I just need a place to vent about everything that has happened in the past 3 days.
I just wrote a post about how my BM’s finally got together and picked out a dress they want. It’s a Dessy in style #2895. Both of my bridesmaids came up to me and offered to pay for their own dress months ago. The dress came to $338. I couldn’t believe it! I told them so many times that they do not have to spend that much money on a dress and we could look elsewhere. They both told me they loved it and not to worry.
So my Maid/Matron of Honor bought her dress, but my other Bridesmaid or Best Man said she “forgot” her wallet and only had $40 in cash on her. The bridal shop owner said that was fine, she wasn’t going to actually order the dresses until Monday (today) and my Bridesmaid or Best Man could bring in the 50% deposit before she orders the dresses.
So afterwards we all went out to dinner where my Bridesmaid or Best Man was going around complaining about how much the dress cost! I couldn’t believe it…I told her she did not have to pay that much multiple times. It really hurt my feelings because everyone was looking at me like some type of bridezilla who is making her pay an arm and a leg for a dress she offered to buy herself.
After dinner, I went home and started doing some research and found the dresses online for only $182. I texted my Bridesmaid or Best Man telling her that so she was thrilled (and I was too, because honestly, my WEDDING DRESS only costs $300!)
So this is where it starts getting complicated. After a lot of phone calls to the shop, they decided to cancel her order since she didn’t put a deposit down. However, my Maid/Matron of Honor is stuck in her contract since she already paid in full for her dress.
My Bridesmaid or Best Man is going to buy her dress online for $182, and I told my Maid/Matron of Honor I would pay for her alterations, shoes, hair & makeup since her dress is going to cost over $100 more than the other Bridesmaid or Best Man. Now I think my Bridesmaid or Best Man is mad that I’m not paying for her alterations, shoes, hair & makeup. UGH I feel like I can’t please anyone.
