We asked The Official Preppy Handbook's Lisa Birnbach to field your bridal dilemmas. Listen up, ladies. Her tips will help you keep your sanity—and your friendships—in tact.
One of my bridesmaids just found out she is pregnant. She'll be seven months along at my wedding. Should I worry about finding another dress for her, or should she figure something out? —Vanessa N. of L.A., via email
If the bridesmaids' dress you selected can be adapted (a kinder word for "enlarged") for your pregnant pal, go for it. If that's too hard, how about having her wear a maternity dress in the same color, or a close approximation? If you insist on approving the dress beforehand, you can make this a fun project for the two of you. Have pillow, will shop.
