nittanybride14:  PLEASE tell me she’s not in your wedding party!!

Honestly, no one will care about the flower girl dress (not to sound harsh), I’m sure it’ll look fine!!

You’re making a whole lot of stress and drama for yourself over what’s essentially a completely unimportant detail. The flower girls do not have to match dresses and no one is going to care what they are wearing, even if they are wearing burlap sacks. Everyone knows kids grow unpredictably when they’re young so *if* the girl’s dress fits as poorly as you describe, everyone’s just going to chalk it up to a cute little kid who had a growth spurt.  The bridal party absolutely does not need to vote on flower girl dresses.  Just put some basic guidelines on a dress (and I mean basic, like “baby pink to medium pink but not hot pink, poofy skirt and knee length”) and let the girls’ moms pick out the dresses.  If you’re really obsessed with the girls having identical dresses and a specific look, then get their measurements and go buy (and pay for) the dresses yourself. Otherwise, just accept that no one cares what their dresses look like, and let it go.

I literally Lol’d about the bagel cutter. Do you mind posting a pic of the dress?

Yes! Let’s see it!

Your SIL sounds nuts. Poor your brother!

Also, isn’t a bagel cutter just… a knife?

nittanybride14:  I’m wondering if someone lied about there only being one left in each size. I just looked and it seems that all sizes are still available…

That said, even if it is “just the flower girl dress”, I still think you deserve to have your flower girls wear dresses that YOU like too. I’m confused as to why your SIL feels the need to be so involved.

nittanybride14:  Lol, my jaw just dropped. That’s the dress I wanted my niece to wear for our wedding. hahahha. So what you’re saying is, pick another dress? haha.

BTW, I can relate to SIL drama. She’s the only one who has caused drama in my wedding too.

My advice, let her pick the dress and move on, especially if she’s paying for it. Like people said, no one will really care what they wear. They’re kids and everyone will ‘awwwww’ as they walk down the aisle no matter that they’re wearing. If the dress is a big deal to you, then just pick one you like and leave it at that.

nittanybride14:  I’ll probably avoid the dress, thanks for the tip!

And sorry that happened to you! Bleh, some people! Happy you got to vent, and hopefully it’ll get better. 🙂

nittanybride14:  It looks so pretty online! Too bad it’s not in person. But like PPs said, no one will care at all. Haha she’ll make you look even better in your awesome dress!

I was hoping for a story about how a cute little 6 year old took over the wedding planning or something! Just kidding of course, but that’s what the title made me think!

Sorry you’re frustrated.  If I were you, I’d just pick out the dress you want and repeat over and over to your SIL, “This is the dress I’ve chosen, I hope you’ll find a way to be happy with what I want.” Best of luck!
