I’m getting married on Saturday. I started planning my wedding about a year and a half ago and gave my bridesmaids directions to buy floorlength wine red dresses. All of my bridesmaids have their dresses except for one who has not purchased one. She now does not have time to order one online. I am actually starting to panic given that she needs to have this dress purchased and fitted by saturday. Am I being unreasonable?

    It’s the holiday season. So I’m sure she can find a floor-length dress in a department store or other store (probably even on Amazon). I wouldn’t bother having it fitted though.

    Sounds like being a bridesmaid isn't a priority to her. She can be a guest instead and wear whatever she wants.

    Yikes! First of all, how has it taken her a year and a half to get the dress? Was she in financial trouble, or was she just a slacker? I certainly hope she's found something by now. David's Bridal has a nice collection of bridesmaid dresses on sale right now, many of which are both long AND wine-colored. If I'm reading the timestamp correctly, she's now looking at two days. Frankly, that was very irresponsible of her to not shop for a dress and not to talk to you sooner about it. I'm hoping maybe she could at least get something half-decent off the rack. If there's a DB nearby, I'd send her there first. JCPenney often has nice dresses this time of year, especially in darker colors that are made for formal holiday parties. I'm sure they could also serve as last-minute bridesmaid dresses. Good luck to both of you!

    Hopefully she was able to find a dress by now? Did everything end up working out?

    Ultimately, the bridesmaid bought a dress which I personally hated and also didn’t fit her well but I let it slide. Fingers crossed the pictures turn out ok.
