I’m blunt so this is how it’d go down. “yeah jen, if I was a baller like you, I would I’m not so I won’t now, drop it.” in my dead serious don’t f**k with me tone. She mention “cheap” again I’d blow up letting her know comments like that will NOT fly.

tell her there are more important things in life. she sounds pretty insecure if she’s so focused on expensive brand names.

wowww I would tell her to keep her opinions to her self. She doesnt have to love everything you do but as a friend she should just keep her mouth shut.

Honestly? I’d probably have told her to STFU and stop being a spoiled brat….but, I do have somewhat of a temper. 🙂 In a good state of mind, I’d probably have said something like “I don’t need an expensive dress to look good. Money doesn’t buy class.” Oh wait, those aren’t too terribly different. 😉

Sorry she lacked so much tact. Maggie dresses ARE beautiful, and some things in Kleinfeld are not. It’s all relative. I’m sure yours is gorgeous.

Say what?!?! That is so terrible. I’m sorry, but as someone who knows about CONSTRUCTION quality and TEXTILE quality, rather than just a designer name, I can tell you that Maggie Sottero has amazing quality for the price point. Has she even looked at a Maggie in person? 

Sure, they are less expensive, but they aren’t cheap at all. I am personally of the opinion that you get the most for your money from designers like Maggie Sottero and Allure. 

I would approach her and let her know that she hurt your feelings. IMO, if she’s not a good enough person to respect your feelings, why is she even your friend?

OMG, I’m such DIY and save save save kind of a girl.  I figure if people want to spend $30,000 on a wedding let em.  But I have better things to do with my money.

My sister ordered a bridesmaids dress in white and it was beautiful!!! It cost about $300 (expensive for a maid but cheap for a bride).  My sister is simple so this was a perfect cost saving idea.

@Pupperoni: Good. (Just so you know, I’m dead serious). If you say it “politely” chances are pretty good that she won’t grasp your distaste for her comments… so I’d take a harsher approach.

Sigh.  I don’t even see why this discussion is about your dress.  Whatever dress you chose isn’t an issue.  Is this girl really your friend?  I doubt it.  A good friend would never diss a bride’s wedding dress unless the bride specifically asked her opinion and her opinion was contructed as more of a helpful idea than an outright dig.

Why is she your bridesmaid?

You should let her know that Kleinfields sells Maggie Sottero…I tried one on there.

@bride2beIn2012: tell her this and then scream “BOOYAH!!!”

 

Sorry, I seem to have the mind of a 14 year old today.

@bride2beIn2012: I thought so too. The best part is I know they carry gowns that many other stores do (like Mori Lee’s). They just mark them up more to make them seem better! But hey, people are wiling to pay for it…

I was also going to point out that FYI Kleinfeld’s sells Maggie dresses.  I’ve seen several brides on SYTTD wearing and purchasing Adorae.
