    I would say June at the latest, but that’s seriously pushing it.. like she had be pretty open to store samples that aren’t matchy matchy if she’s gonna wait that long [in case something should go wrong].

    For my October wedding, we are dress shopping in April/May and will purchase as soon as we find the dress my girls want to wear.

    Yeah that’s late. I was in a wedding where we ordered them a little over four months ahead of time and we were on the verge of having to pay a rush fee. Most places I looked at suggested ordering them six months in advance.

    ETA: we’re looking at Alfred Sung dresses for my friend’s wedding and three different salons told us to order six months in advance.

    @TwoStatesBride:  ya if they’re spread out it could be risky….I too had 6 girls, some not even in my country. My wedding was august and I got my girls to order starting Feb….some I think went into march, and then there was one in april and one in may…. the latter ones BARELY came in time and one needed to be shipped for alterations, I was kinda panicing. It turned out fine, but if I had a choice to go back I wouldnt have let them order later then end of march/mid april at the LATEST.
