Sounds rough!  Maybe you can help her come up with a process for making decisions.  Like a suggestion box.  Everyone gets a vote.  Take each vote (each idea represented only once) and then the bride picks from those.  No discussions. 

Sounds like the group needs a good reminder that they are there for input but ultimately to support the bride making her own decisions.

I personally would refuse to wear a dress that shows my belly button so I can’t fault the other BM’s for that!

But there is a big difference between being a considerate bride and being a push over. The only person who can make a difference here is the bride- she needs to (and I don’t mean this to sound harsh) grow a backbone and take some control.

It is really nice that you are concerned about your friend so maybe talk to her about how you have noticed that her sister tend to walk all over her (which she probably already realises) and maybe bring some suggestions to the table on how she can gain more confidence about being more proactive in voicing her opinion. But if this has been behaviour she has allowed for a long time then it will be hard to chane instantly (both for the bride and those in her family taht walk all over her).
