- Wedding: March 2019
I am the MOH for my boyfriend’s sister’s wedding. I am having a MAJOR issue with the bride. Her wedding is in 8 months away and she’s pressuring me to buy a BM dress that I believe is out of my budget. She doesn’t earn an income and is relying on her parent’s to pay for her wedding (the wedding will be on a lower budget than most). I helped find a style and color for the BM dresses, but she’s picking ones that are $136-$180. Meanwhile, the wedding will be under $5000, and her wedding dress will be around $200. I told her in the beginning that I would prefer to have my BM dress be under $70 (as I am sure I can find a dress and I am a poor college student). She has a SUPER small Bridal party, 2 BM including myself. I have found dresses in the past that are of amazing quality for under $50. She wants me to buy a pricy dress, and if so have my boyfriend help pay with my dress… Both my boyfriend and I believe that is unfair (he too is a poor college student); (she’s choosing she should help pay if she really wants it). We have time to find the BM dresses and the only reason she wants us to get the $$$ is because she trusts the instore quality of a bridal store. I call BS. I really feel like walking out on this wedding because it’s become just chaotic and WAY too demanding.
I need advice on what to do, or if anyone has ideas of where I can get a BM dress (or a set of 2) that would each cost under $60 that is reliable.
I think finding dresses in bridal stores are not the only options…
