I would order them now.  lt could take up to 5 months for them to come in, and you will want to give your maids about 2 months to arrange alterations.  Also, it takes maids a few weeks to get all their measurements in.  You may want to allow them a little time to get their deposit together, if they need it.  I would do it soon.  My BM’s dresses took 6 months to come in, so I was glad I had the extra time.

Wedding dresses can take 5 months because shops usually do one huge order before wedding season (May) but bridesmaid dresses vary. Mine should only take a few weeks.

I’m getting married the same day you are!  We are going to try to go by the end of this month to look at dresses.  I only have three girls and I don’t care what the dresses look like, just that they are navy, so I’m hoping it’s easy to find something!

You should ask the place where you are ordering the dresses. The place we went to said it took roughly 4 months, and that we should order them by the new year (the wedding is July 4th) so everywheres can be different, so you should double check with the store!

@DiamondnLovey:  It’s really going to depend on where you’re buying from. Deisgner bridesmaid gowns are similar to designer wedding dresses, need to order with enough time to get the dresses made and shipped.

Options like DB, which is where my girls got their dresses, I had one that was in within a week, the last one took about 6 weeks. Really just depends on what route you’re going!

We’re going in January for my June wedding. I will have them all pay and order the day that we go shopping.
