Mine came in from Alfred Angelo yesterday! I know we’re super early, but we knew what we wanted and got on it.  So yay! 🙂

Yes, they are all ready to be ordered/paid for except for one girl who lives out of town. She needs to get her measurements and send them in. We cannot finalize the order until all girls have their measurements in.  They told me to have them all ordred by march 24 for my 9/24 wedding in order to make sure we will have them on time.  It might just be the dress line we chose, so no worries yet!

@yellowlace: They told us to have them ordered by early April, and then later said it would only take three months for them to come in. I sometimes wonder if anyone knows, lol.

We have half of ours ordered and the other half have appointments before April 1 :).

We just did ours, I would definitely finalize that soon!  You want to allow enough time for alterations!

We have a set of emails going around trying to decide what to do.  It looks something like this:

Entangled: so, um, you guys can wear 1 dress, or 1 color and many styles, or just different shades of green.  I don’t really know anything about dresses, so please tell me what you want.

Bridesmaid C: we could just wear Jets jerseys.  Those are green.

Entangled: dude that would be awesome.  but I don’t think Fiance would marry me if we all wore Jets jerseys (he’s a Patriots fan).

I think it about went that far.  Then I showed them some pictures of mismatched green dresses and everyone thought the emails were funny, but no one bought any dresses.  I’m pretty sure everyone is going to buy something at Target in August or something like that, but part of the reason I want to do something mismatched and let everyone be last minute is b/c my Maid/Matron of Honor is due to give birth in May so her size now is probably pretty different from her size in September.

I ordered my girls dresses about a month ago, and they are supposed to come in in May.. It was a big task I wanted to get off of my list. Plus we ordered them online, so if there’s any big issues, we’ll have time to fix them (hopefully!).

I’m letting my girls buy their own dresses. I just specified what length (cocktail) so there was some uniformness, but that’s it. They’ll each be a different fall color, so there has been some discussion back and forth, but that’s it. It was so much easier for me this way since 2 live in different states, and all are different shape/size. I am doing so much of the wedding DIY, that I didn’t want to even think about their dresses once I was done with mine. I know they’ll give me final approval on them before they buy them, and as long as they don’t look like hookers I’ll be fine.

My girls ordered theirs in Feb. They should be here in June around the same time my dress is ready for fittings.

I was going to let all the girls pick their own dresses in a length/fabric/color combo, but they all wanted the same one!

We just picked the dress out today! Ordering it this weekend. 

 We are doing apple slice as the color. My original green was going to be chartreuse but that seems to be super difficult to find & that was close to it.

I am going this weekend to David’s Bridal with my girls to order their bridesmaids dresses and the flower girl’s dress. Not sure about her dress yet, but my bridesmaids will be wearing three different style dresses from the same line in the latte color and cocktail length.
