YES tell the bride.  It might be time to start working out an emergency Plan B.  Perhaps you can work together to all search local boutiques for a sample or different dress with a matching color  .

My girls dresses were “delayed” but only by a few weeks and it was still enough time before the wedding (like by two months). 


My advice…dont tell the bride until you go into the store and raise hell. If it were me, I would go in there and get the real answer and tell them that since you ordered well in advance, you want a concrete answer. In the mean time, I would start looking for a dress that could be similar? Idk if that would work, it depends on how your dresses are..if they are exactly the same etc…my girls could get away with it as long as it was the same material bc they are all wearing different styles. Good luck, I hope this works itself out!

Holy crap! Are any other bridesmaids having this issue? I would wait on telling the bride until you have more information. Go to the store tomorrow and see if there is anything they can do to expedite the process. Are there any in-store that can be altered to fit you? Can they find the dress in another store and have it transferred to them so to speak? Speaking of alterations, you may have to take it to an outside seamstress depending on the store’s prices and timing. Hell, I’d consider taking it to someone else just to avoid giving the store more business.
