I only have 1 BM, so I already know I have it easier than most. My BM is in an extremely tight budget and it will require us to get creative and hopfully find an amazing deal. I told her that as long as the color was either silver or charcoal (and even that I am flexible about), I was open to whatever type of dress she wanted to wear and she's thinking cocktail dress. No problem.
However, she is thinking we have all the time in the world to find this dress. I told her that the holidays (before or shortly thereafter) would probably be our best chance to find a good deal and have more options. She's been procrastinating setting a time with me to go shopping and I don't want to pressure her at all. And if it came to it, I don't have a problem contributing to the dress too if that is what is bothering her. I know she is in a tight spot.
I just wish we could get this done so I can have this check done. It's one of the (few) checks that require me to rely on someone else and its secretly driving me crazy. I'm having the same problem with my mom but we've at least already been shopping once. Mom has a bit of an awkward shape so it's going to take us longer to find something for her. She at least knows this and has already started shopping with me.
Edit: I forgot to mention that my biggest concern is that after the holidays spring (light) colors will be coming out and I am afraid we will have minimal options if we wait too long.
Am I over thinking this?
