Do you know her measurements?  Order it yourself and then tell her how much it cost.

@peachacid:  Yup. If you don’t want to do that though, just tell her what you have here, that it takes a long time to get the dresses back and ready for wear. It’s not your responsibility at this point though.

@peachacid:  I agree.

And 3 months is still doable, but she may have to pay a rush order charge. Make sure she knows that – and that the longer she waits the more it’s going to cost.

I am a day before u and none of my bridesmaids have bought their dresses yet. Don’t sweat it until u get to one month left. Unless it takes forever to order.

I wouldn’t stress yet.  I think 3 months is still plenty of time.  My sister’s wedding was in October and we ordered dresses right around this time, and they came in with plenty of time for alterations.  Just get it ordered sooner rather than later! As long as she has her measurements anyone can order it!

Do you think maybe she doesn’t have the money for it right now? I would ask her and maybe offer to pay and have her pay you back just so you can get it ordered.

I never get these posts.  If you don’t want to order it for her, than if she doesn’t order the dress in time, she doesn’t walk – its that simple. Its not worth causing a fight or hurt feelings or stressing out. She may have financial limitations and doesn’t feel comfortable talking to you about it – money is a deeply private thing.  I’ve also dealt with Davids Bridal 3 times when I’ve been a bridesmaid myself, and i’ve never needed to order that early.

Try to take a few deep breaths and let it go?

Eeep!  If David’s Bridal is calling you then she needs to get her stuff together if she is dead set on being in the wedding.  Maybe they’re calling you because the dress you picked is a very popular style, and they know it takes x amount of time for it to come in?  I would call her, explain that DB is calling you, the dress is a popular style in high demand (because I’d imagine this is the case if they’re calling you concerned), and that you need her to order the dress to ensure she won’t be naked at the wedding, lol.  Also let her know that you understand if she is unable to order the dress (due to whatever reason she may have) and give her the option to opt out.  I like that you have already told her numerous times that it is perfectly okay and that you will still be best friends.

I had a former friend go nuts on me, and demand that I spend x amount of dollars on her wedding.  She said if I didn’t spend the money towards her wedding we weren’t friends.  Needless to say we’re not friends now.  Weddings make people go crazy and I’m glad you’re being understanding.  With kids I’m sure her financial situation changes all the time.  So A+ to you for being so considerate!  Sorry it’s all stressing you out though.
