@bonsai_spork: I’m sorry this is happening to you!  I would think by 6 months out they would be on board now.  Do you have a MOH?  If so, is she participating?

Have you tried calling them instead of emailing?  Maybe if you talk to them you can find out what’s going on.

@bonsai_spork: I totally agree with @heather5743: try calling instead.. you will get a sense of tone and it will be more personal that way. My BMs have responded well to calling rather than emailing

6 months is still a long time. I mean, for the bride its not because you have so much to do. But for bridesmaids, it seems like a million years away. I would try calling them to talk instead of email.

Ditto on the calling them. Trust me, my wedding is three months away and we just got the dress thing squeared away last month. People don’t really think about how long it takes to work this stuff out. Try getting your Maid/Matron of Honor to rally the troops.

I’ve run into this, too. My wedding is 6 months away and I feel like no one’s stepping up to help or respond promptly to e-mails. I know calling is the most direct way, but e-mailing is much more convenient for me to send pictures or links.

We found the dresses for my bridesmaids the last weekend of March!  that’s 7 weeks before my wedding.. and also, they start asking you when it’s closer, do call them and chill out, everything will be ok =)

I’m glad your Maid/Matron of Honor is involved.  That’s a good sign.  Would she be willing to help you reach out to the other girls?

Of course, I think you should call them first, but then if that’s not working, maybe your Maid/Matron of Honor could start trying to get in touch with them.

I am the QUEEN of emailing, and you are right about being able to share pictures and such.  Maybe if you call them first and then you can say, “ok, I found some stuff.  I’m going to email it to you today”…or something like that.

And I know what you mean about family obligation!  I have one of those as well.

Can you call them and speak to them individually because some people are just lazy with emails
