Laurenplusalex:  That dress! i love it! and in that color?! *Swoooon* What designer/dress is it?

Seriously, its a bridesmaids dress, it could be a hell of a lot worse, like the lime green nightmare i’m gonna have to wear next year. She will get over it 🙂

That dress is cute!  Is it David’s bridal?  If so, I tried it on for a friend’s wedding and was cute and very flattering on.  It is really tough to find a dress that is appropriate for 10-30 year olds!  I think that one is a perfect choice for your circumstances (and just cute regardless).  You could let them wear different dresses in the same fabric/color, but otherwise I’d just tell her that you really appreciate her going along with the same dress (and being in the wedding in general) and stress how hard it was to find something that accommodated everyone.

Laurenplusalex:  I was in a wedding a few years back for a very good friend of mine.  She had a hard time finding a dress so when she did, I just went along… let me tell you, I HATED this dress.  It was awful, unflattering, expensive and I hate all pix of me in it. But, she will never know that.  Because she was the bride, and it was her wedding, and she gave me the honor of being her bridesmaid.  Your Future Sister-In-Law can deal with it.  Maybe she doesn’t like it, but it’s not her choice.   Don’t even bother asking her if she likes it or not 🙂  That might just open up a huge can of worms, and lots of unnecessary drama.  She can deal for one day…don’t stress!

And not that my opinion really matters…but I think the dress is super cute!

She doesn’t have to like, she just needs to wear it. Stop looking for her input.

That dress is adorable. 

You know what? I never ever realized bridesmaids fighting over dresses was a ‘thing’ until I saw it on TLC. Seriously. I’ve been a bridesmaid…a lot..and guess what…I dealt with whatever I was given because it’s the BRIDES day, whether I hated it or not. It wasn’t up to me. I wore what was picked for me and that was that.
