I probably wouldnt order a year out, maybe 6 months at the most. In the next year, new lines will role out and you may find another Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that you really like. Also, with weight fluctuations, possible pregnancies, ect, it may cause other issues. I had my Bridesmaid or Best Man order their dresses at 4 months out, which has worked perfectly as the orders only took 2 months to come in and still allows adequate time for changes if needed.

I would say wait as well. If you are looking at a certain deisgner I would find out what the lead time is on their dresses. Some require 4 months and some require 2. That might help in making the final decision.

I would wait too. That is something can be done about 6 months in advance. If you are having some questions now, than I wouldn’ t take the risk.

We ordered ours about 6.5 months before the wedding and they came in at the end of July..so they still have 3 months to get alterations

Definitely don’t do it yet.  I would wait about 6 months before.
