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.
If your bridesmaids are paying for, or contributing for their own dresses, think about what each can afford. One may be able to pay for a seriously expensive dress but that may not be the case for all so putting a budget on it can be a real helping hand for the girls who have less to fork out. For advice, be sure to check out our hitched budget planner _ it can really help you decide what to spend and the areas to spend it on.
