One of my BM’s keeps changing when she can get her dress and i want all of them to go in the same day so they all come in at the same time. So last week we were suppose to go get them ordered by she said she couldnt that she could thursday thenn today she told me she cant thursday that it will have to be friday. I keep telling my Maid/Matron of Honor and other Bridesmaid or Best Man different dates and i feel bad doing that to them for one other person but dont get me wrong i love my Bridesmaid or Best Man but What would you do? One more problem that i have is that the dress takes 14 Weeks to come in and my wedding is in August.

They don’t all have to go in on the same day. My BMs ordered theirs on all different days. The bridal shop will hold the orders until all the girls have paid their deposit and picked their size, so the dresses will be manufactured in the same lot and delivered together.

Give her a deadline. Stop letting her dictate your deadline for you. Let her know that the final day to get her dress order in is Friday. If she doesn’t get it in by then, you can’t guarantee she’ll get it on time and she’ll have to order it on her own. Then don’t stress about it! Right now, she’s dictating to you when she can do this. You just need to put your foot down and say, “XXX is the deadline.”

I don’t think they need to be ordered on the same day. I agree with Jacqi, the shop will just order them once all the girl’s have paid.

This happens all the time. Getting all of the BM’s in one place is difficult to do. Schedules and obligations get in the way. I think I’d give her a deadline to go alone. I’d say, you have to order your dress by April 3rd, or whenever. She should be able to find a time to go between now and then. Trying to find a time that coincides with everyone else may just be impossible. I gave up on that ideal and it still worked out. I did have to poke and prod a couple girls but they all have their dresses now.

Agree with PPs that not everyone has to go the same day. It’s really difficult to get a big group of people all together on the same day.

The only problem is where im haveing them order the dresses from told me that get all my Bridesmaid or Best Man together then come in. And thats it that to gethem all in here at once and that it will take the dresses 14 weeks to come in so i was like ok then is so going to be stressfull and i was so RIGHT! I know its totally stupid but thats all i can do so im kinda freaking out. I hate weddings lol its just all so stressful I feel like pulling my hair out haha.
