I have a small wedding party and my sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor. I have my Maid/Matron of Honor in a different color than the bridesmaids as she looked so good in the color and I didn’t mind having her stand out. All the girls also have different style dresses as well (don’t ask!)
Since everyone is different I want all the girls to have matching jewelry which I bought…diamond heart pendent necklaces. After I purchased them, my sister said that she wanted red jewlery to match her dress. I wound up finding a pretty necklace in the perfect color, so I bought that too! I showed my Maid/Matron of Honor who said she loved it. So I bought matching earrings and a ring for Maid/Matron of Honor and the same necklaces for the other girls as well so everone will at least will have the same necklace.
I gave my sister the whole set the other day in which she said she loved it…and now today she tells me that she thinks a choker type necklace would be better!
I’ve had it!! At this point I really don’t care if she likes the stuff or not! I personnaly think she should just say “thank you” and wear it!
Am I wrong?

Oh I think you have already done more than enough. It’s a case of you give em an inch and they take a mile. If you try to cater to every little thing everyone wants, you’ll go crazy.

Yes, I think you are done trying to please her. You gave it your best shot. If she brings up that a choker might look better, just nod and smile. If she wants to go out and buy herself one, that’s up to her.

Forgive her terribe breach of etiquette and tell her to wear the damn necklace you picked out!

@Niki: well said!!
I think you’ve definitely gone above and beyond here and the fact that she doesn’t really seem to be that grateful would annoy me personally.

I think you’re being pretty accommodating in the first place in allowing her to have a different color dress, etc from the others! But its true, you give an inch, and they attempt to take a mile…
