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.
As well as doing some of the leg_work in looking at dress styles, they can find out whether the bridesmaids are really happy with the final choice. Your bridesmaids are more likely to tell your maid of honour if they don't like the dress than to tell you. Don't take this personally; they just don't want to upset you in the run up to your big day.
