I’m currently in the midst of a bridesmaid-related freak-out!

I have been messaging all of my bridesmaids (I have 5) this morning, to make sure that they will all be able to order their dress by the end of October. I told them in July that I wanted them to order by the middle of October, so this shouldn’t have been a surprise to any of them.

One of them said she MIGHT be able to order. (I view this as unlikely, as she still owes me money from a small loan I gave her back in June).

One of them said absolutely, she’s actually ready to place her order now.

One of them said no, and that she won’t be ready to order until early January, because she isn’t pregnant yet and doesn’t know what size she will need.

One of them said she just needs to go try them on again so she can make her final decision, but there will be no problem with ordering by the end of next month.

One hasn’t replied yet, but she works odd hours, so I think she is sleeping.

    I am getting married May 11th and today I went to look at the dresses I picked out online in person. They said I could wait till December 1 to order. The dresses are coming from After Six/Dessy. I also have a BM who wants to get pregnant so she is choosing a dress that will look okay with a bump as she grows. My dresses are long lux chiffon so its a little more forgiving. Hope it works out for you. Take a deep breath and get a glass of wine!

    SamerSue, the color I originally chose at David's Bridal was called Holly. It was a darker hunter green. They discontinued it shortly after my girls ordered dresses the first time. Which is a bummer, because it was a pretty color, but I guess not enough people liked it.
