My wedding id next july so i have 13 months until my big day BUT my bridesmaids cannot agree on a gown!
I picked on the maid of honor likes and than the bridesmaid (i have just the 2) didn’t like it, so i picked another and the maid of honor doesnt like that one GRRR ladies seriously!
the bridesmaid doesnt want the first one because its two long, and the Maid/Matron of Honor doesnt like the second one because she likes the first one than tells me it was like ones in her first wedding. I did not know this because i didnt know her than, so now i feel akward but i like the 2nd dress that the bridesmaids like.
And if they can’t agree im going to lose it, im being nice by letting them pick what they like but i wont let them call the shots!.. i dont want to be a bridezilla but there making it hard!!

I can understand wanting to do something they like/agree on but at some point to avoid all of this you need to say “this is the dress i’d like you to wear for my wedding, end of story.” and let that be the end of it.. There are A LOT of brides out there who don’t even give an option, and pick the dress, tell them to go get measured and get it ordered. Sounds harsh but it’s true. Granted my girls we are all super cooperative and I never once expected them to throw a fit so I wasn’t worried. But just tell them since they can’t all agree on something, at this point you’ll decide. It’s your wedding. They can pick the dress they want their bridesmaids to wear for their wedding.
ETA: Just saw you have 13 months until your wedding. You have time to find something. Don’t stress.

Option 1: let them all pick different cuts of dress in the same fabric and colour. Heaps of bridal stores do this and heaps of wedding photos show that it looks lovely.
Option 2: get their sizes and buy the dresses yourself. This is what I did. Not a word of complaint.

Can your Maid/Matron of Honor wear the dress she likes and the BM’s wear the one they like?
You still have 13 months so why not ask them to go shopping together (if it is possible) and try on a few AT 13 months this is not somethign to be losing it over.
