This is probably going to sound harsh, but…. I personally think your sis needs to STFU & wear the green. In My Humble Opinion as long as the dress covers her bits and isn’t terrible to wear (not too tight/too short/otherwise embarrasing etc) then she should suck it up. I think as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, you sign up knowing that you’re wearing what the bride wants, not something you’ve chosen yourself.

Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t imagine calling my sister & whinging about being forced to wear her fave colour for her wedding – not cool.

I kinda understand where she’s coming from, but that doesn’t mean she had the right to blow up on you.

Just let her know you were going to assign the dresses that way before the girls even picked, so either way she’s going to wear green. She hates green? Too bad, not her wedding.

First talk to her and explain to her you want her in green. it’s your wedding, your rules. If she keeps threatening resigning to get her way, I’d let her bow out. If she’s going ape shit over this, she’s going to just cause you more and more stress anytime she disagrees with you. Not worth it.

@MrsPadlock2B:  I agree – I’m about to be a bridesmaid for second time (both with green dresses!!) Green isn’t my thing either, but in both cases I love my mates so if they want me to wear a green dress, I do it. I don’t like having my nails done either – but if the bride wants us to have matching manicures, I do it.

I hated my first Bridesmaid or Best Man dress colour (maroon – yuck) but had to suck it up. Your sister sounds a little like a whinging brat; the best you can do is tell her to either negotiate with the other Bridesmaid or Best Man to trade dresses or bow out. So not your problem; you’re having 2 blue and 2 green and they can sort out the dynamics.

@romancandleburn: I’m sorry, it still sounds drama queen. At the end of the day, she’s still just being asked to wear a dress for 12hrs for her own sister’s wedding. You’re not asking her to slit her own throat.

I had a similar problem. Posted dress after dress online… and one Bridesmaid or Best Man rejected them all. Finally, after around 9-10 months of searching (boy, am I glad it was the first thing I started to do during planning!) I just chose and told her to suck it up. You should do the same. You don’t want to be a bridezilla, sure… but if you give an inch then some people will take a mile.
