can you just order her dress to fit her in January, and she can have it taken in if she needs it?

If the most important thing is to have your friend standing up for you on your wedding day, I’d not worry about it and let her choose a coordinating dress that fits her, wherever she is at, next spring.

If the most important thing is avoiding more drama (don’t know the ins and outs of the situation, but you alluded to something) I’d take her to lunch and tell her how much it means to you that everyone is able to enjoy your celebration, and that with her impending bundles of joy (twins!!), as her friend first and foremost (not as a bride) you think it might be easier on her if she can relax that night as a guest. If she happens to say that she would really much prefer to be your bridesmaid because she loves you and is looking forward toit, my advice regarding the dress situation still stands. When we look at other people’s photos, we see details and props, but when you look at your own you’ll just see the people you love…not matching dresses.
