Hello fellow brides!

I'm currently working out Bridesmaids dresses! Our wedding is August 21, 2021 and I'm curious if anyone has any advice or would like to share their experience with ordering bridesmaid dresses online. I'm worried about the time frame and how long it could potentially take for their arrival in the mail.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    You have more than enough time for online orders though I wouldn't wait too long. I would try to get them into your girls' hands no later than June so that they can go get alterations done in a timely manner. Most online bridesmaid dresses can be done within 3 months.

    If you're ordering from places like Azazie, Birdy Grey, JJs House or any e-commerce that's based in China, review sizes very carefully. Most For example, my future sister in law (who will be the Maid of Honour) normally wears a size 8 for standard department store and Canadian retail dresses but she had to get a size 12 from Azazie. Another bridesmaid normally wears 4 but had to order a 6 in order for her bust and hips to fit properly while needing to take in the waist to match her "4" size. These dresses are made for Chinese bodies, which are typically slimmer with less curves.

    Also, some companies will make you pay duty to ship to Canada while some have Canadian warehouses that negate that so you'll have to research to make sure. You may find a dress for $100 that could end up being like $170 due to duties and international shipping. It's still more affordable than a brick and mortar store dress but don't under-budget too much when you look at these prices.
