    We are obviously wanting to space out payments as much as possible and also get things early on so we aren't rushing at the end but we are worried that bridesmaids and groomsmen will change shape before the wedding and then we would have to pay ou tmore to get alterations done.

    What did everyone do? TIA x

    I got my bridesmaid dresses about 17 months in advance.... I was quite lucky though in that all 4 of my bridesmaids are teeny tiny with no weight to lose and certainly wouldn't have put any on as they've been the same size since I've known them, which has been about 8 years. Two of them were ordered from China so I ordered them the size up just in case, turns out they were far too big and needed altering but I much preferred that than stressing about them being too small.

    We bought the groomsmen suits quite early on as well but I can't remember exactly which point. It was probably about 9/10 months in advance. They all fitted lovely on the day and none of them needed alterations.

    We bought my FG's dress about 2 months in advance.

    yes, we will be waiting for flower girl as she will only be two at the time and little ones grow so quickly, I have one bm who is hoping to have a breast reduction but has no idea when and that will definitely change her shape, another one that wants to lose weight and another who has not long had a baby so who knows if her body will change soon. groomsmen wont be as difficult but i do want to get bm dresses first so we can colour match the ties.

    I think I will leave it til after xmas but by that point it can't really wait much longer.

    Thanks Flossie :)

    I got my dresses for the girls from l!ght !n th3 80x, and the suits were hired from a local firm.

    I ordered the dresses in standard sizes in the April and arrived in the May for the wedding in October, and then I got the suits sorted in the July time I think

    I purchased my bridesmaids dresses a few months back. They are a corset style back so we have a bit of room either way! Ive hired the suits as its easier for me that way. No need to worry about the men loosing or putting on as my other half weight always goes up and down! X

    I think I will go for hired suits Leanne, will be easier that way, none of the men who are in the wedding are suit kind of guys so probably wouldn't want to keep them in any event x

    We have just ordered 2 of our bm's dresses - as they are not likely to put on or lose too much weight. Whereas my MOH is planning on losing about a stone in weight - so wont be ordering her dress till May next year.

    Our wedding is November 2017

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan
