Go shopping with your local Bridesmaid or Best Man now. I think about 6 months to a year in advance is good for ordering Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to allow for them to arrive and then possibly be altered. Ask her to try on the styles you are considering and take photos to show the other girls.

I was told at least six months as well. We are all going to the store today so that they can get measured and pay for them. My wedding isn’t until October 6th. I would have them order asap if I were you. Good luck!

You should check out your supplier’s time line.  I ordered Alfred Angelo dresses, which take about four months to arrive.  I asked my girls to order five months in advance at the latest so there’d be time for alterations.  To be honest, usually alterations on a bridesmaid dress are fairly simple and don’t take too long.

Do you have a designer in mind?
