Your not obligated to buy their outfits if you feel its out of you budget. The choice is made upon being family is gifting them for the day than giving any other gifts.
We always get outfits for the family only other than relatives who can get their kids outfits. The same applied for our MOHs as they bought their sarees for the wedding.
Hello Lindsay, Like the others said already. Don’t feel obligated. My bridesmaids purchased their own dress and shoes (both items totalled $83). While my MOH has yet to purchase hers, as she has a different style from the others. I gave them an option to choose a style as they knew the colour, however since they couldn’t find or decide, I gave them options and they chose from that.
What I am thinking to gift them is jewelry, while I’ll gift the groomsmen bow ties, pocket squares, and shirts. It’s best to focus more on your wedding dress and accessories.
You've got tones of time! Lace is always in!!! I was looking at all of the designers online to see what dresses I liked and what not before heading to the bridal stores. It's a good idea to see what's out there you know!
A year or so I think is a good time in my opinion. I went around the year and 7 month mark only because the dress I had in mind was still at the store and the consultant advised me if I really want this dress I should get it now because it was an older style from 2017 that was going to be discontinued soon. I've had my dress sitting in my parents closet for just over 2 years now because of postponing I can't wait to wear it!
You should give yourself enough time for it to come in and then if there's any alterations that need to be done, you gotta make that into the timeline as well. Usually 1-2 months for alterations from what I've been told

When do you think I should start looking? Cause I don’t want to be a forgetful bride and do it last minute that’s for sure! I’ve seen Yes to the dress and I don’t want to be that person
That's awesome! It's sometimes a great idea to go a little early to start and see what you like and don't like. Of course every designer will have different dresses coming in for fall/winter and spring/summer launches. I started looking right after I got engaged in 2017 but didn't buy anything until 2019. Luckily the dress that I was eyeing the very first time I looked was still in store when I went the second time. Just to also keep in mind some dresses take a bit more time to come in once you order them. Mine too almost 7 months for it to come in.
