- Wedding: June 2014
Right please don’t shoot me down on this one, the reason I’m having to ponder this is because I find it a bit to sensitive to directly ask my bm
Rightio: in the UK we buy our bridesmaids their outfits and this one in particular cost a fair bit. After months of looking, far longer than I spent on my own dress, we found a lovely tea length lace overlay dress with 3/4 length sleeves. I also have got her a nice cardi to go with it, the hair accessory, shoes and some jewellry in her gift.
She’d mentioned wearing leggings if she had a short dress when we first started looking, I thought she was just joking but apparently not. I don’t want to sound like a bridezilla but I really really do not want her wearing leggings at my very old fashioned english country garden wedding. I feel a bit stupid because if I had taken her seriously then I could have steered her towards something more plain and we could have got some lace tights to go with it, however anything to ‘busy’ is going to clash with the dress. I’ve thought of coloured tights but the dress is light blue, I could find some white tights?
If anyone has any links or suggestions then please help me out! She is a plus size so it’s been fairly difficult to find things. I love her to bits, and she is very cool and into quirky fashion but also incredibly self consious.
Oh and there is no room in the budget to find a new dress, the last one was custom fit and non returnable.
