Im not sure what to do here.... (gonna rant a little, but also need a little help)
I have a bridesmaid who is been asking A LOT of why this time, why do you have to do it like that...etc. She has never been in a wedding, neither have I but I have some knowledge as what to do ( I have been married before, and have helped friends.) My biggest WHY from her is WHY do I have to pick my dress in April (wedding date Oct 31st). I have the my girls picking there dresses from ones that I have picked from they are not all the same which I am MORE then ok with. I had been talking with her about just having an idea as to what she would like to wear NOT pick it and purchase it in April but at least have an idea of at least 2/3 dress from the list. I had said that June/July would be when they would purchase and I got yet ANOTHER WHY. I had told her like 4-5 months before the wedding to have your dress purchased I had told her the checklist suggested April to purchase there attire, I know thats to soon myself. Im not sure if she thinks she will have the $ for the dress in April which is why I told her she has until June/July to get the dress. Not sure why she keeps with the WHY but it is starting to stress me out. I dont want to be THAT bride and be demanding but I want her to understand that Im only trying to make things as easy as I can, her daughter and her fiance are also standing up in the wedding (her fiance just happens to be my FH's best man). My matron of honor and the other bridesmaids all have agreed to narrowing there choices down in April, and purchasing June/July. I also told them I am NOT opposed to them getting there dresses sooner if they wanted to Im not forcing them, but def by June/July they have to have there dresses. I have tried to be as nice as I can to this bridesmaid without getting mad. I have told her that the other small reason is that sometimes dress have to be ordered cause they dont have the size, or color in store and would have to come from maybe another store from another state. How can I try to explain this better to someone who doesnt know what type of timeline there is for a wedding.
