Oh wow! It sounds like you might need to stick up for yourself a bit. Do you even like the idea of having a Renaissance fair dress? Because that’s a big jump from most weddings, and will definitely change your theme if it isn’t already renaissaince.

I’m a little confused.

You now only have 2 bridesmaids, but want to replace the one who can’t make it?

And your Maid/Matron of Honor has a dress and your 3rd brides maid is still looking?

What is your issue exactly?

wow.. I’m just letting my girls pick (and buy) their own dress as long as it’s the same (exact) color. That way they like it and I won’t have to worry about one not liking it and the other not being able to afford it.. yikes.

But Yay for 3 a side bridal parties! (:

Well, I would like to think these ladies can be grown up and understanding. Just try to talk to her and be honest that you know this is INSANE, but sometimes weddings are insane and you have to go with it.

I think the idea of a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that you’ll wear again while nice ITS ALL LIES. ok ok, not all lies, but mostly lies. I have 3 dresses that I swore I’d wear again and have not. I would never buy a dress based on that. Just make sure she picks a dress she is comfortable in and you both like it enough.

Also, I wouldn’t worry too much about matching the dresses to the guys. I don’t really think it has to be matched, I am a true believer in flexibility. You’re wedding will look lovely no matter what. Plus its cheaper (usually) to change a guys accessories as opposed to a dress.

If it makes you feel better we’re having a lop sided wedding party. We had asked friends of ours (married couple) to both be in the wedding party, long story short, they are getting divorced and she’s left the country. We debated having someone else step up, but in the end we kept the people we’d chosen first. Sure, numbers are lopsided, but if people are really going to pay attention to that they arent watching the freaking ceremony closely enough –>VOWS BEING RECITED OVER HERE PEOPLE!

 

Hope you get things sorted out!
