We ordered dresses in August 2013 for my May 2014 wedding, which was early but I had a bridesmaid leaving the country. Dresses came in 3 months after ordering and one of the dresses (we did mismatched) is now discontinued, so I’m glad we ordered when we did! But as long as your chosen style isn’t at risk of being discontinued, you might have sometime.

I ordered a BM dress for a friend’s September 2011 wedding from DB in January 2011, it was in a month later. So I had it for months before the wedding.

ETA: Most places don’t want to even start alterations until 6-8 weeks before the wedding.

We just ordered our dresses for my June 7th wedding less than a week ago from the bridal salon and they said we had plenty of time. They should be in late March early April.
