- Wedding: March 2010
My Bridesmaid or Best Man just emailed me the other day and said that she’s really excited to order her dress for the big day but is really worried about it fitting her. Originally I had thought a good month to go order them would be May because I thought the person at the shop said it would take 3-4 months for them to come in. Then we still have alterations to do.
The problem is this. She’s having problems losing weight (and she’s a VERY tiny girl and doesn’t want to lose weight). She thinks it might be stress causing her to lose weight and she’s worried that if we order the dresses is May she might gain/lose large amounts of weight again but I’m worried that if we order the dresses in different batches they will be completely different.
So, here are my questions:
- One of my other brides is TTC so if they decide to order later and the other two earlier would it be ok because the colors would be from two color batches
- Or should I order them all later and just be on pins and needles about them coming in on time/being hemmed on time
- How far in can a dress be hemmed for a wedding without looking stupid? (I’m more worried about her losing more weight then gaining but I could be wrong)
