It sounds like you are a bit scared of being dubbed the ever dreaded bridezilla. Let me tell you something, you are the bride. No matter what people try to make you out to be, you have a very very strong say so in what happens in YOUR WEDDING. If your bridesmaid cannot understand that you want the dress to be a certain way for one day, then she is being selfish and immature. I would understand if the dresses started off shorter and she wanted to lengthen it for modesty reasons, but as you mentioned, this will be a church wedding and she should be mindful of this.

Adding to the fact that you are paying for the dress, she should NOT be putting up a fight about this. If she refuses to come to your side on this, she needs to pay for the dress or you need to find another bridesmaid. You need people on your wedding day who support you and lift you up, not bring you down and stress you out. End of story
