I have no idea about the bridesmaid dresses because my girls all ordered them separately, but I do know that I had a 4 month engagement and the dresses were picked at the end of November and all 7 girls had them by February 14. 

My wedding dress we rush ordered and it took about 2 – 2 1/2 months to come in. I can’t remember exactly but I do think I had about 6 weeks of alterations time before the wedding.

My dress took five months to arrive.  The bridesmaids’ dresses were ordered by the end of November and arrived in March, I think, so about four months.

I had a custom gown made which was ordered 11 months out but from when they started to make it, it took about 6 months.

The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were bought from a local clothing shop. One of them had to be ordered in which took 5 weeks

I ordered my dress in November, and it is due in April (5 months). They originally quoted six months so I’m lucky because my engagement is only 6 months.  My sister ordered her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in December, it is due in February. Wedding dress is from a bridal shop, Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is from David’s.

I bought my dress in June and it’s due to come in probably by January (AUGH!)

Haven’t got to Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses yet but I think it’s usually around 2-3 months.

I also bought my dress from David’s – it took 2 weeks to come in from the time I placed the order. I’m going to pick it up tomorrow 🙂 They originally had told me 3-6 weeks sot it was super quick regardless.

For the bridesmaid dresses – I’ll have to let get back on that. Going to go order them tomorrow or next weekend.
