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.
Be sure they'll look good: We've all heard about brides that dress their bridesmaids in unflattering gowns so they don't outshine the leading lady, but if you want happy bridesmaids and great wedding pictures you'll want to choose dresses that make them look good.
