1. The Fitting
Experts will tell you that fit is everything. The most expensive, designer gown won't be flattering if it doesn't hug your body just right.
If you start your wedding dress search early, you're more likely to get a sense of a price range and be able to buy your dress on your budget.
3. Less Stress
Procrastination is stressful through and through. You're worried when you're not looking, you're worried when you're looking, and you're worried you won't make it in time. Save stress by getting a head start.
4. Plan B
It sounds terrible but it's always important to plan for the worst when you're dealing with major life moments like a wedding. Just in case the first dress doesn't work out, leave yourself a way out.
The wedding gown is one of the bigger single items that you need to purchase for your wedding. Getting the purchase done early allows you to adjust other things in your budget. If you splurged, you can cut back on the flowers. If you saved a ton, you can hire the band for an extra hour.
