I wanted to order my Bridesmaids dresses online today as they have a sale on this week but i have just found out that one of them has just started a fitness regime to lose weight.
I have asked her to what her goal weight/size is so i can either order in her current size and have the dress taken in or order in a smaller size and have it altered if it doesnt fit or whatever.
She has told me that she doesnt have a goal weight or size but is just going to keep going…how on earth do i order a dress for someone who doesnt know what size they will be!!
She wants us to go to the shop to try them on but i just realised they are online exclusive so cant do that, plus i have an appointment with my florist in a few weeks to select flowers and want to match the colors and my fiance wants to order the cravats to match too.
i have no idea what to do!!

You should order the dress in her current size, and have them taken in if needed. Guessing on a goal weight size is dangerous and is just going to stress you out. What happens if you order a size to small and it can’t be taken out (like many Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses)? Then you’re just screwed.

order the dress what size she is today, that way you know it will fit, then if she does lose weight it can just be taken in, Even if she had a goal weight it doesnt mean that she will met the goal so just order her size that she is now

@ChocolateLime: How long do the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses take to be made and shipped to all of your girls? I am using Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from Weddington Way and the Alfred Sung Dresss my girls are wearing take about 3 months to be made and shipped. So I think it depends on how long the dress takes and you also want to give your girls enough time to make alterations to their dresses if need be. If you are on a time crunch I would ask her point blank how much weight she thinks she will lose and just have her order the dress a little bigger so it can be brought in. 🙂

@lovelylight99: i am hoping to buy them froma department store. i phoned the store last night to see how long they will stock them for and she said until May so i need to order them before then. I will see what their sizes are then and if they lose more weight they can be altered.
