My wedding day is August 11th 2012, and i already have my dress……i am really close to my final choice for the bridesmaids dresses, but dont know really when i should order them.
i mean, all 4 of my girls are aged between 22-26, none of them have children, but ordering them a year out….is that temptting fate? i mean at some point i am sure one or two of these girls may become pregnant, given there ages. so do i wait for a while, or do i just order them now, with a slight chance that they may not wear them due to pregnancy.
how soon did you order them?

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.
