- Wedding: October 2014 - Our Backyard/Steakhouse
Okay, so today we went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping…me, my Maid/Matron of Honor, my only other Bridesmaid or Best Man (FI sister), my mom and Fiance Nana. Let me preface this by saying my Maid/Matron of Honor and my Bridesmaid or Best Man are VERY different body types so I thought I’d like to have them get dresses from the same line, but in styles that would suit them each best. No problem.
My Maid/Matron of Honor must have pulled 45 dresses to try (she likes to play dress up) and it was an opportunity to find something that would be nice so great! My other Bridesmaid or Best Man pulled about 5 and was visibly uncomfortable trying on any of them. It was like it pained her to be there.
My Maid/Matron of Honor found two that we really liked, and the Bridesmaid or Best Man found one that she found ‘tolerable’ but is floor length and I wanted knee length. Well, turns out the two Maid/Matron of Honor found don’t come in the colour I want and I do NOT want the dresses long so we were a no go on either front.
My one Bridesmaid or Best Man then tells me she wants it long so she can wear cowboy boots. AFter I had indicated that I wanted them in black dress shoes….she says she wants her ‘personality’ and style to be included.
WTF? Whose wedding is this????
So, I’m tempted to message them both and say: Here are the parameters – dark grey, knee length, black dress shoes. Do what you want. and leave it…
