how far out from the wedding -bridesmaids dresses?

Tue Jul 31, 2012 3:58 pm

how long before the wedding should you get the bridesmaid dresses?ive found a dress on lightinthebox.com that the 3girls all are happy with. Im not sure how long before to order it, incase it isnt there later, and i cant find something we are happy with?. I have 1 bridesmaid who had a baby in jan who wants to lose baby weight before ordering, so ive been putting it off only for her.... But i dunno...

I wouldn't like to order it any earlier than 4 or 5 months prior.... You'll be devistated if the girls dont fit because they've changed too much in that time.

We ordered ours five months out. Given mine were off the rack that was plenty of time. Be mindful that some companies do take a while to make and ship but I don't see any need to order more than 6 months in advance.

I agree with the others. You still have 12 months to go and a lot can happen in that time. e.g. someone falling pregnant etc. Plus, as a bridesmaid myself in a few months, I wouldn't want my dress ordered so early. It puts a lot of pressure to have to stay that weight for a whole year!

We ordered ours at the 6 month mark - knowing it would take 3 months for them to arrive from designer in the USA. That still gave the girls 3 months to organise alterations and to get one dress to the UK. If my MOH did not live in the UK and I did not have to send her dress to her...I would have ordered them around the 4.5 - 5 month mark.

My girlfriend who is getting married early October ordered her bridesmaid dresses from the same same website - lightinthebox.com - and it only took the dresses about a month to get to Australia..that including the time it took to make all 4 dresses and postage from China. Super fast!
