um, what did the shop suggest? Will they let you return all of the dresses? If you can return them, you can start looking for an off the rack (or internet) dress that will match your plan and fit everyone with minimal to no alterations. I would not be happy to have one Maid/Matron of Honor in black since it is not part of your color scheme. I would also not be happy that I had to call the shop to find out this news and would really lean on them to make this right and take the stress away from you. Can they call around to other shops to see if some one stocks the dress in the right size and you could buy the sample? Can you find the green dress online and get hte shop to buy it for you or reimburse the cost of the first dress if it was more expensive? Good luck!

Hopefully they can overnight it. Did you ask the shop what they will do for you if they can’t get them in time?

If not, half black half green isn’t bad. Do black dresses with green sashes and green dresses with black sashes. Well, kinda half black/green. If you can get both MOH’s in black I think you’re safe. Even pregnant, a sash isn’t a bad way to go. My Future Sister-In-Law is in a black dress (standing on my FI’s side) and my mom made her a champagne sash–the same one my bridesmaids have. We joke that it’s like her baby’s a gift now. 

Maybe they can order it in from a different shop or whatnot, too. I’d be calling them everyday for a status check if i were you!
