My wedding is in a week in a half and my SIL still doesn’t have her bridesmaid dress. I gave my bridesmaid 3 colors and then they were able to pick their own dresses ( with a couple restrictions). All my girls found dresses within a week except SIL. I gave her until last week to find something or I would have to pick something for her. I sent her two dresses and she said “no offense those are ugly,” and said she won’t wear them and that she would keep looking for a dress. I’m so stressed about her not having a dress and with less than 2 weeks to go I have so much other stuff I need to worrying about. What do i do?

She sounds like a peach. Honestly, you should just let it go. If she finds a dress and shows up on the day in the dress, she’s a bridesmaid. If she doesn’t, she’s not. End of story.

Sfcali: If she finds a dress, she is in the wedding party. If she doesn’t, she isn’t.
Spend your time and energy on things you actually can control.

Curious – is it a matter of her not finding something she likes or just not even bothering to look? Are the colors (and “restrictions”) making things difficult? Or is she just being lazy? Either way, I agree with PP, if she gets one great. If not, she’s a guest.

Sfcali: Don’t stress about it!!!! She won’t show up naked, so she will have some sort of dress on. As long as your restrictions aren’t crazy or insanely hard, she will be able to find something. If she doesn’t come with a dress in those 3 colors under those restrictions, oh well, she’s not a Bridesmaid or Best Man. That was her decision. At least she said she’s looking.
