I only have a Maid/Matron of Honor (no bridesmaids). I’ve mentioned about starting to look at dresses for her and she won’t even look at any yet. Said she wants to wait a few more months to lose more weight. She is a plus size with very large chest (FFF), so I’m concerned its going to be harder to find a dress for her, let alone she said she wants one with sleeves.
I’m an over planner, everything is booked and picked out except her dress and accessories. Wedding isn’t until Nov, so I’m just letting it go for now, but…
What is the latest you would wait before worrying?
Know of any good sites for plus size for bridesmaids that have a selection that are not strapless or empire waist?

I’m having a Maid/Matron of Honor (my SIL) and no bridesmaids. My wedding is on May 3rd and she hasn’t gotten a dress yet either, but it is because she is giving birth to my nephew in less than a week. Here’s the great part about it: She doesn’t have to match anyone! She gets to pick a dress of her choice and all I gave her was a color, black. It is going to be hard for her to mess this up for ya.

If she is the only bridesmaid, she can buy a dress off the rack from any department store. No need to order a ‘bridesmaid’ dress. I would start to get on her case about a month before the wedding.
note: I’m a 36FF and I buy dresses off the rack all the time. I was a Maid/Matron of Honor In my sisters wedding (no other bridesmaids) and I bought my dress 2 weeks before the wedding with no problems.
