  • Wedding: July 2010

Honestly, I would take a step back and just focus on being friends with her for a while.  Trying to conceive is a huge life event, just like getting married is.  As far as the dresses, I personally wouldn’t buy anything if you have more than a year to your wedding.  It’s a real possibility that you will change your mind on what you want between now and then (i.e. find something even more perfect!). 

As far as “you have your own plan for 2011…”  of course she does!  Would you really want a friend who sat on their butt all day every day and had no goals in life!?!  Your wedding is one day (no more, no less).  Just try to keep that in perspective and it will make your decisions easier.

  • Wedding: October 2011

My wedding is in October 2011, and I have been trying to find fall color dresses off the rack and on sale NOW. But, all my girls have asked me to wait until closer to the time, because they are all worried about their weight fluctuating (and none are TTC). I think sometimes us brides try to do the right thing by finding a great dress for less, but sometimes it’s easier just to wait. Might be what you have to do in your case. Or, have the other girls order theirs now, and have her order hers later, or wear something different if that’s not an option. it’s a pain I know. I just want to take care of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and have it all done.

Very good! I think that’s the right attitude, it’ll cause a lot less stress for you and your matron of honour! And it sounds very sensible too Smile
