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 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!
