Really depends on where you ordered them. I see some posts on here that it takes over a month. I ordered the ones for my bridesmaids off Nordstrom and they had them within 5 business days. Heard others pick them up off the rack.

My wedding is two months out and one bridesmaid just ordered hers and had to get it rushed because they say for Mori Lee it takes three months. Another bridesmaid of mine who ordered six months ago got hers in less than a month. But it is bridal busy season so I’d push her to order sooner than later.

fiona1992:  All 3 of my BMs’ dresses (from DB) took about 3-5 weeks to come in.

DB said about 3 months, but it actually took less than a month for all 5 to arrive.

Why don’t you look on the David’s Bridal website??

They have a lot of dresses that are quick ship and will arrive in under a few weeks.

DB said 14-16 weeks for mine, it’s been three months and I still don’t have them. Shpiping time varies by dress style and color at DB

fiona1992:  I used to work there.  As long as you’re getting an in stock dress in a non custom coor(for example, the Vera dresses in Vera colors, not Vera in DB colors) you should be fine getting the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses

I ordered mine from Davids Bridal and it wook 2.5 months. They said that the dres had to be special ordered in that specific color. I would try ot get your bridesmaids in for fittings as soon as possible.

With David’s it usually depends on if they have that dress, in that color, in that size in stock. I’ve had dresses from them arrive in less than a week, and others in over two months. If you’re concerned, I would rush it. Also keep in mind you might need some time for alterations. David’s usually needs more time with alterations than an independant seamstress.

You really need to call DB and ask them what the latest you can order and at what point with it need to be rushed.
