My girls ordered them super early (like a year in advance). Better to early than too late.

Mine did it in April for an October wedding.  Alterations are in 2 weeks.  I like it to be a little closer with the alterations so everyones weight is where it is most likely going to stay.

Mine ordered in March I think! They all came in in may or June!

My girls also ordered theirs a year in advance, but we didn’t go with traditional bridesmaids’ dresses. We got them from Anthropologie and they only sell their styles for a couple of months, if that.

When I was in my sister’s wedding, we got them about six months in advance to allow for time for alterations. I got my dress about four months in advance for another wedding I was in. Our alterations were messed up for my sister’s wedding, so thank God we ordered them in advance!

Your problem is basically that you have more time than you thought, so I wouldn’t tell your girls to order them any later. It never hurts to have them too early, although I understand your frustration with the people at the shop because of their confusing advice! Just breathe… 🙂

My BMs and JBMs have ordered their dresses. David’s Bridal gave them a deadline of July 31. Only 5 people haven’t ordered yet. I am mad because one person is complaining that I have them ordering too early, but my wedding is less than 150 days away and around the holiday season. I may have to kick them out if they don’t do it soon (I can understand if they are waiting for a payday to order, but ordering late because you don’t feel like it is wrong).

October??? That seems really late to me.  I’ve been to three different salons and they all suggested the end of August – and that is when I asked them to order their dresses by.

I think I ordered in late February for the beginning of July.  They came in in May.
