Thank you very much for this post! As a former BM and current bride, I’m trying to keep in mind all the things that were difficult with the last wedding as a BM so I can avoid doing those same things with my girls!  Sometimes we all need a little reminder, and I know I appreciate it!

As a bride and as an upcoming bridesmaid, I point this out to my Bride-friend often. It will save a lot of stress and headache to order things at the same time, together. Bridesmaids love the wedding part of it, but some are just not as passionate about “your” wedding as you are or they may not have time. Make arrangements for the items you want everyone to wear or have. Maybe collect the $$ upfront and place the orders yourself. 

I will be doing just this.

Go ideas for us to order them if we could.  I know I have three really responsible girls and semi responsible.   I’ll have to think about just ordering hers for her.  I have thought of that but now might make that a reality. LOL

Pshew! I feel you on this. I combed JCrew daily looking for the most amazing silk dresses on sale for my BM’s. Waited until they went on sale, checked the sizes, called them when they were on sale AND had an extra 40% off. Two bought it. One didn’t. Now they are back to full price (from 59.99 to $99.99 to $179.99) and that’s not the worst. They are out of her size AND color!! But the wedding is not till July. I’m calm, I’m the wind. Nothing, nothing shall bother me. Whooozaaaaa!!

I think this is especially true if you have a BP member who might be hard to fit (in terms of dresses). We had to get a second dress for the BM’s since one didn’t order on time,and when it came in it didn’t fit or even come close, she missed the deadline to return and to exchange, and the dresses had to go in a whole different direction just to find one that would work for her. It can really be frustrating, so what you’ve said is a great reminder.
