um you need to tell them to order their dresses or they are not going to come in in time! where did you get dresses from? if it’s some place like J Crew then that’s one thing but some place like Bari Jay etc. they can take months.

The deadline is past.  Send a friendly email to them and say, “Hey!  I know I’m being a bit of a pest, but we’re planning in such a short amount of time, I can’t help it!  The deadline to order dresses was yesterday and I noticed that you guys haven’t had a chance to order them yet.  Would you mind ordering them today?  I’m concerned that if we don’t get them ordered ASAP, they won’t come in on time and you won’t have time to get them altered to fit you perfectly!  If there’s a problem, please, PLEASE let me know and I’ll do whatever I can to help!”

They agreed to be in the wedding, so now they need to follow through and do their job.  Good luck!

I hate to say it, but I’d say let them know again. They’ll have to pay more to rush the order if they wait. Perhaps you could even send an email/call saying that you need their CC info so that you can purchase the dress. 

Does David’s have a pay 1/2 now, 1/2 when you pick it up plan? Pricilla’s does; that is where I ordered dresses for my wedding. 

I was just asked to be in a wedding and had 1 week to buy the dress, for a wedding in June. As a Bridesmaid or Best Man sometimes you just have to do what you have to do 🙂 Your wedding is coming up and they should know that they have to wear the dress.

You can tell them again.  I think sometimes people don’t think bridesmaids dresses REALLY take that long to come in, but they do.  they don’t want to get stuck paying rush fees or ending up with no dress at all.
