So, I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding that takes place in 13 weeks. I am on crutches until at least next Thursday. We (the bride and other bridesmaids) thought the dresses needed to be ordered 8 weeks out. NBD, I planned to go in 2 weeks and get mine. Another bridesmaid went tonight to get her dress and they told her that because of the specific color, our dresses need 12 weeks to arrive and 1-2 weeks to be altered depending on what needs to be done. This means that tomorrow I'm going bridesmaid dress shopping on crutches.
