- Wedding: April 2014
Thanks girls for confirming that I am not wrong I Just posted a pic for every one to see. I did not show them the dress but I did describe it to them before I bought them. I was on the thought that I am not asking anyone to pay for it so there should be no problem at all. I also told them that they are welcome to customize it as they wish some are putting thicker straps, my Maid/Matron of Honor is chaning the color lining under it, some are putting a sash under the breasts. I dont care if they are all a little different but I want the same basic dress. I am liking the ideas of smacking them since they are my fiances cousins, he is on board with smacking them too. Oh and I forgot to mention that one of the lovely three had the balls to say to me, that i should not make the Bridesmaid or Best Man jewelry I should buy it handmade gifts are tacky. (after i made 10 pearl necklaces bracelets, and earrings)
I’ll be honest, it’s not my favorite dress, but I would be THRILLED if you paid for my dress and wouldn’t care what it was. I like the “if I pay I get a say” rule for bridesmaids (though the bride gets final veto power), but if you’re paying, tell them to dress up and shut up.
Oh my goodness! I adore that dress! The great thing about it too is that it actually looks like it could be worn again. I didn’t understand the complaint before but now I’m even more confused. I’m sorry you have to deal with this. I hope maybe you can talk some sense into them.
gahhh tell them to suck it up. It’s only for a day! lol
They shouldn’t be in it for the “loot”. They just sound difficult. The dress is lovely, and they don’t even have to pay for it. Do they have any specific complaints on the dress? It’not like it’s too short or too revealing, which might be an understandable complaint. You’re also letting them customise if they want, which means someone can wear a cardig if they’re uncomfortable with arms, etc (though what Bridesmaid or Best Man dress doesn’t show arms these days).
Tell them “these are the dresses, I’ve paid for them. If you don’t want to wear it, then you can choose your own dress as a guest.” (Basically, what everyone else said 🙂
uh, that dress is very cute. If you paid for them, what these BM’s WANT does not matter. ugh. What the heck?
I was expecting something truly hideous given the fuss they’re making. The dress is fine! The style would look terrible on me I’ll admit, but I can wear anything for a good friend for one day.
I would definitely let them step down if they’re going to be that ridiculous about the dress. Sheesh!
That dress is really cute! Perfect for a beach-themed wedding!
I’m sorry, but after reading the comment about the jewelry, those bi-atches do not deserve the honor in being in your wedding. Can I be a bridesmaid instead? 😉
It’s a great dress! And let’s face it, it’s your day, not theirs! These girls are nuts.
and my wedding is on miami beach it would look silly with a traditional bridesmaids dress, as this dress would look silly in a lavish country club. I have spent 150+ on many Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that I have worn once and then donated.
