I think you should be straightforward with her. I would definitely call her and ask her what is going on. If she doesn’t answer and does not call you back, tell her you have not other choice but for her to not be in the wedding. It’s not worth it for you to stress over her this entire time – it’s supposed to be fun, and it’s not when you can’t count on people. Can you ask her sister what is going on, or her Mom – is her Mom your aunt?

You should call…you don’t actually have confirmation that she’s gotten the info about needing to order by next week.  And it’s not too pushy to get on someone’s case about these types of things.  I think it’s pretty common, actually, for brides to need to hound BM’s sometimes.  (I’ll admit to being guilty of being a late, though not this late, ordering Bridesmaid or Best Man.) 

Don’t make the conversation about anything other than ordering the dress though, you’ve already asked her to be in the wedding so don’t change your mind unless she’s the one who backs out.  I agree that would be pretty rude, but since you know there’s a chance you might also consider contingency options if she does.  I mean, all it would really change is the processional after the ceremony, right?

I don’t think it’s being pushy at all.  If she wants to be in your wedding she needs to talk with you about ordering the dress.  My wedding isn’t till June and I’m a little aggravated mine haven’t ordered them yet either.  I’m about to e-mail them today to remind them.  If they need to be taken in that could take another week or so.  I would try to get ahold of her!

I think you should just let it go.  Except for ones that didn’t come in small enough sizes, every Bridesmaid or Best Man dress I’ve had didn’t *need* alterations…it just looked way better with them.  Don’t stress about it, it’s not your job tomake sure she looks perfect.

Don’t let yourself stress over this.  She has the dress ordered and if she ends up not having it properly altered in time, that falls on her.  She’s the one who will look a little funny on the wedding day.  You offered your help to her and that’s all you can do.  Just focus your energy on other parts your wedding that you do have control over.  I’m sure with this Bridesmaid or Best Man things will work themselves out.
