- Wedding: January 2014
Hi all fellow wedding planners..
So I have been engaged for roughly 6 months now, and not getting married for another 11 months, I;m so happy I have plenty of time to organise everything!!
When I discussed bridesmaid dresses with my 3 bridesmaids, I initially told them I liked light summerly pastel colours like peach, light pink, light blue, light green etc. As my wedding is an outside summer wedding, moving inside for reception.
Anyway, I was out shopping and found some amazing dresses, dark red, knee length silk with chiffon top layer. One shoulder strap. I thought they were so fabulous I had 2 of 3 try them on and they looked fantastic, so I brought all 3 for my bridesmaids.
Well, now the 3rd bm, my youngest sister is driving me mad, she got upset we went ‘dress shopping’ without her, that we decided without her, and that I purchased a dress 1 size too big for her. ( I tried to tell her that was the only one left!) She tells me she doesn’t like the dress, and thinks its not elegant enough for a wedding, not appropriate and we could do much better. I explained I was disappointed she didn’t like it as much as I did, but that I loved it, and it looked amazing on her. She agreed to wear it.
Now a few weeks later, she is texting me PICTURES of other dresses, and asking that we all go take a look and try them on, then gets really upset, and mad at me, when I say NO, I love the ones I have, and now I am planning everything else around that colour. She then tells me she doesn’t get my problem, its not like I’ve gone and brought anything else dark red yet and theres plenty of time for dress shopping still.
I don’t know what to do but ignore it, I asked her if she wanted to not be bridesmaid and she just threw a hissy fit calling me a bitch for wanting to take away from her. AAAAAHHH!
I hope i’m doing the right thing, they are the dresses I want them to wear, and its my wedding. (plus I paid for them!)
Thanks for reading 🙂
