ok so my girls all know they will be paying for the dress. we are close to making the final decision, but what happens at the time we order? do we put a deposit down? should i take care of the deposit? should they each take care of their own deposit? not sure how to handle what i feel is an awkward situation at the time of ordering. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

If they are already aware that they are to purchase their own dress, then they will probably be okay with fronting their own deposits that day. When my girls and I went shopping they did their 50% deposits, we didn’t really talk about it, it was sort of an unspoken given. Afterward I took them out to lunch

when i was a bm, we each took care of putting down our own deposit on our own time. the bride just sent out reminders letting us know by what date we needed to order, and that was all it took for us to get things accomplished. and don’t worry too much about awkwardness – i think that when people agree to be a bridesmaid they know that paying for the dress is usually part of the deal. : )
