- Wedding: August 2013
i have 3 bridesmaids and i told them they didn’t have to wear the same exact dress. they just have to be knee lenght chiffon, and they have to each pick either dark blue or purple. they don’t even have to be all the same color. i kind of like the thought of them wearing different jewel toned colors so thats why they get to choose which color they like better for themselves.
they’ve all known this since january. my Maid/Matron of Honor bought her dress last week, and another is going this weekend to order her dress since she just delivered a baby a couple of weeks ago and wanted to wait. totally fine with me. they had asked for examples of dresses i like so they had an idea and i sent them an email with examples a couple of months ago. my 3rd bridesmaid back in january said she would wait until springtime to order her dress but she still hasn’t. she hasn’t even asked anything or mentioned anything about getting it. she emails and texts me once in awhile but its about sports, work and other things. she even asks how wedding planning is going but never says anything about getting her dress.
i sent a reminder email to her about 10 days ago about the dress and resent the examples in case she needed ideas, but i haven’t heard anything back from her. we wanted to coordinate the groomesmen’s ties and handkerchiefs with each bridesmaids dress and now the groomsmen are asking and getting impatient about what they should buy. we know the colors 2 of the girls are wearing but i have no idea what color this 3rd girl will wear or if she’s even going to buy her dress! we live several states away so meeting up in person isn’t an option and i’ve tried to call her before but i just started 2 new jobs recently so i don’t have much time to chat right now.
at some point should i assume she’s not going to buy her dress and be in the wedding? if so when should i figure that?
