress shopping expedition? Or wait a few more months?
