- STEP 3. BRIDESMAIDS who choose to pay 1/2 at time of ordering must pay the balance in 60 days.

We appreciate Brides very much who give us the opportunity to provide bridesmaids dresses. Brides who follow these procedures will have many fewer headaches. Always remember to follow up with your Bridal Consultant every 30 days to check on the progress of the order.
