Listen– a month out from your wedding, and someone who insisted they’d be in the wedding hasn’t bothered to pick a dress? I would’ve presed DELETE DELETE DELETE on here as a Bridesmaaid many months ago. I think you’re fine. It obviously wasn’t that important to her.

I agree with the PP, BUT if you didn’t want BM’s to begin with, would it be a big deal to let her wear something different if she doesn’t like it?  It doesn’t sounds like you had a vision of BM’s in matching pink taffeta or anything.

OK, if *you’re* being a bridezilla, then I must be the Evil Most Supreme B*tch Bridezilla From Hades! Because like the poster above, I would have just written her off when she couldn’t make time to pick out a dress. (I mean, when I was a bridesmaid, I was TOLD what I was going to wear, so she was already pretty lucky!) You went to the trouble to choose something you liked for your wedding–it IS your wedding, remember–so she can wear it graciously and be happy for you, or not be in the wedding.

@burger26:  No you are not a bridezilla.  She should have had her dress months ago.  And a month out, she should thank you for doing this for her.  And if she doesn’t like the dress too bad.  If she would have done it herself, she wouldn’t be in the position she is in.  There is not very much time left for her to dink around a find a dress “she likes”.

@burger26:  If she’s allowed to pick any dress off the rack, yeah, you should have let her do her own shopping. I mean seriously, this is your cousin so I’m sure she knows this is your third marriage, she probably doesn’t see this as a hurry up moment.

@burger26:  I like your FI answer and you are not being a bridezilla. My cousin just told me a few minutes ago she was in my wedding, I ignored what she said. I will address this afternoon when i feel like hearing her whine.

@burger26:  She insisted on being in your wedding and then showed no interest in doing any of the required activties, i.e. choosing a dress. I wouldn’t have had her in the wedding at all, so if anything you are being gracious as opposed to a bridezilla.
