- Wedding: May 2012
One of my bridesmaids is coming into town. I am missing most of the time that she is in town, due to some miscommunication. Although we didn’t fight, she was definitely hurt that our schedules aren’t matching up.
We’re going to hang out with each other and she is really excited to go dress shopping. I am really excited to go look for bridesmaid dresses, but I know that she’ll suggest me trying on bridal dresses. I don’t want to try on any yet for a few reasons:
1) My mom wants to go with me when I try on dresses. It’s something that’s really important to her. She has been so supportive and this is so important to her, I don’t want to try dresses on for the first time without her being there. What if I happen to find “the one”? I also don’t want to lie to her on this situation.
2) I’m not comfortable trying on dresses yet because I am carrying some extra weight and it won’t be a good time of the month to try on dresses.
I don’t want this to turn into a huge thing with my friend. Does anybody have any advice for side-stepping this situation? I know my friend really wants to be there for some of the experiences, and deep down, I think she’s sad that she won’t be able to be here for a lot of these things. I also know that she did all of her planning in another state, and I don’t think her mom was able to be there all that much. I don’t want to cause any awkwardness. I do want to look for bridesmaid dresses, though.
Like I said, any advice is appreciated :-). I am also a person who absolutely hates the thought of conflict.
