Well it’s not as if she wasn’t invited to go to the store with you!  Maybe if she had actually shown up like she said she would, you could have taken some of her opinions into account.  Seeing as she didn’t show up, I don’t think you need to change everything just for her.  If she doesn’t want to wear it, that’s on her.  Tell her all the other bridesmaids will be wearing that, it’s decided, so if she refuses to wear it, well, she’s the one who looks ridiculous.

Can you get your FI to enlist his mom and aunt to help you with this? Maybe if they talk about how cute it is and how it will flatter everyone, FSIL might see reason. I mean, of course at the end of the day it’s your way or the highway, but I totally understand you wanting to minimize the drama.

Good luck!

@smcs28:  Awesome!  Well it is your wedding after all, and you did invite her for input, so that is the right response.

Btw and totally off topic, I absolutely LOVE your avatar!  (Huge Boston Bruins fan….we definitely said that about the Sedin twins during the Stanley Cup Playoffs last year!)

I think she is being passive agressive too.  I would just ignore her.  She buys the dress and is in the wedding or shes not.  You gave her plenty of opportunity to go to the appointment.  If she doesnt like the dress it is her fault, not yours.

My bad.   I can never tell sarcasm/passive aggressive-ness.  It is your wedding.  If you are happy with the dresses, then that’s all that matters.  It sounds like you really care about your wedding party and I’m sure you wouldn’t put them in something awful or that they would feel uncomfortable in.  Try not to let that one bridesmaid stress you.  Wedding planning is stressful enough!

I love that you are having a sports themed wedding too!  If I could, I would totally do a New England Patriots theme, but seeing as my fiance is from Houston, TX, I don’t think he would go for that lol.

Oh and also, if you have a pic of the dress you chose, I’d love to see it.  I still haven’t picked out my bm’s dresses Undecided (I’m a slacker)

@smcs28:  I don’t see how anyone would have a problem with that dress.  It’s classic and it looks like it would be very flattering on all different sizes.  Great job!

(P.s.  The color is also very Maple Leafs lol)

The dresses are gorgeous!! This girl sounds like a brat. She will never be happy because she’s not getting to make the decisions… think of how awful she’s going to be when it’s HER wedding!!!  Just take her comments with a grain of salt.
