    That is beyond frustrating!  try to keep your blood pressure down.  if the dressmaker finishes, great – your Bridesmaid or Best Man is in the wedding.  if not, then your Bridesmaid or Best Man is a guest.  but don’t ask her to step down now.  if the dress isn’t ready by next week, then she’ll have no choice but to opt out.

    And yes, you do have 8 more days to go… hope she can make the dress in 8 days, she should give all of her attention to this one dress until she’s done!

    If the dress maker hasn’t even cut the fabric yet is it possible to get it back and have yours do it?  Or find someone who sews to make it?  Normally most dress patterns really don’t take a lot of time to sew.  Can you talk to your Bridesmaid or Best Man to put some pressure on her dressmaker?  I would have hoped that your Bridesmaid or Best Man was clear that she needed her dress by a certain day.

    Eight days until you guys leave for Jamaica? I would ask her to call the dressmaker she is using and push her to get the dress done and make sure it fits properly before you leave. 8 days should be enough time, but this seamstress needs to be pushed! 

    Other than that, try to relax. If the dress isn’t ready for the wedding, then she isn’t a bridesmaid, she will attend as a guest. If this happens, just have one bridesmaid walk with 2 of the groomsmen down the aisle. Uneven wedding parties are common now and although it wouldn’t be your first choice, it will all work out okay.

    I’d leave this one up to your Bridesmaid or Best Man.  I imagine most people know she is in it and if she suddenly isn’t, they’ll find out on their own.

    Just print programs once the dress is done ;o)

    I feel like we’re missing part of the picture here.  When did your Bridesmaid or Best Man give the seamstress her measurements/fabric?  Is this your BM’s fault or the seamstress?
