Is that right, your wedding is jan 2016? If so, I would just order something. You might not even be able to get something at a bug chain retailer.

For my wedding, I just chose a color (two actually, and ended up having Maid/Matron of Honor in one color and the girls in the other), and let them pick their own dresses. They all picked knee length so that part was easy. And they all picked dresses that looked good on them. Vs having random dress and all the girls being matchy-matchy and looking Awkward. All my girls chose dresses at David’s bridal which made color matching easy, otherwise I also got a swatch for them if they wanted to shop elsewhere. Seriously, the all-same-dress look is annoying for bridesmaids, impractical, and doesn’t look as good in photos as you would think.

Order a dress, they all seem far to ambivilant to take action. It was traditional for the bride to pick anyway. If you want, arrange a small party out with them when they are in town for the wedding.

At this stage I say just buy their dresses for them. I reckon do a ring around so you can ask for their size to avoid any more procrastination on their part. Agree with your strategy re: paying. 

One of my two BMs is dragging her heels for our April wedding. I’m considering just buying a dress and having it posted to her to save myself the hassle of continuing to chase so I feel your pain x

Your wedding is in less than a month?  How are you not freaking out?  If two of them are your sisters, there’s no need to tiptoe around them, right?  Be real with them – say you’re not responding to me and it’s really hurting my feelings / pissing me off, whatever.  

Less than a month, this should have been figured out by now.

If your wedding really is next month, I would just order them at this point.
