My Mom keeps asking me when she should get her dress- I told her I have no Idea (our wedding is 7months away) I told her I think that she can get her dress whenever she wants. (She's not a person that fluctuates on her weight nor is she dieting to try and drop down a size)
But then she thinks it's to early, I told her it might be, but if she looks she can see what styles she likes and hopefully can get a great deal, that is if she wants. Especially since both me and my brother are getting married next year (me in spring, he in fall) and the expense for the weddings, they're giving us both money, and gifts- that we know that we're going to get, and potential shower throwing etc.
When did your mom/fmil get their dresses? Also do you know where? I know my mom looked at DB and was almost in tears when she saw some of those dresses as she felt they looked too old for her (which probably didn't help as when we were there she was broaching her 50th birthday even though she clearly looks like she's in her 40's still). I just don't know what kind of advice to pass on- never been a bride before.
