When do I start looking for bridesmaid dresses?

I am getting married in July 2009. I got my dress about a month ago; yes it is a little soon, but I fell in love with it. Now I am wondering when I should start looking for bridesmaid dresses? I don't know what is too soon or too late and I know you ladies are filled with great advice = )

You are so ahead of the game. I'm honestly getting depressed about how far behind I feel!

I would order them 6-8 months in advance. You can start looking now to see what styles you like, and ask the vendors when it would be best to order. You'll want to get them early so there's time for alterations, but I can't imagine you'd need to order them any sooner than 8 months before the wedding. Every vendor is different though~

You can start looking at anytime, but just don't place the order until about 5 to 7 months before the wedding. Most bridesmaid dresses take 3 to 4 months to come in and then you need to allow time for any alterations.

You can start looking for the dresses but I think you should hold off on ordering any. By then you might like a different (new) style or might need to make changes. I would stick to ordering them at the most 8 months before the wedding =]
