Making something is faster, easier, and with better results than just buying something?

uh. Someone wouldn’t be a Bridesmaid or Best Man. If your mother is so worried about it, your mother can do the work. That’s the last thing you need to be worried about. When your Bridesmaid or Best Man accepted the position she kind of accepted the terms that came along with it. One of those terms is being responsible for getting a dress…in a timely manner. 

I’d be pissed. Have you talked to her about it?

ummm not crazy at all – and youre MAKING it?!  totally not crazy at all – how did she only figure out 2 weeks ago that she couldnt afford the dress?  a heads up about 2 months ago would have been okay, less than 2 weeks is insanity!

Why dont you you just buy a dress instead of making one? You can visit department stores and they should have somthing that will coordinate with your colors. What color and style of dress did you have in mind?

What’s your budget? I ordered dresses from Nordstrom.com and had them delivered within a couple of days.

What? I’d be down a bridesmaid at this point. If you can’t tell me something this important until a week before my wedding then I can’t help you. I can’t believe the Bridesmaid or Best Man didn’t say anything, what exactly was her gameplan?

I don’t understand why your Bridesmaid or Best Man and mother were keeping this from you.  What did they think would happen – that a dress would magically appear the morning of your wedding?  That’s just nuts that they kept you in the dark.  Good luck with it.

this whole thing is bit bizarre… have you tried a costume store or fancy dress place? They usualy have plent of medieval looking dresses.  I would personally cut her out because it doesnt makes sense why your mom and Bridesmaid or Best Man would keep this from you.

@cyneswith: As a historical reenactment geek, I totally get the “Look, I can make this in a day but GRRR” feelings and yes, your Bridesmaid or Best Man or mom or a little bird should have told you as soon as they knew about the situation. 

Sending you virtual good sewing vibes – may your bobbin thread not run out at a critical point, your needles remain strong and sharp and your scissors not vanish right when you need them.

If it were me, she would probably not be a bridesmaid!
