Honestly, I’m usually pretty easy going but this whole wedding thing is definately got me thinking I may have developed an anxiety disorder. Serious.
We ordered the Bridesmaid or Best Man dressed from a salon in the beginning of December. (All of my BM’s live 1.5hrs+ away & go to school, and are all involved in something demanding, so it’s hard to wrangle them up at the same times. We’re all close friends) So that was done, the salon said it would take a max 13 weeks to get the dresses in.
Well I called today (16 weeks) and she said, “Ahh, hmm, well it looks like the date they are going to ship to us is going to be around April 6…I think…” GRR! These dresses are going to be altered/shortened for all of the girls..soooo I need time for that, as well.
When did you get your dresses in? Am I worrying about nothing? I mean June 21 is a little far away, but I want to get this DONE before finals & what not.

Most places it takes maybe 2 weeks to get altered, so you have plenty of time.

@futurepilotswife_: I Feel like the wedding has upped my anxiety considerably as well, but I had a disorder to begin with. You are not alone in feeling absolutely crazy over minor things! And the alterations are a minor thing. My bridesmaids dont have their first fittings until the end of April, and my wedding is a week before yours. You have NOTHING to worry about. So take a deep breath and focus on something else. That’s all I can do when I get too stressed over one particular detail and it does help. Focus that energy elsewhere bc the dresses will be fine!

My bridesmaids’ dresses took a little over 7 months to come in. I was so upset! However, two of the girls tried them on and everything fit. If they took the measurements properly, everything should fit, and shortening the dresses should take no time at all either. 🙂
