- Wedding: September 2015
Thanks for all the input Bees! I do just want to clear one thing up- it’s not that I don’t like the dress she chose. It’s a pretty dress, if not a little more formal than I’d like. She just doesn’t look good in the dress. It’s not one made for a girl with her body shape and size, and that’s probably where the miscommunication with her began because I didn’t want to outright tell her that the dress that made her feel like a princess didn’t make her look like one…I was too nice in that regard and should have been clearer with her. I see now that I probably made her feel not so great (though I’m positive she would have felt worse upon seeing pictures of herself in the dress she wanted).
After considering the advice I’ve gotten here and talking to my mother, I’ve pretty much settled on just buying her the $40 dress I picked out for her that she refuses to order. Worst case scenario, she refuses to wear it and I’m down a bridesmaid. Best case, she wears it, looks awesome, and this is no longer an issue.
