Ask her if you can help, maybe send her some ideas or go shopping together. If she declines, you’ll probably have to leave it up to her and hope for the best.

She still has plenty of time.  My mom didn’t get her dress for my brother’s wedding until 4 weeks before, and she looked amazing.  I wouldn’t start to panic until you’re closer to the date (i.e. when there’s not enough time for a dress to special order a particular size or style).

I am 25 days out and my MOH hasn’t yet gotten her dress, although she plans on buying something off the rack. I know how you feel. I have decided that I am not stressing out over it and if she can’t find something that fits well then she is going to look like the ass not me. Not much more I can do about it.

I think she has plenty of time. Her alterations should take one day or she can shop in the petite department.

@Bondytobe:  It’s hard, I understand but your MIL is only going to be in a handful of pictures out of your wedding. Remember that the rest of them will be fabulous and she may find something that she looks fabulous in.

My MOH is a person that is very much a last minute girl kind of woman. I am a planner by nature. I was incrediably upset that she didn’t have a dress about a month ago. (I took it as she didn’t see my wedding as important.) I realize that in any other situation she is last minute. That is who she is so I let it go and trusted that she will take care of it. If she moans about how she looks I will give her I told you so look and smile.
