- Wedding: October 2011
I had really hoped to never have to write a bridesmaid rant but here we are…
I gave my girls a first week of June deadline to order their dresses. Well, that came and went and neither bridesmaid has done it. Even ordering in the first week of June we were going to be pushing it (I believe delivery date was mid-late of Aug). I sent out a mass text the week before the deadline just reminding them that the cut off was approaching. One bridesmaid texted me back immediately and said that she hasn’t gotten a chance to get up there but she would asap. Ok, fine, no biggie. The other bridesmaid didn’t return any texts. Come to find out her phone was turned off so I resorted to FB messaging. Still nothing. She finally got her phone turned back on and replied saying that she would do it when she gets paid (NEXT Thursday… 2 weeks after the deadline). Now I’m starting to stress.
My MOH already bought her dress but the salon we went through won’t order the dresses until everyones order has been placed (so that they’re from the same dye lot). The girls don’t even have to pay the full amount upfront. Only a deposit is required to order ($50). I just want to go order the dresses for them but FI won’t let me. I know the first bridesmaid will order hers asap but the other… I’m not so sure about. She’s not the most responsible when it comes to finances so I worry that she’ll even do it. I guess I just have to wait and hope for the best but I can’t let the other girls dresses be compromised because she’s slacking.
We’re now less than 4 months out and the dress order hasn’t even been placed. I’m a ball of stress but trying to remain as calm as possible. Just order your f’ing dresses ladies!!!
