- Wedding: October 2011
So, I am not one of those girls that want everything to be matching in my wedding when it comes to the bridal party clothes. My bridesmaids are wearing different dresses but are black and chiffon. I did this because I hate telling someone they have to buy X dress for X money rather they like it or look good in it or not.
So for the mother’s, all 4 of them, I just said the following : ” I don’t care where you get your dresses. The color scheme should be in the ranges of black, champagne, silver, and red. Also needs to be a floor length gown. And if you wear black PLEASE don’t get all black , since A. it’ll make you look like a bridesmaid, and B. I don’t want too much black in my wedding.
I thought this was being reasonable. From both FMIL’s I have caught serious flack. BOTH bought all black dresses, without even consulting me first. My future step mom’s dress is a little less aggravating it is tea length and has 3/4 sleeves.It is more weather appropriate since we are getting married outside in 3 weeks. She is pretty heavyset and expressed how she felt huge in lighter colors and couldn’t find anything but an all black dress. So I let this go.
NOW my FMIL on the other hand bought this little gem.
Something I don’t deem appropriate for a 46 y.o. mother of the groom! And she is no petite flower she is well endowed and is 5’9″ . Me also being pretty tall , I know that short dresses look even shorter when you have such long legs. It is all black, and I believe she will look like a guest and stick out because all the other Mother’s have very elegant gowns.
I told her I didn’t think the dress was appropriate and that I wish she would get something NOT all black and at least tea length if not floor length. What does she do ? She calls me a Bridezilla, states that she WILL NOT buy a floor length gown, and that she will buy a bolero to wear over it in a different color “only for pictures” . And then she hangs up on me -_-
This is the same women that wore a tea length bright yellow dress that was $160 from David’s Bridal for her daughter’s wedding, because her daughter demand she bought that dress……. But me giving her options with a few guidelines is being a bridezilla?!
I don’t know what is wrong with this women? Do I seem out of line?!!
