When to Buy Your Bridesmaid Dresses – Wedding Timeline

We’ve made it easy for bridesmaids everywhere to buy their dresses online, but buying a bridesmaid dress isn’t like typical online shopping. Bridesmaid gowns are cut-to-order so the dresses have to be made before they can arrive at your front door. This allows our designers to offer a variety of styles and colors so you can mix or match to get the perfect dresses for your bridal party. However, it requires some patience
