Allow about two to three months for the dresses to come in, and an additional four to six weeks for alterations. Alterations typically take only two weeks, but a second fitting (if necessary) will add a few weeks. Also, don't assume that every girl will be able to get to the tailor the day the dress arrives__be considerate of their busy schedules.
Consider the Season: It's really important to make sure your bridesmaid dresses match the season you're getting married in. If your wedding is in the height of summer, you may not want to dress your girls in long dresses made from thick and heavy material and winter weddings may not be the home for mini_dresses with no cover_ups.
