The colour of that dress you posted was really nice.  Maybe assure them that they will look beautiful, especially with the flowers.

The dress is so pretty.

1)  Love the gray and yellow concept.

2) Last I checked, it’s your wedding and they agreed to be bridesmaids, which means doing whatever the bride wants.  And you’re not being a bridezilla anyway.

3) I LOVE that dress.  I wish some of my brides had put thought into the silhouette and material!

I love that dress and would rather wear that than bright blue…also, I wouldn’t be bitching if the bride had generously offered to pay for a part of the dress. It can easily be worn again and it’s a flattering neutral color, so they’re kind of being whiny.

I love it!!  Just let them know they can sell it on ebay or craigslist afterwards if they don’t wanna wear it again.

I am in the wedding party for my best friend who picked black for her Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.  One of our other friends who is a bridesmaid (and one of my MOHs) was complaining at first too.  She thought Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses should be colorful.  My friend the bride told her to suck it up, and I already pre-warned her that I wanted her and the rest of my wedding party in a gray chiffon dress of their choosing.  She wasn’t thrilled at first, but she loves us, so she’s dealing with it and looking at the bright side of having dresses that are totally re-wearable. 

So no, you are not being a bridezilla!  

 

PS if, your girls don’t want to keep the dress after, send me a message!  I know at least one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man wants that exact dress you picked out!!

no. you are not being a ‘zilla. if you specified from the get go that they would all be wearing a colour of your choosing & they said yes then they have to grin and bear it.

 

it would be different if you had said that they could pick whatever they want, but that is not the case.

I think the grey looks gorgeous! (i could be biased though!)

 

eta: who makes the dress?

wow… I understand maybe not liking the dress because of the way it fit or made them look but adding another color to your wedding because they don’t llike the grey???? just wow… I really like that dress, color included.

Its hard for people to imagine what your color scheme is based on just looking at one color. I had a hard time convincing anyone that I wanted green shoes for my wedding.

I found some pics of bridemaids w grey dresses, maybe if they see what your final look will be, they’ll be less bitchy.

Wow.  That’s crazy.  I’ve been having issues with Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses as well, and I’m having a grey and yellow wedding also.  I think that dress is beautiful.  It is really nice that you offered to pay a portion of them, and they should be thankful.  Blue isn’t your wedding color, so I don’t even know why they would say that.

Tell them they are wearing grey!! Lol!  It’s your wedding!!
