Uh, totally don’t get it.  I have no idea why they’d say that.  Strange stuff.

I’ve never heard of this before.  Maybe they just perceive brides as putting their BMs into ugly dresses and such.  Have there been other friend/family weddings where BMs were made to wear dresses that weren’t very attractive?  or asked to do embarressing things?  Maybe that’s where it comes from?

They showed little tact.  Maybe they were joking, not really that funny.

Excuse me?  WTF is that supposed to mean?

Considering you let them pick their own attire, I have no idea where this might be coming from, but I’d be pretty miffed at that comment.  They make it sound like they’re embarrassed to be your friends and standing up for you on your wedding day.

I’m so sorry they said that, I’d be pretty hurt.

Good for you for keeping your cool!! I would’ve gotten snarky back and said “Well, I wasn’t planning on it, but thank you for the reminder. Now I will make sure I will! I might not even wait until wedding day. Can I get started now?”
