Two days ago, I was asked to change my bridesmaids and flower girl dresses so that the girls could have more options to choose from. So I did. Today, while searching on etsy, I found the perfect solution, infinity dresses. That way, each girl could have the same fabric and length, but different tops, to suit thier personal style. So I texted all 4 of my bridesmaids and told them that I had picked out a dress that was going to be cheaper than DB, and it was floor length. (A little context, I have been asking my girls to pick out the length as a group for weeks.) One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man, who just recently had the balls to ask if she was my Maid/Matron of Honor, and get pissed off when I told her no, replied back that she “wasn’t a fan” of floor length, and then stopped texting me when i said, “okay, i understand, lets talk about it”. It frustrated me. Maid/Matron of Honor and I made the executive decision that they will be wearing floor length because no one else would, and Bridesmaid or Best Man gets mad. Ugh. I know this is nothing I should be upset over, especially not compared to what other girl’s Bridesmaid or Best Man are doing, but its really annoying. Thanks for letting me vent.

I really don’t get how BMs can be so awful about the dresses. The last wedding I was in, none of the BMs were a real big fan of the dress that was picked, and we knew none of us would ever wear it again, even though the bride thought we’d be able to… but we bought the dresses, had them altered, and wore them with pride. Yeesh. I don’t think it even occurred to any of us to try bargaining for something else. It’s not your wedding, you wear what’s given to you!

Ahh that’s too bad..I’m sorry you have to deal with a difficult bridesmaid. They should be okay wearing whatever is you want them to..it’s only for one day anyway. Tell them to suck it up!

UPDATE: My Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids are now ganging up and going B-mode on the difficult bridesmaid. I think we are going to go with floorlength, because it is what I like, and with this style of dress, they can pin it up and make it short for the reception if they would like to.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is taking 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping because I can’t make it (due to school and whatnot). She is planning on taking over and saying listen, its what she wants, and you can suck it up for one day. I love my take charge Maid/Matron of Honor. 🙂
