So being the bride am I the one who is suppose to set up and take my bridesmaid to look at bridesmaid dress? Or should the Maid/Matron of Honor do that?
What would? Or did? You do when one or a couple bridesmaids couldn’t seem to fit going to even see the dress in their busy schedule? Did you take them back to see it? Or just make them order the same thing the other bridesmaids did.
Me and my girls are suppose to go look at the twobrids bridesmaid dress at Bella bridesmaids in Los Angeles. But they can’t seem to fit it in. Being that my wedding is 04/24 we really don’t have too much time, but if you’ve heard or seen these dresses they don’t need to altered. So its okay if we get them in April but we’d have to order them no later than the 01/08/2009 to get them at the beginning of April. I had asked my Maid/Matron of Honor ( who is my sister and this dress was her idea) months ago to make an appointment so we can go see them and she didn’t.

I don’t know if there is a hard & fast rule about who makes the arrangements for looking at bridesmaid’s dresses. But, if you asked your sister to make an appointment, and she didn’t, that kind of sucks.
As for all of the Bridesmaids being there…well it would be nice if they could all see the dress and give it their blessing, but sometimes life makes that difficult. I had two of my three with me when we went shopping. The third just said I will wear whatever you buy. She knew what styles I was looking at anyways, so she was happy.

So you’ve already picked a dress? Have any of your bridesmaids tried it on? I know you like it, but have you seen it on anyone? Do your bridesmaids know what it looks like? What color it will be? I don’t think all of your bridesmaids need to try it on, but you should probably have at least one of them try it on. Once your decision is set, get your bridesmaids to call the store to give them their measurements so the dresses can be ordered. Make sure they know when they need to have their orders in by.

since you want to be there to see your bridesmaids in the dresses and help decide which one/ones they’ll wear, i would definitely take them to look at dresses yourself. i think it would also be nice if you just went ahead and set up the apt, unless your moh offers to do it for you. i was in a wedding recently where some of the bridesmaids were either unable to come with us when picking out the dress or lived out of town. they just missed out on the fun and called in with their measurements after we all picked the dress. it worked out fine to go without them.

@ Mandalynn17: Well the dresses are one size fits all and here check them out so you can get a better idea of what this dress is about. http://www.twobirdsbridesmaid.com/main.html. These dresses don’t need to be altered. My bridemaids all know about the dress. I’ve given them the link to look at everything themselves. Everyone loves the dress.

I think you should set up the appointment, since you have the relationship with all the girls.
It sounds like you already have the dress picked out – is that the case? If so, there’s no need to have the girls order them at the same time. Just give them the info, and the deadline (or up it a bit, if you have BM’s that procrastinate) and then follow-up with the store to make sure all the orders are in.
However, if you have not decided on the dress and just want their opinions, I’d try to make a date that works for everyone – but, if some can’t make it, just go with the ones that can and base your decision on the input from the girls present.
I’ve been in a lot of weddings and never expect to be the one picking the dress – FYI
