Questions to Ask While Shopping For Bridesmaids Dresses

  • What size sample dresses are available to try on?

  • Are there color-swatch charts, so you can see what colors different styles are available in?

  • Can you and your bridesmaids look through the dresses yourselves, or are they shown by a salesperson?

  • How long does it generally take for the dresses to come in after they've been ordered? (average is 1 to 2 months).

  • Can the order be rushed, if necessary?

  • If you ordered your wedding dress through the same store, will your bridesmaids (or you) be offered a discount or free alterations?

  • Can the salesperson recommend any accessories to go along with the dresses? Does the store carry shoes and bags by the same designer, for example?

  • Will you ship the dresses to my out-of-town bridesmaids?

**A lot of bridesmaids dresses are now ordered via online stores so that it is more convenient for bridesmaids that are in different locations to get their dresses. A lot of these questions still pertain and are things you'll want to find out when choosing an online store to get your bridesmaids dresses from.
