How many bridesmaids do you have? Maybe you should just go with one of them and your mom. It’s too difficult trying to coordinate a large group. There will be many more fittings.

cupcakemuffinandpeanut:  I can’t imagine waiting 2 months to try it on – you’re being far too patient with them!

You don’t need them all there – it’s just trying it on. Just pick a day and whoever comes, comes. If they can’t make it, their loss.

I agree with PP, pick a day and go. If they come they come and if they don’t oh well. Personally, I would rather only go with my mom vs an entourage. When I was a bridesmaid I did not go with the bride to all those things either as I had no interest. It didn’t mean I wasn’t happy for her but that stuff just isn’t fun to me.

cupcakemuffinandpeanut:  As far as I know, this is how most people do it. The most recent wedding I was in was my brother’s in 2008 and my SIL had 4 bridesmaids. 2 of us went the day she went to get her dress and we got our dresses that day too. The other two just were told what to get after that.

There’s also some websites that help you find a common day to meet (or set up a google doc with a list of days and have everyone vote)

I’m a bridesmaid for my BFF, and I haven’t seen her dress since she bought it. I’m not sure why the bridal party needs to go to the fittings.

cupcakemuffinandpeanut:  I get a bit annoyed when adults make a big deal of their birthdays. Every weekend is the weekend after someone’s birthday (or someone’s sister’s birthday, etc). Besides, her birthday is one day, not an entire weekend.

As I understand it, you want to schedule it Sunday, after she parties Saturday night? Yeah she can manage that. If she can’t get there because she’s too hung over then it’s her problem not yours. 

Stick to your plan. Tell her it’s the only time that works, you’ve been waiting 2 1/2 months to see the dress, and she can always see your dress another time.
