My wedding is in November. My girls just gave me a fabulous shower and I know they spent a lot of time and money to do that. A couple of weeks ago, I sent an email (the first) to my girls asking them to have their dress selection and purchased by the end of June. I know finances are tight and I didnt want to rush them. Also, the girls get to pick their dress as long as it is the same legnth, fabric and color. They are all going to David’s bridal so there are a ton of styles to chose from.
Would it be rude if I sent a reminder email in about 2 weeks (beg of june) about their dresses? I was going to simply remind them to have their choice made and if they had any comments, questions or concerns that I would be all ears.
I dont want to upset my girls, but I dont want them to wait until the last minute to find a dress. I want them comfortable in their dress and feel if it was a last minute dress than they may not be as comfortable.

I would send them a reminder – I’ve been a bridesmaid before and the bride sent us reminders and I didnt think it was rude. I myself as a bride have sent some of my bridesmaids a few reminders about certain things!

I don’t think it’s rude for the bride to remind bridesmaids to get the dress by a certain date. It’s your wedding and obviously you want to make sure they won’t be naked. =P I don’t think they’d see it as being rude =) I personally wouldn’t.

I’d send a reminder that is also an inquiry about how it’s going, any problems, etc., so it doesn’t seem like you’re hounding. I wouldn’t mind check-up e-mails as a Bridesmaid or Best Man.

if you think that finances will be too tight- you can probably push back the deadline. all 4 of my girls have ordred their dresses from DB and they came in within a month. One bridesmaid ordered hers online and it was delivered to her house in 4 days! << i’m thinking thats out of the ordinary tho, so dont tell your girls! 🙂
