I love these girls, I really do – I just dont understand why they’ve waited SO LONG to get their dresses. Sorry this is a bit of a rant.
I told them MONTHS ago to get their dresses ordered so that they can get their sizes but nobody listened and ignored my reminders. I gave them more than one dress option as well!
So now, a few weeks before my wedding, I have bridesmaids who are looking for dresses, and calling me because they cant find it in their sizes. The preferred dress is out of stock, so they now have to go with the 2nd option, IF they can find it in their size.
Sorry but I already gave them two different dress options and months to get their dresses, im not sure what they were waiting for, or why they decided to wait so long but now they’re just going to have to make due with what they can find.
One girl had the nerve to ask me “isnt there anything ELSE that you like??” As if I would consider choosing yet another dress option now just because they’re having trouble finding it. So I can have 4 different dresses in my pictures? No thanks. Its mostly principle – why not respect me enough to LISTEN to what I said to begin with??
Only ONE girl took my advice and warning and ordered hers last month. So the other 3 are getting themselves stressed out looking for the dress. It sucks, but thats what happens when you wait till last minute!

Do you think it was a money issue? That tends to be a big factor in situations like this. Sometimes it’s just procrastination though. You may need a back up if they can’t find the dress though. Good luck!

Im not sure if it was a money issue, or not, Davids Bridal has layaway… I wished if they were really struggling for money, they would tell me, I would have helped them out with that if I knew!
Im seriously considering looking for a backup now. So one girl will have dress #1, one girl bought dress #2, and the other 2 will be in a completely different dress if they cant find one…great…
I wish this wasnt the only trouble I’ve had with trying to get my wedding off the ground, its been one thing after another. Im picking up my dress today, hopefully im not in for any more surprises! lol

I totally understand. Most of my bridesmaids waited til the last minute, some for financial reasons, one had a baby and one doesn’t even try to hide her disinterest in my wedding except for when she asked to bring a date!
I say don’t go out of your way unless you know that there was a legitimate reason. You have enough to stress about.

I am experiencing something very similar. I think I am ready to cut them out of the wedding! They had since january. They waited so long the dresses were discountinued AFTER some already purchased their dress! We had to start all over and now these slacking BM’s have waited so long again…the dresses may not be in in time! Money issue or not. If you can’t afford the dress speak up so we can come up with a plan. I can’t fix what I don’t know about!

What a pain! Don’t bridesmaids know how easy they have it- all they have to do is get the dress and show up!
