Yay for being 4 months out exactly!  I’m 3 months and 17 days out according to one of my countdowns!  =)  And welcome to this section of weddingbee — it’s great to talk to fellow October 2012 brides and get feedback!

Now onto your vent —  I’m really sorry your Maid/Matron of Honor is acting like this.  I’m sorry you had to go ahead and order the dress for her and there’s a chance it may not come in on time.  Frown  Have you tried to talk to her about how you’re feeling?  

My Maid/Matron of Honor is out of state but she’s been pretty great.  She and I facebook message back and forth.  She just got engaged and is planning to buy a house soon, so she’s been kind of busy, but it’s all totally understandable.  She’s been a great help to me!  She came to visit in April and we figured out dresses/DIYed flower girl baskets/and relaxed.

Better to vent here than to take it out on your Fiance…I am too sorry about your stress over the dresses and bridesmaids…I think that one of the best decisions I made was to just have no wedding party. I could not imagine having to worry about if everyone has their gear for My big day…I am still having a heck of a time finding shoes for my flintstone feet!!!


So rant away my dear…but remember most people have no idea that they are hurting us unless we tell them..and all we can do is speak our truth…what they do with it is on them…


Everything will work out exactly the way it should be…remember that *HUGS*


So that means i have 3 months and holy cow 23 days haha 


postive thoughts your way sista

Date triplets πŸ™‚ 

Sorry you’re going through that too.  It definitely helps to be honest and upfront.  I already had a bridesmaid flake on a brunch we had to meet the other bridesmaids. She is not the most dependable girl, but I love her dearly.  I had to tell her that I was disappointed and that I need to be able to count on her through this stressful time.  Good luck and hope it gets better!! πŸ™‚

This is one of the reasons why I am not having a wedding party.  If my brother comes to the wedding, he will stand up for me. Otherwise I am not having anyone.

My wedding is 15 days before yours and my Maid/Matron of Honor sister still hasnt gotten her dress and the Best Man, FI’s brother is the only one who hasnt gotten fitted for his tux.  The two most important people in the bridal party aside from the bride and groom are the only ones who have been the least cooperative.  I cant financially afford to buy my sisters dress, and the fact that she is constantly buying new shoes, getting mani’s and pedi’s and at the bar every weekend tells me she has the money to get it.  Plus she has known about it since JANUARY!  Makes me soooo irritated!!
