Find the Shoes: Even if you fall in love with the perfect pair of four_inch stilettos, don't subject your girls to torture. If you're choosing the shoes for them, comfort should be the top priority. Then find a color that will complement the dress__metallic hues are a great option. Another (and more preferred) option is to tell your bridesmaids the specifics (color, open_ or close_toe, for instance) and let them find the perfect pair__some might already have it in their closets.
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.
