- Wedding: July 2011
So they won’t make other plans? Sorry, they know the date of your wedding; I don’t think they would be making other plans and should know to be flexible with schedules on that day. Sorry, it’s overkill to me and not necessary in my eyes.
@MuchGreater: Honestly, I LOVE your email. I am a very organized person and I like when I am apart of organized events. Your email sends the message that you are serious and that you want to get things done in a timely manner, yet you are still being nice IMO. If I were your Bridesmaid or Best Man, I would like getting something like this. I feel comfortable knowing exactly what is expected of me and where I need to be/what I need to be wearing.
And I agree, laying it all out there what time everything is and where they need to be is very important. The majority of my BMs had never been in a wedding before and didn’t underststand what a rehearsal dinner was/why they needed to be there, what time they needed to show up to get ready before the wedding, etc. I think spelling that out now is a smart idea. Are any of them staying the night in a local hotel? Or staying with you the night before the wedding? If so, you might want to put that in there too or at least the options that are available to them.
I feel this is perfect, how else are you supposed to communicate what you expect. Your wedding day is not the time to be sugar coating what you want. Of course not being nasty, but straight forward. Good job! Organization pays off.
I just wrote them an informal meeting saying, “Hey y’all! I looked at the dress in person and it didn’t come in the color I wanted. Because we need to make a decision soon, I decided on this one. It’s the perfect color and I like the style… plus it’s still the same price range, maybe less expensive even! Here are the details, and a picture, please order them by such and such date and let me know once you do. Thanks!”
