I already assked four girls to be Bridesmaids in our wedding and just got a call this morning that one will be backing out. Another girl I asked hasn’t called me since monday and cannot buy her dress now. We are buying the dresses and I pcked out two colors for them to wear. The maid of honor in blue and the others in yellow. I have two who have their dresses and now there are two girls who wont be in the wedding as planned. Now my idea for color on the dresses wont work out. Also the dresses are discontinued and there are only a handful of them left…….What can I do without having the girls get differemt dresses and spending more money? The idea on the blue and yellow dresses was so that the maid of honor was recognized as special. Now I have one yellow and one blue. I think this will look stupid with only two girls. I don’t have anyone to ask to be bridesmaids and the dresses are getting sold out. I have no way o even guess what size she would wear if I asked my fiance’s sister (she doesn’t really want to do it). Oh no Oh no. What can I do now?

I don’t think it would look stupid to have one blue and one yellow dress. If you want to call more attention to the MOH you could also give her a different bouquet. Try not to stress about it too much because that won’t help you at all.
Could you have a jr. bridesmaid who would wear the same color as the non-MOH bridesmaid? The flower girl could also wear the same color of the non-MOH.
That’s all I can think of now but I’m sure the hive will have more ideas for you! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

Are you saying that you have purchased extra dresses? Or that your MOH purchased a blue and your other BM purchased a yellow? A couple of things:
1. You could go back and ask the MOH to wear yellow. And distinguish her in another way. (Different bouquet, jewelry, a sash or embellishment on the dress.) Or if you prefer have the other BM wear blue. But either way, I would NOT ask either of them to pay for another dress. It isn’t their fault that this situation happened.
2. You could leave as is, and have the one BM wear yellow (with a blue bouquet) and the MOH wear blue(with a yellow bouquet). Really this would look cute. And better yet, no mess, no fuss, (hopefully no tears). Problem solved.
3. Why not check again on that Bm who is still hanging? If money is the issue, maybe you could privately offer to pay for her dress.
4. If you’re not keen on asking FSIL, and she isn’t into being in the wedding, I wouldn’t bother. But if you decide to go down that road, I guess I would ask her her size before buying the dress.
I’m sure it will all work out. But even if you end up with just the two girls, I think hte easiest, and still adorable idea would be to have one in yellow and one in blue.

My MOH has her blue dress and the other girl has a yellow one. I thought having them both wear the same color. My other bridesmaid thinks it will be fine, but I am not sure. I was thinking alternating the accessories, (blue shoes and flower with yellow ane vice ersa with blue) The problem also is that they are noth pregnant now….so who een knows if the dresses they got will fit them next summer.

Well I guess you have to throw your hands up and say something will work out. If they are both pregnant now, I think they will have plenty of time to fit back into that dress. Maybe swix months, or more. Also, is it their 1st pregnancies? It’s a little easier to bounce back the fewer pregnancies you’ve had. Just my own experiences.

Its the First pregnancy for one and the second pregnancy for the other. I was messing around on David’s Bridal and putting the dress your wedding application to use. At least the two I he have dresses. I am sure I can help them accessorize to make it look ok. and if the groomsmen they will be walking with match them it will be cute. I like the idea of matching the flowergirl…..I am just worried about it looking terrible or them not fitting their dresses. As long as I fit into my dress I am doing good I guess.

What about alternating sashes? Like the girl in the blue dress gets a yellow sash (and yellow shoes?) and the girl in the yellow dress gets a blue sash (and blue shoes?) so they match each other better?
They might need some spanx but they’ll have enough time to get back into them i think! And the sash may help too
