I am having the same problem right now girl, and don’t worry, I personally don’t think your being a bitchy bride at all. I totally understand that frustration. That is something that can’t be put off till the last minute, especailly if you have to order it. If she is your Maid/Matron of Honor, then she should be trying to help you as much as she can. That’s the point of having one right? lol If there is a Bridesmaid or Best Man who has her similar shape, or build, I would just go off of her measurements, and if it doesn’t fit, then your Maid/Matron of Honor will just have to have it altered. And she will have to pay for that herself. Either that, or just get a new Maid/Matron of Honor and just make her a Bridesmaid or Best Man. That way if she never gets it done, at least you won’t be short your Maid/Matron of Honor. I know that sounds horrible! But sometimes you have to do what’s best for you and your big day!

@Take The Reins:  I am so sorry you are going through this! Luckily I have been blessed with an amazing Maid/Matron of Honor. One bridesmaid who has a pretty good job..and I also see on FB spending a decent amount of money (even though I know we shouldn’t be looking at their finances) has made me promise after promise that she would get her dress by this date.. then another date. I finally just ended up buying the dress for her. It really sucks that you expect these girls to be there for you to a certain extent and that they just..aren’t. 🙁

It is frustrating, but it is just like dealing with children who won’t do their homework.. As long as you nag to get it done, they know they don’t have to take responsibility. They know that you won’t let them forget. Meanwhile it drives you crazy.

She won’t own the problem until you stop owning the problem. She knows that the deadline is the end of the month . Let her deal with it.
