I am having a local seamstress make all of my bridesmaids dresses. It actually is turning out cheaper than ordering from a store and is giving us a lot more latitude in design and fitting/sizing.

I’m in the same boat, I’m ordering from jasmines. As I’ve said many times before the bride buys the bm dresses in the UK, and it would cost me a fortune otherwise

A friend of mine was in a wedding when she was several sizes larger than the chosen dresses were available in.  She got a fabric sample from the store and took it to a local seamstress and had her make the same dress in her size.  She was so happy about how it fit and how she looked in it.  She even got the seamstress to make a little matching shrug so she could cover her arms because she felt self conscious about her arms in the strapless dress.

@bluebelle23:  Weight is something you can control. I wasn’t saying drop her because of her weight, I said do it because she is not doing something she said she would do. Please actually read a post before you get mad at me for what it didn’t say.

@roxirose:  If someone is that heavy, they quite obviously are not in control.

@girlymetalchick:  I would also go the Jasmines Bridal Shop route.  They are a bit more expensive than the other online Chinese companies, but the quality of the dresses are amazing.  They customise each dress – no extra charge, will ship all together.

That way you can have the same fabric and design.  They make any dress, so you are not confined to what is shown on their website.

@roxirose:  Yikes… I read the post correctly and that still would sting pretty bad.  Not only is she a failure at losing weight (I’m going out on a limb here that she’s not exactly HAPPY to be a size 34, but she may be perfectly satisifed with her weight) and then her best friend kicks her out of her wedding.  I doubt the OP actually made losing weight a condition of being in her wedding, but more a self-imposed thing of wanting to fit into a “normal” bridesmaid’s dress, and just asking her to give her time to achieve it. 

From what I see, the wedding isn’t until over a year from now.  4 sizes is probably 40-50 pounds by time time they need to order a year from now.  If she started now with a pound a week, she’d more than meet the goal.  And frankly if I had a friend like you that didn’t understand how difficult/complex my weight battle is, even at a size 14 despite any promises… I would probably decline to be a bridesmaid on my own terms.
