However, such early enthusiasm can be disastrous, explains Bridal Guide Magazine. The ideal time to shop is around 8 to 10 months before the date, and starting more than a year in advance is definitely a bridal blunder. Most of the time, a bride is not financially ready yet to buy a gown that early. Experts suggest having the rest of the wedding details in place first before shopping for a gown, since various factors about the ceremony, such as location and season, can influence the style of the dress.

Shopping early for wedding gowns can also lead to brides buying a heavily marked down dress. This can especially happen during sample sales, which are becoming popular among brides these days. However, gowns in sample sales are just that— a sample. Most of the gowns have been tried on numerous times, and could have been torn, stained, or otherwise damaged during the process.

Though it can be a challenge for some brides-to-be not to try on wedding gowns, it is best to wait just a bit before doing so. Waiting for the right time to shop is similar to saying yes to true love. As Robert Browning once said, “I was made and meant to look for you and wait for you and become yours forever.”
