- Wedding: November 2012
I’ve tried, but can’t get on board with the tradition Bridesmaid or Best Man dress…find a style and color and ordering the same dress for all my girls. I’ve been searching for alternatives….convertible dresses, non-traditional prints, and toying with the idea of letting my choose whichever dress they want in whatever shade of purple they want and just letting it go. All of these options appeal to me.
I also have another issue. Both my mother, and FI’s mother have expressed concern about coordinating with the bridal party. FI’s mother DOES NOT look good in any shade of purple, she knows this, I know this, she won’t dare wear purple. THAT’S FINE and I don’t care. My mother keeps bring up my uncle’s wedding from 15 years ago where she wore fushia and my grandmother wore red and it looks awful in pictures…I don’t care.
I want both mothers to look drop-dead gorgeous, and I really don’t care what color/style the choose, and I want something non-traditional for BM’s…but every time I talk about this, everyone gets in huff about coordination. I just don’t understand!!!!!
Even if my BM’s are in photos with the mothers, is it really gonna matter that much? I keep telling them to get whatever they like, no matter the color or style and that I actually prefer they NOT coordinate, but its not clicking.
So, are you confused yet? I am!!!! If any of you have pics of mothers and BM’s share them. I intend on convincing them that their personal style is more important than coordination!!!!!
