It’s a fairly basic style, so I’m sure DB will either keep it in stock or have something very, very similar available. Generally, ordering 5-6 months before the wedding is plenty–people tend to gain and lose weight, and you don’t want an ill-fitting dress. Most Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses only take 6-8 weeks to come in, so I’d personally wait. 🙂

Tell your problem bridesmaid, “This is the dress, please order it,” when the time comes and don’t let her bully you. If she can’t afford it, she can step down.

I think it is probably a bit early too…just in case people gain or lose weight or even if you change your mind!  It will give your girls more time to save too, although I would let them know the price range you are looking at so they know what to expect when the time comes.

I would hold off on ordering quite yet. You’ve got plenty of time and the style is something that you could easily find somewhere else if it were for some reason discontinued at DB. I would also hold off because YOU may change your mind. I’ve changed my mind countless times on details for our wedding. Everytime I am thankful that I never committed to anything because I would definitely have regretted some of my initial choices. That being said, I think this is a great dress and it is very classic, so it being discontinued shouldn’t be a worry of yours. As for the bridesmaid, there are very, very few Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that are under $70. I would talk with her. She has PLENTY of time to save up for the dress and still have it ordered on time.

Depending on what color you want.  The extended colors need at least 3 months, I believe it was, to insure arrival.  Their core colors are 2 months orders.  At least that’s what they told me.
