@LadyCupcake:  You’re not asking too much, but just b/c someone is unavailable on the day you want to go doesn’t mean they don’t care, you know?  People have busy schedules.  What is her reason for not being able to go?

Are you wanting them all to wear the same dress?  This is just one day that didn’t work, it happens when you’re trying to organize an outing with a number of people.  Just try for another date until you can get something 🙂

Ohhh, I found bridesmaid dress shopping the most difficult part of wedding planning. I have 3 girls. 1 of them is my sister, who lives a 4 hour plane ride away, so she wasn’t able to join us… but she thought of it as my day, and would wear a paper bag if I asked. So, she told me to pick a dress and she’d wear it. 

The other 2… First of all, one of them is also a bride. And she would complain about her Bridesmaid or Best Man being difficult when dress shopping, so she would turn to me and say, “don’t worry, i’ll wear anything!”… except pretty much everything i picked out. I would pick out a dress and she would be the first to say, “it’s too taupe… it’s too low… its too etc”. If you’re picky, FINE! Just don’t tell me you aren’t… cause then we could’ve planned it that way, and saved us ALL headaches!!!

The third one… was hard to get 5 minutes of her time. Just like you, it took me a few weeks to plan a day that the 3 of us could go. 2 days before it, she had the nerve to email me and say, “hey, can i leave half way into the appointment? I want to go to yoga.” 

REALLY????

Of course, I told her no. That it was hard enough trying to find time for the 3 of us as it was. 

But the kicker is that I’m paying for the dresses… all I asked for was an hour or two of trying on ridiculous dresses and telling me what they want. I don’t want a shower, I don’t want a bachelorette. I hadn’t asked any of them to do anything else with me. 

Anyways. I found a dress and made a final call. 

Good luck!!! I know you need it 🙂
