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.
Decide on a Dress: Once you've found your favorites, finalize the dress with your bridal party. Email photos to the group for their opinions. And don't feel you have to bring everyone to the store with you. Your girls will appreciate that you want their input, but they might be happy to skip the chaos of all of them cramming into a small shop, and you can skip the hassle of trying to coordinate everyone's schedule for a shopping trip (not to mention everyone's clashing opinions).
