Average Time To Bridesmaid Dresses To Arrive?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm wondering if anyone knows the average time that bridesmaids dresses take to come in? I want to make sure I have enough time for mine to make it, but going shopping with my MOH is turning out to be like pulling teeth. I don't get it, I'm even paying for it pretty much :(. Maybe I'm just being paranoid and she actually has legitimate reasons to be unable to make it every time I ask, but it gets a bit discouraging. Anyway, rant done, I just don't want to leave it until too late!

Yes it will depend on the store and/or designer. I got my BM dresses from David's Bridal and it was about 3-4 weeks for them to come in.

@@TinkerSofi great question! I'm assuming alterations (in case needed) will also have to be factored in)?

 

And feel free to rant, that's what we're here for :) I hope she does have a legitimate excuse but I would be frustrated as well

I got ours from davids bridal. They told me 12 weeks but came in 6-8.

Hopefully you can figure out a mutual date soon!!!

Good to know! Thanks girls. Yeah, she's in school, I figured that she would be less busy now that the semester just started but I guess not and I don't want to wait until May when she's totally done. I just don't want to be cutting it too close because yeah, alterations might need to be done, and I might have to send one dress to Colombia and one to Argentina for a couple of the girls to their dresses altered over there before the wedding. That could take another 2-3 weeks :S. The wedding is still over 6 months out but time kind of flies.

 

I can always go with my future sister in law and we'll pick hers, her sister's and my Argentinean friend's. Then I can go with my MOH to pick hers when she has time. If push comes to shove I'll just pick the dress myself and too bad, although I doubt it will come to that (hopefully haha).

2013 I ordered my dress from David Bridal in January and it came in May. Like a week before the wedding, which was in another state.

 

My 4 girls are all in different states and ordered from there in mid November, and they were told mid February. No sign of any dresses yet.

 

Depends where you order but in recent years it's been taking a solid 4+ months. I was in several weddings in 2009/10 and David's bridal took 2 to 3.

 

I was just talking about this yesterday with my MAIL because it's a total racket. They don't have someone hand making them, and there's only so many dresses and styles. I strongly feel it's like the price premium you pay for anything wedding or baby!

I'm guessing that it takes longer if you want your order for spring/summer because they get more orders. I better get cracking! haha

Yep - I'd agree!  I was in an Oct wedding in 2010 and it came in about 8 weeks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
