@Everdeen:  These pictures are gorgeous.  Mixing the sides was unheard of in my generation but I do love that this is being done now!

Why not offer to let her wear whatever it is she is comfortable with?

I can’t help myself anymore… the title of this thread always cracks me up.  Makes me tink “What?  As opposed to a male groomswoman?”

We had a best woman. She wore the same dress as the bridesmaids but in black.

FI’s sister wants to be a groomsman (We asked her if she wanted to be in the wedding party and let her choose a side). I really want her to wear a dress, but she wants to be a groomsman so she can wear a bowtie. We’re letting her decide what she wants to wear but she, like her brother, is fashion stupid. She’s 21 years old and didn’t know what a blouse or blazer was. No idea of what it means to dress professionally, let alone semi-formally. Unfortunately his family is very, “Do what you want and don’t let anyone tell you what to do, be an individual,” which is all fine and dandy until they’re in a situation where they HAVE to look or act a certain way and then get offended that they aren’t allowed to be a special snowflake. 

So, I will be working with her very closely to find something she’s happy with that also works with what we have planned for the wedding. Not looking forward to it.

DH was in a wedding a few years back where there was a groomswoman. She wore a black dress, but the straps and bow on it was the same color as the mens’ ties. It looked great!
