BM Dresses... how far in advance?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering how far in advance my BM's should get measured and the dresses ordered. I have 3 sisters and they are all my BM's. One of them just had a baby so she wants to lose weight before her fitting, the other has always been a yo-yo when it comes to weight so she'll want to wait till the last minute. And the 3rd sister... well, for my other sisters wedding she ordered 4 sized smaller than her actual size thinking that she would lose the weight, but she didn't, and she was POURING out of the dress. I'm so nervous about this. I know that I'm still 8 months out, but when is a good time to bring this up to them?

We ordered 6 months out from the wedding date. It is going to take 12-14 weeks for our dresses to come in. They'll be here in November sometime. I would probably let them know now, that in two months or so you guys will have to order so its not a surprise to them when the time comes.

I would get them when you can as some dresses are seasonal and you may get a better price off-season or at the end of the season.

 

In my case I had to find a dress that fit a whole range of bodies - from regular size to plus size, so for me getting a dress in the color I wanted was a chore.

 

If you've found a dress and they have it in all sizes, that's good. I can understand wanting to wait for the weight loss because you then may end up paying more in alterations if you buy too big or too small. (Sorry if I wasn't any help) - it is a hard judgement call. I would definitely give them a timeline for their weight loss so that you have enough time.

I have found the dresses, and they are separates which everyone seems to love so the bustier ones can get a bigger top than bottom. I know they are going to hate me, but I should give them the heads up.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
