Well, what are their reasons for not wanting to wear the dress that you like on both of them? Does it legitimately look bad on one of the girls? Because then that’s not going to look good in pictures either–not to mention, one of them will be unhappy and uncomfortable and that will show as well. If it’s a more petty reason (like one of them doesn’t like the color or something like that), that’s different and I think you’re within your rights to play the bride card. Also, how much are the dresses? If they’re expensive, then it becomes more difficult and unfair  to force one of them to wear something that she hates.

If your sister is the problem, could you get your mom to talk to her?  There’s nothing like a little mom guilt….

Not sure how your relationship is with your sister but I know mine and if she was acting like that I’d just tell her to knock it off and deal with it.

If you want to approach it more subtly why not tell her, “you look great in everything but Bridesmaid or Best Man #2 can’t rock the short and tight quite like you” and ask her if she’d mind going with something more conservative that will also look great on your other Bridesmaid or Best Man. That’s something that compliments her but doesn’t bring attention to the risque way she wants to dress. Just an idea. Good luck!
