- Wedding: October 2013
Okay so 3 weeks ago we went bridemaid dress shopping. I really wanted the girls to be able to be comftable in the dresses and make sure the price was what everyone wanted I never wanted to be a bride that just picked a dress and told them to order it. All 5 of the girls and I went shopping. After 45 mins they all picked the same dress. I went in there saying as long as it was the same length, fabric, designer, and color they could have different styles. Because I know that not everyone is the same body shape. Everyone picked a gorgeous dress and they all wanted that. Now the price tags were on all the dresses the dress they picked was a bill levokk and was $230. Now the issue we are having. My friend one of the bridesmaid informed me about 4 weeks ago that she is pregrant I was so excited for her. She informed me that her due date is September 20th. Our wedding is October 4th. Knowing that these dates were so close I sat down with her and told her I would love for her to be in the wedding and its her choice that she wants to do I didn’t want her to think that I would be disappointed if she decided it was too close because it is!! She said that she def wanted to be in the wedding and she wants to make it work because she wants to be in the wedding so bad. So I told her when we go dress shopping we can look at maternity dresses or a different dress that will be more flowy for her. So when we went shopping we found a pretty maternity dress that was the same fabric length and designer that the girls were looking it. but looked great but she said that she doesn’t want a maternity dress. The store informed her that she can get the same dress as the girls but she will need to find a seamstress that will alter about 3 days before the wedding. Now the maternity dress was around 160 obv cheaper then the girls dress and it wouldn’t require as much work as a normal dress that will need a lot of alternations that means more money. But I told her its her choice. She said she wants to do the girls dresses.
sooooo fast forward 2 weeks she comes to me when we have her and her boyfriend over for dinner and says that she her and some of the girls might want to look at cheaper dresses I got upset I didn’t want my girls thinking I was having them buy an expensive dress I started talking to all of them. They all said that they are competely fine with the price and they love the dress I think my friend might have said that so it doesn’t seem like she’I the only one So she tells me that she thinks we should go to David’s bridal because they have 99 dollar dresses. So I agreed to look online with her. I hated all of the dresses and most of the dresses she was showing me was 160 the same price as the maternity dress.
Okay so here is my dilemma I love the designer and the dress we picked. My MOH wants that dress she is kinda mad because she doesn’t get why we would be going again. I do not want to go to David’s bridal not that I have anything against them I justnreally like the dress shop we went to and not to add they let the girls pay half when the dress is ordered and then half in 5 months when the dress is in. I told my friend we can go look again Thursday but I’m upset if everyone loves that one dress and she’s the only one that doesn’t want to pay I don’t know what to do I know that she is pregnant and that’s why I kept suggesting the maternity dress its so cute it doesn’t look like a pregnant dress and its cheaper. The dress she wants at David’s is a silk dress with the slit up the side I don’t think it’s approatite ESP for my 14 FSIL and that’s not the vision we are going for.
here are the dresses
