If she is going to David’s she doesn;t need an appointment she can just walk in the door. They will see anyone and they have several sizes in each style to try on so she knows what to get.

Do you think she isn’t interested and doesn’t want to tell you this, so the dress not being there in time will be the excuse?

The minimum a bm should do is get the dress. If she doesn’t, you aren’t at fault. If it were me,mid be like “oh well, I reminded you lots of times!” and be short a bridesmaid. Has your Fiance made an effort to talk to them? I’d have him call and put his foot down. It’s your wedding and if she doesn’t want to be a part of it by not doing her only task, then she should be adult enough to say something.

No apt. Needed as they won’t turn business away also make sure you voice to them that if no dress then no bridesmaid. That way it’s out there.

@Absolute:  i didn’t have a bm but my hubby had his sister stand up with him so she wore a bm dress.  we were out of the country so she could pick whatever she wanted in black.  pretty easy, huh.  well, i think she finally went to david’s and ordered it a month before and got it 2 weeks prior to the wedding.  talk about cutting it close.  i kept asking for a pic of her in it but never got one.  mil sent me a pic of the model wearing it in another colour.  i got to see it on the wedding day.

Personally I would set a timeline.  Give her X amount of time, if she doesn’t have the dress by then you will take that as her declining to be a part of the bridal party

@Absolute:  oh man I have this issue as well~ but its a little different cuz my FI’s sister lives in London and I simply asked her to throw a measuring tape around herself to get a rough idea of the DB size I will get her and instead of doing that SHE SUGGESTED SHE SHOULDN”T BE A Bridesmaid or Best Man CUZ SHE DOESN’T KNOW IF SHE’S EVEN GOING TO COME?!

I was like are you FREAKING serious?

You’re my FI’s SISTER and His parents and best friends are all coming from UK and YOU AREN’T?! WTF?!

Yeeeeah, anyway, the point is, maybe she feels so disconnected to the bridal party that she doesn’t actually want to be in it and up there standing with y’all…

I would ask if she wants to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man or Jr Maid/Matron of Honor or whatever. It seems like she doesn’t and might prefer to wear her own dress and just sit (maybe she doesn’t like the spotlight?)

Call her & have some “real talk” cuz asking us really isn’t getting down to the root of the issue… we can all guess about her motives but she’s the one who knows how she feels and you are the one who has to deal with it in the end. lol

Some people just don’t have their priorities straight!

If Davids says the dress won’t be in on time, try calling different David’s stores to see if they have the right dress in stock. You or she can go pick it up, or try to order online. I heard online ordering is quicker.
