I was just wondering about how long it takes for bridesmaid dresses to come in after ordering them? My wedding is in January and I was going to try to get them ordered by mid-September at the latest but I have a pregnant bridesmaid who wants to wait longer and I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t turn into a disaster with her without a dress. Also, does anyone know if they can figure out how big someone who is currently four to five months pregnant will be when they are eight to nine months?

Talk to your bridal shop about timing–it is usually 3-4 months. Sometimes it depends on the vendor you order from. There are also several lines that have maternity bridesmaid dresses. It is impossible to tell how big someone is going to be that far along–so much depends on how they carry. A regular maternity shop may be able to help more with that answer. Definitely pick something that is NOT fitted:)
Once I was in a wedding where 1 bridesmaid was 7 months pregnant and one was due at any time. We made our dresses, so there was a lot of flexibility. That could be helpful if that’s an option for you.
