When Should You Start Shopping for a Wedding Dress?

Like all aspects of wedding planning, the timing of dress shopping varies from bride to bride. In most cases, the selection process begins soon after the proposal. Most bridal experts suggest beginning your quest for the ideal dress 9 months to a year before the wedding, in order to leave plenty of time for shopping trips, fittings, and alterations. The decision of when to begin shopping for the perfect wedding dress is entirely up to each bride, but it’s best to leave an abundance of time to shop the best bridal boutiques in your area.
