Am I the only person that feels they have to hunt their bridal party down to buy their bridesmaids dresses? I feel like I’m starting to have to harrass them to buy their dresses. I’m so over it. I have a million other things I have to handle that is one that I didnt think would take up most of my time. Are you girls having the same issues?

I’m sorry to hear that! I didn’t have that issue only because we found the perfect bridemaid dress once when I was out with the girls so we went ahead and ordered it while I was there. But I know that’s a rare, and lucky, circumstance!
Do you have one ultra-responsible Bridesmaid or Best Man who could take on the task of making sure the orders get completed?

I have a while before I am at the crunch line but mines are being pretty prompted about ordering dresses.

I thought I was going to have this issue but i just gave them a deadline… I said PLEASE, everyone has to get fitted and pay the downpayment by _________. If not, the dresses might not come in on time!!
This seemed to work. one of them did it that last day!! lol

I had to hunt three out of seven BMs. Two ended up being for a reason which I won’t go into (except it all worked out). One is just irresponsible. Ugh. The others were fine I guess, but one of them even got on my nerves because she waited until the very last day to buy it and never told me she was waiting that long. I can’t really complain about that one though, since she did do it in time!

i gave mine a deadline to go try on dresses, get measured, and pick out their style from the designer’s collection. i asked them all to have everything to me about 5 months before the wedding and i will order the dresses.

My Maid/Matron of Honor bought hers almost immediately. She’s a star.
My sister and SIL waited forever and both had problems getting their dresses in in time. But they were all dressed on the day of the wedding and I didn’t bother them much about it.
