This one is not vintage in style, but it does have a couture feel to it; from Yoox:

Are you getting married in a church?  If so make sure your bridesmaids shoulders are covered.  (They can just do a shawl for the ceremony).  Most churches require women to cover their shoulders and sometimes knees.  My fi is also from Italy.  I love the wine color for the bridesmaids.  It will look so pretty.  What part are you getting married in?

Where I live, it is fairly usual to have local seamstresses make the dresses; it gives you the opportunity to have control of the quality of the fabric and show them exactly what you want. I specifically mention fabric because textiles of poor quality can ruin the best design!

jred:  You might have more luck if you search for “orchid”, “radiant orchid” or “magenta” as your color. That would be a better match than red wine, berry, sangria.

I think you’ve got enough time, yes, if you work with a local seamstress and your bridesmaids give you their size information promptly!  I don’t live in the States, I live in Puerto Rico.
