    I would be annoyed. I think as the bride you have the right to insist they were something in  line with the rest of the wedding party- whether that be a pant suit (maybe you could give a little and let them where sequined shoes or something) or the dress.

    Part of being in the wedding party is wearing what is dictated by the bride and groom.  You gave up part of this control by allowing them to choose their own outfits, but you absolutely still have the right to veto something that isn’t appropriate for your wedding – if these suits don’t match your bridal party vision, then by all means tell them “no” flat-out.

    I think since they’re FI’s friends, he needs to speak to them about what kind of outfit you/he had in mind and draw a line – they need to choose outfits and have them approved by you & FI by xx date or they cannot stand up in the wedding. He should also provide them with a few guidelines to make sure they know what will be acceptable.

    I don’t get it are they acutally a part of the wedding party?

    That being said just because they are female doesn’t mean they get to show up in what is basically a costume for your wedding. Why can’t they wear basic black dresses? If they want to wear a suit, there are plenty of nice womens suits that are approriate out there.

    I’m so glad our groomswomen aren’t trying to be showy. They’ve agreed to a groomsperson suit or a bridesperson dress. That’s what your ladies agreed to and they need to ship up or be warned they won’t be standing with you. It’s one thing to alter a suit to be more flattering for a female form- it is a different thing for them intentionally trying to be super sexy by wearing a revealing costumy suit. That wouldn’t be appropriate in any wedding including guests unless you had specified it would be a costum-y wedding.
