Yeah, that doesn’t sound right.  You don’t really need to be there (unless you’re requesting something strange), and no one knows her schedule and availability better than her.  I don’t plan to go.

@peachbaby4008:  They should make their own appointments. Only they know when they would be available and where they want to go have their dresses altered.

@peachbaby4008:  No joke I just sent an email 2 minutes ago to my BMs to make sure to schdule their own alterations before the end of this month.  I say no you dont have to make their appts for them, the way I see it I dont know everything going on in their lives so they can setup the appt as it fits into their schdule. 


I have never really heard of the bride making the alteration appts for the BMs, I guess it would be up to you what you would like to do.

BMs should handle their own alterations.

Wuuuut? Grown women can’t make their own alterations appointments to fit their individual schedules?

Haha, this made me laugh.  They should be making their own appointments.

What??  That’s super weird to me.  I’ve never heard of that.  You can let them make their own appointments.

What? She’s being a little too much. I didn’t even go with my girls to their fittings, not because I didn’t want to, but because they never asked.

@peachbaby4008:  I don’t think you need to make those appointments. When I was a bridesmaid I made my own.

@peachbaby4008:  tell her she is on her own for alterations.

my girls are going to their own seamstresses for alterations, not the place where we bought the dresses.

I left my birdesmaids to sort their own alterations so they could pick someone near their homes, they just let me know the cost and I paid them back
