If it is any encouragment for you, my sister ordered her dress 3 weeks ago and it arrived last week, so sometimes it doesn’t take as long.

Since she’s planning her own wedding, she should understand the importance of ordering the dress so that it arrives in time.  IMO, she’s just being selfish.  Talk to her tonight and tell her that the store informed you that it needs to be ordered NOW so it will arrive on time.  Put the blame on the store to be the bad guy.

You aren’t being a bridezilla!  She needs to suck it up and do what you asked!  She would ask the same thing of her bridesmaids.  You gave plenty of notice.  David’s called me and told me that if my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t order her dress by the end of May, it might not be finished with alterations and everything before the wedding.  Ask David’s if they’ll call her with a friendly reminder…lol

@shimmerofheaven: I know it can be stressful, but if it makes you feel better my sister and best friend ordered their Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from David’s Bridal on May 30th, and they were literally in the store on June 4th. They came in super quick. The same with the alterations, we’re picking up the finished dresses (and my wedding dress) on Wednesday. Maybe you can make a date to go with her? If you guys set a date to go maybe she’ll be less likely to break it and more likely to get it done?

I’m sorry you’re going through this. All these stupid little things sometimes add up to create big time stress! I think you definitely need to have a better chat with her. Have you tried maybe talking to her from the perspective of being a fellow bride? That might hit home a little better with her. Hopefully she gets on board ASAP. If she doesn’t you’re going to have to talk to her about more than the dress unfortunately…

Maybe let her know she needs it within the next four weeks, because if she doesn’t get it, she won’t be able to be in the wedding, though that’s not what you want… or something like that…  

Honestly, I have seen on a lot of posts that DB is faster than the deadlines when it comes to bridesmaid dresses, and I mean, if she can’t get it altered, its her problem if it looks bad.  And worst case scenario, it sounds like shes really not being great with the wedding anyways… if she doesn’t get her dress and can’t be in the wedding, it probably won’t be the end of the world.

First of all…woah! Your best friend is going to be your sister-in-law, crazy! Isn’t it weird though (and a bit annoying?) that she was supposed to get married after you and now she’s getting married before you?

Back to the issue at hand though: the dress will probably not take very long to get in. However, after getting married she’ll have excuses about having to unwrap the wedding gifts, having to send out thank you cards, having to organize the house, etc. So make sure she gets fitted NOW before her wedding. It really isn’t that big a deal, she should not be making this so difficult for you given how much notice you gave her.
