We were just looking at BM dresses for my friend’s wedding and we were told to order six months in advance. They told us it takes about four months to receive them and that you need to allow time for alterations. This might vary depending on the designer though (we were looking at Alfred Sung dresses).

I would have her go try them on in the next few weeks.

I ordered my bridesmaid dresses through Alfred Angelo, and I recommend about 6 months in advance.  Our dresses came in on time, but you want to leave a bit of wiggle room for any delays and to get alterations.  My wedding was in October and my bridesmaids ordered their dresses in mid-April.

I also had bridesmaid dresses through Alfred Angelo, and also recommend about 6 months to be safe. Good luck! 🙂
