Some of my bridesmaids were bigger girls, and prefered to get measured and call the store we ordered from directly so we never needed to discuss her size, even though to me that doesn’t matter at all. Is it possible, your Bridesmaid or Best Man might be shy about weight because she thinks she is too big or too small? Just a thought.
Or is it possible she is pregnant and not sure what to do yet? Could she just be depressed and it’s become a big thing?
Otherwise, I agree with everyone else. Give her a deadline and tell her it’s ok if she is backing out but you would love it if she sould let you know either way. Yo’d love to have her but no dress in time = no bridesmaid this time around. Then maybe stress that you hope she is ok and you’d love to catch up soon.
Such an awkward position she’s putting you in. Hope it resloves for the best!

In this case, no answer IS an answer. Leave her a voicemail or email giving her a deadline and an out. Then order the rest of the dress by your deadline. If she hasn’t replied by now, don’t delay all the dress by waiting for her

Thanks for the advice ladies! I’ve been calling her everyday this week asking her to call me so we could chat. As the week has gone on, I’ve been more specific in what I’m calling about (i.e. Please get fitted for your dress!). Today I finally just left a message saying that if she’s not fitted by tomorrow that the dress won’t be in for the wedding.
I would understand if she’d say that she’s unable to attend the wedding, but not communicating with me at all has been so frustrating. I’d just like an answer one way or the other!

I was just going to suggest letting her know that if she can’t commit to getting fitted for her dress maybe she shouldn’t be in the wedding at all. I hope she responds.
On a side note, my SIL was like this. She would at least respond to my texts with she’s “busy” …the store was literally down the street from her work AND house. Not sure what her real reason was, but what I learned was…this was just the tip of the iceburg with her. She made the rest of my wedding planning such a nightmare!
