@roseyposey: Can she wear a slightly different style from the same line to suit her “needs”. She is drama…but I think she is just hard on herself and girls like that need a firm but gentle push to go outside their comfort zone…

^^ This. So long as the dress is the same colour, fabric and length, I can’t see how a different neckline (for example) would be a problem.

Also, by offering her a small bit of compromise, you’re at least giving her some control over the process, which may be part of the issue here – she feels she’s being forced to pay for something she would not choose for herself.

@clairebbbear:  I agree.

Also don’t you want your BM’s to be comfortable and feel pretty on the day? Honestly if they don’t feel those things then it will come through in both the pictures and their attitude on the day.

Well I think your FI is majorly overreacting. I get it, your friend was negative and her whining ruined what should have been a fun day. That being said, I think booting a bridesmaid is pretty much something that should be done in extreme circumstances and I don’t think an isolated incident involving her low self esteem qualifies.
