I’m in the same situation. Three of my girls ordered their dresses at the same store I bought my wedding dress and the other two BM’s live in different states, hours away. Those two are ordering their dresses from local stores where they live. I am not too worried since all the girls have different style dresses, but they are all the same designer, fabric, color, length. I am content with my decision to have them get their dresses wherever they want because it is unrealistic for me to make them fly or drive hours just to get fitted and have alterations. There will be slight differences in color, but I don’t think it will be obvious. I think it also depends on the color of the dresses too.

My girls are wearing convertible dresses and the dressmaker said it’s best to have everyone order their dress the same day or order them all as one big order & collect the cash from your girls. I opted to place the order myself and collect money from the girls so I’d make sure all of them went into the same dye batch.

They all match perfectly. =)

Assuming they are all ordering from the same store in different cities… Could you talk to a consultant about placing the order at the same time at one store but having the dresses sent to the different locations?

Honestly, these days I think this is very much a line bridal consultants use to try to make sales.  Most of the dye mixing is now done by machine and there’s very little change no matter when the order is made.

I wouldn’t worry about it.

It matters on material. I know that satin can very from lot to lot. The dress lady stressed that they were ordered on the same day.

@Kewii:  nope it’s not.  i was a bridal consultant at DB.  i never had an issue with dye lots being an issue. 

i’ve actually had brides insist they be ordered at the same time to avoid this but i never suggested it or heard of any one who would.

@Utopia4us:  i’ve had more bridal parties order at different times at different stores more often than i’ve had them all order from one store at the same time.  i don’t recall a time ever where an entire party ordered from the same store at teh same time, in fact.

are you ordering from DB?  i have a thread where i offer to answer any questions a bee might have about DB. 

if you are, what dress and color?

@janetsnakehole:  Actually it is.  Just because you never said it, doesn’t mean bridal consultants haven’t said it.  I have heard it.  Many other brides have heard the same line.  It’s a sales tactic.
