When should you pick out bridesmaids dresses?

sustainable wedding dress and slip satin bridesmaids dresses

How many months in advance should you buy a bridesmaid dress? Well this really depends on the brand you are buying from and their lead times, but at Rewritten, we stock all of our dresses so no need for the 3-4 month wait like other brands! You can order from us and receive your dresses in 2-3 days.

Our collection includes 18 colours - 3 styles in satin and 6 styles in crepe, perfect for mixing & matching. Our collection also features our brand new Brooklyn midi dress in Blackcurrant & Chianti satin, perfect for the Christmas party season!

You can visit us in our East London showroom for a fun filled trying on session with your girls, and most brides and bridesmaids tend to come 6 months prior to the wedding. Even though we stock our dresses and you can order and receive them within 2-3 days, we do advise giving yourself enough time to enjoy trying on the dresses and making your decision. 

What do I need for my appointment? Do I need to wear a bra when trying on a bridesmaids dress?
These are questions we always get asked so here are our top tips on what to bring with you to your appointment:

  • Wear the underwear you would wear under a dress. We recommend seam free knickers and if you usually wear a bra, bring one with you! Strapless is best for trying on different styles.
  • You may want to bring a pair of shoes with you, even if they are not exactly what you're going to wear on the wedding day. If you plan to wear heels, then anything with a bit of height will help with trying on dresses in your appointment.

If you're not able to visit us in our London or Manchester showroom, you can easily order online and have the dresses shipped straight to your door. Check out our Rewritten playlist on Spotify and get the tunes on at home!
