I picked my colors, they were chocolate brown and light pink. I have 6 bridesmaids and one of them lives out of town. I sent her a swatch of fabric of the color that I had chosen for them to wear, a deep chocolate brown and explained in a letter that this was the color they would wear, I was letting them choose the dress, it could be tea length or long but just in that color. Well, three days later she called my mom and told her that, that color made her skin look darker and could she wear ivory and brown and my mother said yes. How do I explain to her that she can’t ??? That brown is the color that I liked and this is my wedding. I really can’t tell her she can’t be in it because she is a really close family member but I want to explain to her that these are my colors and I won’t change them just for her.

No offense but she has some nerve to go to your Mom. Your Mom is not the bride and the nerve of your Mom to make these decisions for you without thinking twice to ask you about it first. It’s your wedding. Put your foot down.

Is she your MOH? If so, maybe she could wear light pink. Or maybe a light pink wrap with the brown dress?
That said, I do think she was out of line going to your mom. Just call her up or e-mail her and let her know that your mom was confused about the dresses. Also talk to your mom, so this doesn’t happen again!

I can’t believe she asked your mother! You should call her and say that is what she has to wear, and in the future if she has questions about your wedding she should speak to you directly. Also, what part of the dress would be ivory? I assume you will be wearing white or ivory – she has quite the nerve to ask if she could wear ivory!

I think she called your mom knowing full well what you would say to the answer. I would call her and let her know it wasn’t your moms decision to make and she has the swatch. The wedding isn’t about her – and she needs to know that.
I never realized until starting to plan my wedding how rude other people can really be…..the world is going to dumps I tell ya!
