    2 of my girls have ordered, the two others will in the next month. Davids Bridal said they should order asap due to holidays and prom season just to ensure everything is in place. The 2 that have ordered have already received their dresses, though!

    As soon as possible… we’ve been actively looking as of late! But I was told this past weekend it takes approx. 3 months to receive Mori Lee dresses…so the sooner the better. But I seleceted 4 months out…because that is the absolute latest we can wait!

    Mine ordered a month ago. I had one bridesmaid leaving the country and she won’t be back until the wedding and another who was going back to school and is super busy during the school year. They wanted to all go shopping together so we had to do it before school started again and my other BM left the country.

    My BM’s choose an etsy seller. I just ordered the sample swatches to see which Blush I want to go with.

    That should arrive in 2 weeks. All the girl’s are going to order at the same time to recieve a discount.

    They all agreed to order the last week in November. So I’ll place the order for them the first week of December after the Thanksgiving Holiday’s are over.

    Should arrive in 6 – 8 weeks.

    @DomesticDiva:  We’re doing the exact same thing as you — ordering Bill Levkoff dresses from The Wedding Shoppe. I was planning on having everyone order by the end of the year… I felt bad asking anyone to order right before Christmas. Hopefully that timeline will work out!!!

    @DomesticDiva:  Ordering in November does seem like would probably be the best idea — it’s crazy that we’re almost to November already! I have one bridesmaid who wants to get her breast reduction surgery done before the wedding and now wants to wait until March to have the surgery and wants to order her dress after the surgery… she needs the surgery, so I don’t want to tell her she needs to order her dress by late December at the latest, but she really does need to order the dress by late December at the absolute latest! I just keep telling myself it will all work out somehow lol!

    I had a May 2013 wedding and we went and picked out the dresses in November of 2012.  The girls mostly had them ordered by the end of November, beginning of December, because they all ordered from stores close to them.  I think the last one was ordered in early January, and my flowergirl dress was ordered in January.  Everyone had their dresses in plenty of time for alterations, etc.

    I’ve chosen my dresses, but it’s hard when the BM are not in town! I guess I need to have them order their Mori Lee dresses ASAP! Maybe I should have them just order from stores in their city?
