Make Up Your Mind!!!

They tell us at that point that they aren't sure if the kids will do it. We asked them to think about it for a week or two and let us know.
We heard from them TODAY. Two months later. They've decided to do it. This is after trying to get in touch with them, not hearing, and then deciding ourselves that it wasn't worth the trouble if they weren't going to respond. Oh, and they still didn't give me the sizes.
I'm so tempted to just email them back and tell them thanks for considering but since we couldn't get in touch with them, we are considering other options. I know FI's mother would kill me if I did it, but I can't have them going back and forth and not calling me back for two months. Would that be too bitchy of me?

Unfortuantely, sometimes people don't understand the pressure of organizing a destination wedding, and making sure everything is ready to go.
I would confirm they have booked before I do anything though.

Listen... I guess it all depends on what look you are going for, but what the kids are wearing should not matter that much. I dunno... for me, it was just really important to have my two nephews be joint ring bearers. They are 5 and 9. I never even asked them until a few days before... because I didn't want them to get all nervous and I wanted them to be comfortable doing it. It turns out my sister-in-law had chosen the most perfect outfits for them!

I would definitely call them and let them know you are considering other options. You don't have to be rude about it but just be honest. You couldn't sit around and wait and you guys came up with alternatives, that's the truth. What happens if you say yes and then two months down the line they still aren't sure whether they want to do it or not?
I would go with your gut on this hun. Good luck!

I think you could get away with saying "Well, since I hadn't heard from you for months, and I still don't know what size to get, I probably won't have time to go get the outfits myself. Here's what I'm envisioning; please go pick it up."
