- Wedding: September 2012
I picked out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in Feb for my Sept wedding, and the BM’s put off ordering right away. The Maid/Matron of Honor kept telling me it was ok, and that they would order in April. Then it was in May when the out-of-town Bridesmaid or Best Man was coming for the shower. This past weekend I went with my JBM to order her dress on Saturday, and the bridal shop said Alfred Angelo has been delivering dresses late. AA quoted a ship date that is 30 days before my wedding.
And the Maid/Matron of Honor still hasn’t ordered hers!!! I know that money was a major factor for the procrastination as she’s been unemployed for the past several months. I offered to cover the costs, but she wouldn’t accept. I’m so happy that she just landed a job, but she took a mini-road trip for the 5days before to celebrate. And she starts today, so said she’d go on Tuesday after work.
I’m crossing my fingers that the dress comes at least 3 weeks before the wedding, but what if Alfred Angelo is still behind??
I don’t want to lay into my Maid/Matron of Honor, as she already knows she dropped the ball, and can only order the dress now.
Does anyone have experience with dresses not coming in time for the wedding?
