You are being to accomodating. I would call and give them a couple dates to choose from while on the phone. I think you’re being to indirect.

I agree. My first impression of your messages  was that they are so long and offering so many options that I probably would just give up understanding what you are trying to say.

Keep your message concise-offer only a couple of choices of dates-whoever can make it gets to help choose.

ps  I wouldn’t encourage them to wait for a sale as the dress they want may not be available. Just make a choice and get on with it.

I feel your pain, my bridesmaids have been more stress than anything! I told them to order their dresses by tomorrow and out of the 5, I only have one more to go. I think you just need to tell them what to do and when to do it. I think we have similar personalities and at first I was trying to make everyone happy and it only backfired for me! Just pick a date about a month or so out and tell them who ever comes has an opinion…thats what I did and they ALL were there! 🙂


Good Luck!
