Is there something holding her back?  Possibly, she can’t afford it and doesn’t want to tell you?

I’d probably be pretty blunt with her and tell her that if she doesn’t order this weekend, she’s running the risk of the dress either not being in, or having to pay a rush fee.  Hopefully, that will snap her into gear!

if she doesn’t order it, in my opinion that is her way of saying she is taking herself out of the wedding. It’s really not the end of the world. Is it a financial issue? maybe you could offer to pay for it and go with her to order it to see if that helps?

@TorontoBride2be:  we are date twins and I have TWO bridesmaids who havent gotten their dress yet.  I gave them similar guidelines, I pick the color, they can get whatever style they want.  I am going the the philosophy that if they don’t get their dress, they probably didn’t want to be in the wedding party in the first place.

I think you did the right thing by telling her she had to get the dress by May 1st.  I think you should talk to her privately and just ask if she’s having financial trouble.  Are you in a position to cover the cost of the dress if she really can’t afford it?

@TorontoBride2be:  I have a bridesmaid doing the same thing, only my wedding is in less than 2 months. She still hasn’t ordered the dress and now is quibbling over colors. I’m about to lose my damn mind.
