When I went dress shopping for my BMs I was told that they should order their dresses no later than 6 months until the wedding. I’m getting married in April and they have until October of this year to order them. I don’t think the guys are supposed to order their tuxes until about 4-5 months out from the wedding. 

It never hurts to start looking early though. If your girls don’t change sizes often and aren’t expecting to get pregnant they could order dresses whenever they want. Personally I wouldn’t require mine to order earlier than the 6-7 month mark just in case they do gain/lose weight or become pregnant.

It’s certainly a good thing to think about. Most Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses take way less time to come in than the wedding dress. It will depend on where you get your dresses from so make sure you ask your bridal consultant.
