FOCUS – Your bridesmaids will look better and have more fun in a dress that they feel comfortable in. Take into consideration body shape, height and personality when choosing a gown. Bridesmaids dresses should compliment the wedding gown, not overpower it. Always keep the focus on the bride.
ORDER – Your peace of mind is important. Order early enough to protect it. Bridesmaid dresses take 12-14 weeks to arrive once the order is placed with the designer. All delivery times are approximate and are not guaranteed. RUSH shipping is available at an additional charge. Orders are placed after all bridesmaids have been sized and paid 50% deposit.
MEASUREMENTS– Mimi’s Bridal prefers to measure all bridesmaids for the most accurate size recommendation. Out-of-town maids may call in their measurements after they have been professionally measured by a seamstress. Bridesmaid gowns tend to run small. Please keep this in mind as your suggested size will usually be larger than your normal size. Recommendations for your size are based on your current measurements. Changes needed in size after the order is placed, due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy or growth spurts are not the responsibility of Mimi’s Bridal.
FITTINGS – The bride is notified when the bridesmaid order is received. Bridesmaids may come in at any time for a fitting. Dresses are not custom made and my require several appointments to complete alterations. You should budget from $20-$75 from most bridesmaid alterations. Bridesmaid balances are due within 30 days of the order being received.
