We were told that they needed to be ordered by Jan 31 for our july wedding.  So about 6 months out (depending on the designer!)  Since David’s is pretty well stocked, (I’d ask them first), but chances are they can order the dress in the right size around when she has the baby?

DB told me it takes 12 weeks for BM dresses to come in on order. We are going in next weekend to get them in time for alterations, if needed, in time for October. It seems like you could wait until Sept/Oct to order, but don’t know what to recommend for measuring your SIL…

@SoonToBeeMrsD: Exactly 🙂 That’s why I couldn’t quite figure out when she should be measured. How exciting for your family…you’re going to be an aunty!

DB ALWAYSSSS says it takes about 12-18 weeks to come in but in reality, they’ll be calling you up within 2 weeks to let you know your dress(es) is ready! My wedding gown was in, in 4 days and all my bm’s got their dresses with 5-6 days! Just so you are aware though, she may not fit into a dress like this with a baby belly. When I was pregnant with my son, my belly was very high and something like this would never fit me. You may want to consider a maternity friendly dress for her! DB can help you with everything, although I live in NY, I’m not sure how different they all are. 

 

Good luck with this, and PS… I would have her measured and get the dress ordered in about 2-4 sizes TOO large so it can be taken in IF NECESSARY or left alone if she is comfy 🙂 If she’s a size 2, she should order a size 6 and so on…
