- Wedding: October 2011
Hi Ladies! I need to know if I am being unreasonable…
I have taken a very flexible approach (I think) with the dresses. My MoH and I went to the J. Crew Madison Avenue, and she tried on all of the dress options. We picked the dress material she liked the best in the color I liked the best. There were 6 dresses to choose from in that color and fabric when we chose the dresses.
Of the five bridesmaids, three have their dresses already. The last two (ironically my sister and my FSIL) have not ordered dresses. Which should be fine as the wedding is in October. BUT J Crew is discontinuing several of the dresses leaving very limited options and frankly some dresses I totally hate (I held onto dress veto power but I haven’t had to use it) FSIL will be in town but keeps breaking dates to schedule an appointment. Trouble is I KNOW that if she doesn’t get the dress, my FMIL will insist she still stand up just wearing some other dress….which will completely ruin the entire point of being flexible!!! With my own sister I can just order the dress for her and leave her responsible for alternations, I have a susipicion she’s trying to be one size smaller by wedding day so I don’t want to push her.
What do DO?
