I would give her a deadline to get fitted for the dress. If she doesn’t meet the deadline, then she doesn’t meet the deadline. People know they have responsibilites for agreeing to be a part of a wedding party.

@mandy86:  Is your wedding in September 2014? If so, I think you should just relax a little, you’ve got plenty of time.  It’s the holiday season, people get busy.

@mandy86:  I think it’s a perfectly normal reaction, athough it is also one that we just have to get over.

Who actually looks forward to a stranger taking your measurements and confronting you with reality?

I had a few people who were harder to get to try on/buy their dresses. I did like the pp said. I gave them a deadline that the dresses would be ordered by and if they couldn’t make it, it would be ordered without them. Mine did have to be ordered by a certain time or they wouldn’t make it in in time for the wedding.

If your wedding is in September 2014, give her some slack and a few more months.
