Well there are many places you can go to. Set up a budget on how much you want to spend then I recommend finding a shop that will allow you to try on dresses to find what you like that's in your range and go from there. I went to two shops before I found mine and actually the owner found it for me. I told her what I liked and she pulled it out. Once it was on I just knew it.

In the US no-I went into one without an appointment and to the other I made the appointment a week beforehand. I live in a rural area so getting in wasn't a problem. It did take me 6 months to get my dress in, it depends on the designer and shop though. I ordered mine, some you can get off the rack but I am fairly tall and very thin-so that makes it harder. My friend bought hers off the rack right before her wedding it was beautiful on her, she had a three month engagement so ordering was not an option.

I managed to book an appointment at a dress shop in manchester 2 days in advance. I then booked another 24 hours in advance at a sample sale. This is where I got my dress. I wouldnt leave it much longer as if they have to order it in it can take a few months and then you have to have time for alterations. The best thing to do if you want to loose weight is try to get a dress with a lace back so that you can take it in or out easily.
