July 2012 Weddings
Most of my BM are going through Davids Bridal to get their dresses. We already got the girls together and they all tried on dresses and liked them. Some of them wanted to get a swatch to see if they could find a dress to match it outside of DB which I am ok with. But most have realized finding the same Apple red is impossible so they stuck with DB. I let them chose their own dress and their own budget. Problem is one of my BM ordered her dress yesterday and the expected delivery date is JUNE 24th! 2.5 weeks before the wedding!! So i sent out a mass email letting everyone know if they plan on doing DB they better get on it because if they need alterations they are cutting it VERY short. FSIL BM # 1 never responds and doesnt keep me updated with her search. She is a big girl, so I know she is going to need alterations of some kind. I asked my other FSIL BM # 2 if she knew what FSIL BM #1 was planning on doing for a dress and she said FSIL BM # 1 is still looking! FSIL BM # 1 keeps telling me she has plenty of time not to worry that the wedding is 70+ days away and not to fret. Its hard for me not to when my BMS have their dresses and DONT need alterations. She is pretty much the only one who hasnt decided or bought a dress. I have 7 BMs.
How do I approach her without coming off as Bridezilla that she doesnt have a lot of time left to order.
