Tips for Bridesmaids

Choosing aBridesmaid gown

When choosing a bridesmaids dress, take into consideration the height, body shape, skin coloring and personality of your maids. Remember your beloved bridesmaids will look better and have more fun in a garment that makes them feel comfortable. Also, keep in mind the time and style of your wedding. While bridesmaids dresses are important, keep the focus on the bride. The bridesmaids dresses should emphasize the beauty of the bride’s gown and not overpower it.

1. ORDERING A BRIDESMAID GOWN

The most important aspect of your bridesmaid dress selection is timing. Bridesmaid dresses take about 14-16 weeks to arrive once the order has been placed. Bridesmaid orders are placed once all bridesmaids have been paid in full and have confirmed or chosen a size. All delivery times are approximate, so be sure that you are allowing enough time for your peace of mind. Although it is a rare occurrence, the manufacturer can be delayed beyond our control. If you feel that you do not have enough time for your order, please contact the Normans bridesmaid department for rush order information.

2. MEASURING FOR A BRIDESMAID GOWN

Normans prefers to measure your local bridesmaids for the most accurate size suggestion. If you have out of town bridesmaids, we suggest that they are professionally measured at a bridal store.  Bridesmaid gowns tend to run small so keep in mind that the size suggested will probably be larger than her normal size.

3. ARRIVAL AND FITTINGS FOR BRIDESMAIDS

Once the bridesmaid order has been placed it will be approximately 14-16 weeks before the bride is notified of the dress arrivals. At this time, we will confirm any shipping information and pickup information.  Appointments are necessary for the bridesmaids department. Remember, out of town maids can order by phone, online at www.normansprom.com or email Christian at [email protected]
