So i found a great Bridesmaid or Best Man dress at DB for my girls, they love it and we all love the cost!
My Maid/Matron of Honor is currently pregnant(due in Oct), my wedding isn’t until June of next year. She’s concerned about what size dress to order, shes not sure what size she’ll be post pregnancy.
Do you tink ordering the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in Mid to late January will be enough time? We were thinking that would give her almost 3 months after baby to see where she is at size wise and make an educated guest on size then.
She is normally a size 6 and is a workout fanatic so I’m sure she’ll be right around the same give or take by the wedding.
Has anyone ordered their Bridesmaid or Best Man dress from Davids Bridal? How long did it take to come in?

My wedding is in June, I’m having them go in August.
I think January is late … guess it depends on the salon/designer

I was in a wedding in June of last year, and I ordered my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress from David’s Bridal in January. It came in at the beginning of March.

David’s Bridal is usually really fast! I would say that’s fine! I do think, though, that you should have all your girls order around the same time because sometimes they discontinue styles with very little notice!

I’ve been a bridesmaid in a wedding where the dresses came in less than two months…and another where it took about 5. I think they advise you to allow at least 6 months, but you should check with the salon you’re working with to be sure. I’m sure they’d have some excellent advice for your bridesmaid in terms of what size she should get as well.

I went through a small boutique and we ordered right around April 1st for my October wedding. It’s now July and no word as to when they are going to arrive yet…sigh.

Thanks bee’s those were some fast responses! =)
@BellaDee: The first dresses we looked at we’re Alfred Angelo I believe and they recommended 6 months. I heard David’s was super fast compared to most though.
@Gemstone: Thank you! That’s what I was hoping for 🙂
@jo.lee: Good idea, Ill be sure to have them all order at the same time. I wouldn’t want to deal with that.
