I am trying to be a level headed bride in realizing that there will always be something (or some things) that will not go as planned in the weeks and months leading up to your wedding.
So…I have resorted to posting my frustrations in cyber space
Our wedding day is officially 19 days away which I think is an appropriate time to start worrying about the bridesmaid dresses not being in along with my wedding band that still has to be made into a guard. BM dresses are 3 months behind and wedding band is 1 month behind. I have been told (more times than I like) that this is a busy wedding season, when all I really want is a tracking number to both shipments.
Has anyone had any experience in coming up with a good Plan B??

Why are your BM dresses 3 months behind?? Where are they from? Girl, that’s just crazy … my plan B suggestion, let them pick their own dresses but give them guidelines (i.e., same length, stay within your colors). I know you are stressed but it’ll work itself out, can’t stress over something you have no control of. HeHe, easy for me to say Huh?! I’m 29 days away so I’d be freaking out too. But it’ll be ok! =)

I would scratch the dresses you have on order and go to David’s Bridal (online or instore) and pick something out. They can be shipping with 2-3 days. Obviously whoever you ordered with isn’t professional and you will have to fight for a refund. Did you use a local jeweler for your ring? I don’t really understand what you mean by “made into a guard” but if it is a separate piece that you can just put on for the ceremony, get the ring back from the jeweler and deal with it after the wedding. Good luck!
