- Wedding: July 2013
So my mother, future MIL and I went to go look at some limos this morning. We didn’t like the place we went to, so while I was at work, my mother took it upon herself to call another place and try and get an appointment. She then called my future MIL and asked her if the appointment time was ok with her. While they were on the phone, future MIL told my mother that future SIL (her daughter and bridesmaid) wants to order her bridesmaids dress ASAP and doesn’t care about cost or whatever.
Backtrack: Over the summer, 5 of my 6 BMs went to try on dresses (one is out of state) and they all decided on what they’re getting. I wanted them to pick dresses that were the same length, fabric, and color, but honestly don’t care about style. The place we tried dresses on is the same store I bought my dress at. The dresses they picked wound up being around $200-$250 each.
Subsequent to this appointment, I was feeling guilty and tried to help everyone out by finding the dresses cheaper. And I did. I live in northern NJ and NYC isn’t far, so there is a place in the city that sells the dresses for $130-$170. I was excited, everyone was on board, it was great. I told everyone I wanted to order the dresses in January as I’m getting married in July.
Future SIL is pregnant, due in April, so I understand if she wants to get measured now because by the wedding she’ll probably be at around the size she is now, instead of waiting until January to get measured when she’ll most have a baby belly.
Now, my mother is buying my two sisters their dresses. She went to the place in the city with my youngest sister on a day off from school to “check it out”. Of course, she hated the place (its essentially a warehouse and not a “salon”). I once again explained why I wanted to order from there and she eventually agreed. Once my future MIL told my mother that future SIL wants to order her dress ASAP and wants to just go back to the place where we originally tried the dresses on, now my mom booked an appointment for Oct 15th and told me she’s buying my two sisters their dresses then.
So, I called my three friends who are also in the wedding party (all currently long distance) and they’ve expressed that they want to order whereever its cheapest. And now I feel stuck.
…would anyone else be kinda pissed by this? Please tell me if I’m being ridiculous. Sorry for the long post.
