@amandabones:  that dress is pretty! gah those girls are being horrible i could not imagine someone having the BIG HAIRY MAN BALLS to tell a bride 9 friggen weeks before her wedding that they are not going to wear the dresses especially if you paid for them all. i would punch somebody. maybe im just being irritable today bt i would tell then to eather wear the dress and STFU or wear what they want and sit in the audience if they even can be bothered to come.

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.

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 🙂

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.

@amandabones:  It’s a nice looking dress. Suitable for a beach wedding. However, I do think you should have shown them the dress BEFORE you bought it for them. Not that I think you would have changed your mind, but that you would have had to iron this out at least a while back and not 9 weeks before the wedding. You should tell them that if they don’t like the dress, they can take a seat in the audience. Too bad though, it’s only 9 weeks away. Kinda crummy of them.
