It depends on if you get them off the rack or have them ordered.  My wedding isn’t until Oct. 2010 but we had to go ahead and order our’s because they take about 6 months to come in, and you should also allow time for alterations.  I personally think that when you find a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress you love, you should move on it.  You never know when it will sell out, be discontinued, etc.  Also, from personal experience, I wouldn’t wait on them to lose weight.  I would have them buy a size that fits and then have it altered down if necessary.

  • Wedding: April 2010

My wedding is April 10.  A few of my BMs tried on dresses (they also want time to lose weight), and liked a few.  However, the person we were working with told us that we don’t have to order the dresses until January, at the latest.  She also said that the styles won’t change until January, so we can wait.  We’ll probably order the dresses in November/December, just in case. 🙂
