You have all been so helpful with my other posts, I felt the need to get some more input.
Here's the scoop: my wedding is in exactly 11 days. (YAY!) However, I am concerned one of my bridesmaids (also my cousin) won't be able to fit in her dress. The dresses were ordered Mid-February, maybe even early March and they came in sometime in April. When she tried and ordered the dress, it fit her just right. However, my concern is that it will no longer fit. She has put on weight, I haven't said anything to her, because weight has always been an obstacle for her and I didn't want to make her feel bad. Her dress was at my mom's house (her aunts) until early May, and during that time, I constantly texted, called, Facebook'd her reminding her to pick up her dress, she needs to try it on, etc. Well I ended up having her mom take it hom at my bridal shower, and she has yet to try it on.
My biggest concern is that the dress won't fit her anymore and there won't be time for her to get it altered. If it doesn't fit what should I do? We are the same age, we graduated high school together and have been best friends for our entire lives, I would feel awful if her dress didn't fit and there was no time to correct this issue and maybe have to tell her she can't be in the wedding...I just don't know what to do in this situation. I really don't want to be the bride that says "Oh well since your dress doesn't fit you're not in the wedding" but I'm not sure what else to do.
Thanks for any and all advice/feedback.
And I hope I am not coming off wrong, that is not my intention. Trust me, I want her in the wedding!
