Yikes, the drama! Could you just sit them down and explain explain to them how this is putting a damper on your planning experience? It’d probably be awkward, but it might help.

@ChocolateLime:  Wow. I’m so sorry to learn they’re behaving so poorly. Put a stop to it immediately before any more time transpires and before you’re too close to the wedding date to make changes and handle it amongst all the other pieces coming together. Sit them both down and politely but firmly ask them to stop trying to out-do each other, putting you in the middle and themselves first, and stressing you out over their own insecurities. Don’t get into details, don’t get into a debate, just request that they stop and consider your needs for peace among them and toward you as the bride. If they cannot get their acts together and behave, they’re no longer needed in the bridal party. Theirs is a position of honor to make YOU feel comfortable and supported now and on your special day. If they can do, great! If they can’t manage themselves and be considerate of your best interests, they’ve no business being in the bridal party.

I’m confused. Why are you having your dress fitting 11 months before your wedding? I understand your pregnant, but I only started my dress fittings 6-8 weeks before my wedding.

As for your bridesmaids talk to them about how everything is making you feel.

It’s very rare that your “post-baby” body is remotely similar to your “pre-baby” body; my weight was within ten pounds, but things had definitely shifted.  Could you look for styles you like now, and consider not doing your fittings until after you’ve delivered and had a chance to lose a bit of the baby bulge?  Of course, I gained 65 pounds having a 6 pound baby, so I might be the exception on this one!
