I’m starting to panic. Two of my bridesmaids have paid their deposit and are waiting for BM #3 to order her dress so we can get the same dye lot. BUT, BM #3 is going to be 7 months pregnant and the wedding and needed a different dress.
I am hoping she will get measured and ordered before next week, I am starting to get nervous.
Is anyone else still waiting to order? It takes 3 months for their dresses to come in but I know BM #3 is going to need to have alterations and possibly a panel put in her dress.

We did ours at the end of January. I was an ordering nazi, and went with all of them. I’d stay on her about ordering the dress!

We ordered ours at the end of January too. I took them all as a group because I was also having my first fitting that day. You don’t have to panic quite yet, but I’d definitely push her to do it by the end of the month.

3 of the 5 girls have ordered theirs. It’s getting frustrating. Keep bugging them, we’re nearing the final deadline before salons start charging rush fees!

none of the girls have picke anything yet. They are probably just going to go off the rackswatchmismatched styles but if you are ordering you are cutting it close with less than 6 months to go.

I’m an august bride and we ordered ours in December and they are slated to ship at the end of April, so you probably want to get on your 3rd BM about getting it done. Offer to go with her to help pick a style and get it done.

Mid-June, and mine came in last week. I would stay on her and get it done.

5 out of the 6 girls already have their dresses because they were ordered during Thanksgiving and just need alterations. The 6th just ordered her dress a month ago.

My wedding is before yours (June 24th) and we got our order placed last week. We were told the dresses should come by May 24th, possibly sooner. That only gives us a month to do alterations.
The sooner the better. Get on them and make them go soon. You don’t want to have to worry about them not having time for alterations later.

One girl has her dress and the other two are still looking. I’m not too concerned…

My three girls just ordered last weekend. They’re due to arrive the beginning of June. Thankfully the store does alterations on site.
But yea, i’d just be honest with her, exactly what you told us, that with her alterations you want to ensure that she there’s enough time.

We have ordered one, but 4 other gorls haven’t. I don’t think there is anything to panic about yet but it is quite annoying to have that one thing not crossed off the to do list.

Ugh.. I only have one girl who ordered her dress already. Two of the non-orders are my sisters! I am going to have to give them until next week because we have known what the dress is for a little while.

I sent her an email last night and am going to call her today. She has 3 kids and works as a vet, so she’s away a lot of evenings. I really hope I can get ahold of her right away.
