Pick Your Bridesmaids: When it comes to picking your bridesmaid dresses, it's almost impossible to decide on a style when you don't even know who your bridesmaids are. Make sure you pick your bridal squad first _ once you know who your special girls are, it will be much easier to decide on the dresses.
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.
