    It depends on where you are getting the dresses from and what dresses you get.

    My bridesmaids just ordered their dresses and they were told it would take about 5 months for them to be delivered and then another 2 months for alterations. So that’s 7 months! My wedding is 9 months away, so they will be fine, but you might want to start looking sooner than later even if it’s just getting ideas of what you want. Then you can talk to wherever you go and see how long it typically takes to get those dresses in.

    Good luck!

    CanadianBeeMTL :  As the pp said, it does depend on where you are ordering the dresses. If you want standard “bridesmaid dresses”  from a “bridesmaid dress” designer, they all have their time frames on their websites.

    If you want to order a summer dress from a traditional retail online site or brick and mortar store, look now while they are all on sale.

    You may want to check out dresses sooner but wait to actually order, as long as you don’t end up with your heart set on one particular dress. That way you can have an idea of color and style but still watch for sales/clearance deals. If you order too early, there’s also a bigger risk of a bridesmaid’s clothing size changing.

    We ordered our bridesmaids dresses, moms dresses, and grandmothers dresses last week and we are getting married September 2017. I was with my mom and future mother in law when I saw a bridesmaid dress that I loved, I got all of my bridesmaids together and the dresses were ordered they take 6 months to arrive and then they need to be altered.

    Ive always heard 9 months is ideal, 6 months is okay and 3 months is rushed.
