    There’s a blog post from me going up today that’s kind of along these lines.  🙂

    I’d go and pick up the dresses as long as you were confident that they’d properly fit. I only have two BM’s, but they are budget-concious and would totally understand. Could you call them and tell them what’s going on?

    I voted to wait, just in case the dresses don’t fit! If they have to have a ton of alterations, you might not end up saving money (I spent almost as much on alterations as I did the dress for my sister’s wedding).

    Even when you get measured for a dress at the bridal salon, the dress doesn’t fit.  I think that’s their conspiracy.  🙂

    I guess it would depend on the girls.  Do you know their messurements?  Do you understand their body types?  If you can confidently say yes to those then I would go.  I can easily look at something and know wether or not my bff can wear it.  When my Maid/Matron of Honor went shopping, we picked a ton off the rack for her to try on.  I knew as soon as it came off the rack that it was going to be her dress, and it was.

    If you already have their measurements, not just their sizes, I say go for it. Take a tape measure with you and measure the dresses. Err on the side of larger.

    But, look carefully at the design and construction of the dresses to find ones that will be easily altered.
