According to your header, your wedding is still 14 months away. If you started asking them this stuff 6 months ago, that means your wedding was 20 months away at that time. You want them to order their dresses more than a year ahead of time. You want them to decide on their make-up plans more than a year ahead of time. You want them to decide on accessoiries more that a year ahead of time. YOU are being unrealistic. Take a bunch of deep breaths, stop being a Type A overacheiving planner, and chill. You’ll be much happier when you do.

I think that everything you asked was easy stuff and they should have answered. It’s just rude. And ordering the dresses, umm yeah, that’s not good. I would call them and have a heart to heart, it’s time. Being a BM isn’t rocket science and I don’t think you are behaving like a bridezilla at all or asking for a whole lot out of them. Sorry, wish it were going easier.

Call them about the dress.  I think at this point, if they can’t get it, they need to stand down, unless you’re really forgiving and want to help them.  I wouldn’t though.  I’d be responsive to their needs early on, but cutting it this close without saying anything?  It’s their own damn fault.

Don’t book them any time with your MUA.  Simple as that.

And buy whatever jewelry you want.  Clearly they don’t have an opinion there.  Simple again.

It may be time to seriously reconsider the non-responders. We all have lives to lead yes but if they agreed to be a part of your day, the least they could do is respond. Its just common decency and respect which is sounds like these “friends” dont really have for you nor does it appear that they value your friendship. It really sucks to have to rely on these people so maybe you shouldnt.
