Ok, so I have a very large dilemma going on.. I’ve been hounding and hounding my bridesmaid to get her dress altered. My wedding is NEXT SATURDAY. Anyway, she found out a couple weeks ago that she needs to add a FOOT around the dress in order for her seamstress to fix it and have it fit her. Problem is, now she’s blowing it off like it’s not a big deal. Hello?! How does she expect to be in the wedding if she doesn’t fit in her dress?? Everytime I check in with her to see how things are going with the dress, her response is “I’m not sure” or “I’ll have to call her and see” but she DOESNT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!! I’m sick of nagging at her to get this done and get a move on, how do I get through to her??

make an appointment tell her when it is, pick her up, driver her there and make her do it?

Worst case scenario…she doesn’t get it done…dress don’t fit. She’s obviously lying to you and hasn’t taken it in, maybe $$ is tight, she can’t get there because of work or something else…fact is you cannot make anyone do anything, so plan ahead for contingencies and focus on the things you can control.

If she can’t wear the dress, then she has kind of removed herself from the wedding party. Don’t stress about things beyond your control. So what if you have uneven sides… so what if her name is in the program and she isn’t standing there. Who cares. Nobody will notice, and you won’t have to treat your friend like a toddler.

Thanks guys… I wouldn’t be too upset about it anyway if she ended up not being in my wedding.. she’s been a terrible friend lately.. the only time she ever contacts me is to talk about her boyfriend and her problems. Not because she wants to or because she needs to talk to me about the wedding. It’s always about her, and I’m getting fed up.
