Alfred Angelo & David’s Bridal have the best selection in my area, not sure where you are though.  They have several colors & fabrics to choose from.

@MeredithLee11:  Honestly, as long as they are at least similarly formal (like if you had a sundress you probably wouldn’t pick a floor length satin bridesmaid gown) then I think you’ll be ok.

I also think you have OOOOOODLES of time if the date you have posted is correct.  It took about 12 weeks for the dresses we ordered to come in from DB, and we had about a month left over for alterations.  I’d probably wait until late summer or early fall to even look at dresses as some styles and colors may be discontinued.

When it comes time to look at dresses, maybe ask your BMs what style they feel comfortable in.  Some people are really self conscious and might not want a strapless dress, others may hate their legs and prefer a long style, etc…  I actually let my BMs pick their own style, cut, and fabric as long as it was all the same color.  It didn’t bother me at all that they didn’t all look the same, because in real life they are all nothing alike.  They each have separate, indiviudal tastes and budgets, so I let them choose according to their preferences.

Oh, and don’t go through DB or AA for alterations- see if you can find out what local shop they use and go directly there… it’s SO MUCH CHEAPER!
