Set the Budget: Between the dress, shoes, jewelry and other expenses, being a bridesmaid can really start to add up. When it comes to the price of the dress you choose for your attendants, be mindful of their lifestyles. A pricier option may be a financial burden for one or more of your bridesmaids so consider some cost_effective options like buying a dress off_the_rack, cutting the cost of alterations or deciding on the color and letting your girls choose the dress that fits their budget.
Ordering etiquette: It can sometimes take up to six months for orders to arrive and four to six weeks for alterations. A six to eight month cushion will give you and your friends ample time to find and order the dresses and get them fit.
