Time It Well: Whether your bridesmaids are buying designer or off_the_rack, or renting their dresses, you should set and stick to a timeline to ensure no one is scrambling at the last minute. For a designer gown, it will take two to three months for the order to arrive, and then another four to six weeks for any alterations, so six months is an ideal time frame. Because off_the_rack dresses may sell out quicker, as soon as you find a style you love, you should have your attendants purchase it. Renting a gown can take at least two weeks to receive, so make sure they plan accordingly.
Think about the complexions and hair colours of your bridesmaids when choosing a colour, and bear their body shapes in mind when looking for styles. For example, if you want a strapless style, bigger busted bridesmaids may have trouble getting enough support, and if you want short skirts make sure your bridesmaids are happy to show off their legs. You can choose different styles or colours to suit individual bridesmaids; this is currently a fashionable option.
