My moh (16 yr. old sister) is rebelling against the dress which she actually helped me design. I must admit it didn’t come out perfect … and it wasn’t exactly what I’m thinking … and shes young so the style might have not been right for her .. anyway.
I made a frantic call to the bridal shop and they pulled several dresses … one of them being an iridescent pink … which actually looks beautiful next to the flower girl and ring boy outfit.
So we’ll see this week what happens.
The original dress is sapphire blue …
So I may have a pink and blue wedding … which is trendy but I’m not doing it to follow trends.

Hojeez. Do you have pics of the design and/or dress? I’m having Bridesmaid or Best Man issues with wearing/not wearing dresses too. And while you respect your sister and want her to be happy, I also think you need to be happy with the decision. After all, it’s YOUR day!! Good luck, everything will work out how it’s supposed to!! 🙂

Oh no! I was that moh for my sister, heh! I was also a teenager at the time and the dress just didn’t fit – literally or age-wise. I was kinda a brat about it and now I feel bad. 🙁 But it was a really ugly dress!! 🙂

I’m just freaking out about the colors. I designed everything around her blue dress. She might change to PINK! Lol. The pink does look good next to the blue …. ahhh
I just emailed my planner to see what she thinks.
My sister is the only one standing with me … so she is just one girl to dress … which makes it not so bad.

Thank you. You know what? I made a phone call to the bridal salon I am getting my dress from and they are like heaven sent. They made me feel so calm and just went to work to make everything smooth. So we should even be able to waive any rush fees too. Hopefully she cooperates!

Whaaaat? She needs a little sit down. I hope it all works out. Teenagers are so… fun. :p

You are being a good sister – I would just say, “You’re wearing this dress, you brat!” Haha!
Seriously though, I can see a really lovely pink dress looking great with a blue wedding. I love bits of contrast. We are having dark purple bridesmaids’ dresses and not much dark purple anywhere else – to me, its elegant in an unexpected way. So if you and your sister want to go that direction, I say do it! Or if you want to be mean and force her to wear the dress, do that too…

You are being especially patient with her…kudos to you, this is not the time for this time of stress. However, the bright side is….she could have pulled this stunt the week before the wedding causing much more problems. So….if you can manke it work with a pink dress, go for it. She’s there weith you and you’re getting married to the man of your dreams. Make that special day about you and not her, let it go.

I think your sister is being selfish! She should just wear what you so graciously let her HELP YOU design. I mean, that is some generosity on your part. Hope it works out. I think pink and blue are nice colors by the way. And since she’s 16, I guess hot irridescent pink is super “in” now, at least according to my most recent Glamour =]
