Wedding Dress Conundrum

So here's the question on the table: now or later? I know that for many brides one of the first things on their list is to buy their dress. Me being me you would have thought it would be purchased by now. Truth be told, I've only gone to try on dresses once in 10 months that I've been engaged (and we all know how poorly that went). I knew in the beginning that I had time on my side so there were no worries. Well folks, we're now 11 months out (thank you reminder email from the knot on Monday :))and it feels like the last thing I want to do right now. Manly because every bride wants to feel gorgeous & svelt on their wedding day. Let's just say there's nun o' that going on over here.

I'm worried that if I go shopping and choose a dress based on how I look now, I'll miss out on something spectacular that will look great on me in a few months. Am I crazy?

I've started running every day which has helped to shed a few pounds, but I have more than just a few pounds to go. I had a shock to my system when I entered college and I've never fully gotten back to where I want to be. I know that its insane to try and reach a goal of high school weight, but I want to reach of goal of just plain feeling great.

So should I just bite the bullet and start trying things on now? Or is it okay to wait until say August (8 months out)?

Try on things now!!! :O) You'll thank yourself later when you aren't paying extra for a rush fee to get the gown in time for your wedding.

Also, you need to consider what happens if you don't lose the weight? I just got married, and I definitely know what it's like to have a wedding as workout motivation. But in reality, I didn't lose pounds. Sure I toned a little, but it's wasn't a night and day difference by any means. You should find a dress you love on you now, and then when you do lose the weight, you will love it even more on you when it's all taken in and fits like a glove!

Even if you do want to wait a couple more months to make a decision on your dress, you should try on dresses now just for the mere fact that you only get to live this time in your life once. Try on dresses and have a blast!!! :O)
