So… I ordered my dress (Yay!), and I think I’ve finally decided on the bridesmaid dress, but I’m not sure when to plan on having my girls order their dresses. I’ve love to get it done this month, but I they might prefer to do it later. Several of them have declared that they are working on losing weight before the wedding, and one of them is switching out her implants for some that are a little larger in a few months.
Do bridesmaid dresses take as long to come in as bridal? How many months before the wedding is safe for ordering them?

I’d say order them at least 5-6 months before the wedding.. My wedding is in September & I’m still just looking to find the best price & dress I want for the bridesmaid.

Mine came in in about 4-5 months, depends where you buy, but I’d say give it 6 months.

I called a few places the other day, they all said it would take minimum 3 months to order a dress…so b4 then 🙂

I was in a wedding last year and it took 6 weeks to get the dresses in.

I gave my bridesmaids a deadline of the end of February for a late August wedding (6 months in advance).
The last person to order did so on February 28th… the shop told her to expect it to arrive in early July. Seems like that leaves just enough time for alterations and not be too stressed about timing!
Every designer is different though so check with your bridal shop!
