- Wedding: September 2009
Well, I am going to be in my first post-wedding wedding (that is, i will be a bridesmaid for the first time after having my own wedding). Here is the issue. The wedding is next December in the midwest. The bride is intent on us taking outdoor pics (at least for some of the pics). She has even ordered matching coats for all of the bridesmaids for the pics. I think it will be super cute.
here is my concern, we are wearing short dresses. It is going to late december, outdoors in the midwest and we will be in cocktail length dresses! Granted, we will have coats on, but I feel like it will look really silly for our legs to be exposed in these pics. Don’t get me wrong, I think it might be super cute, but she will be in a wedding dress, the guys will be in tuxes, all with coats, and, oh, here are my half naked bridesmaids who were freezing to death.
I just think it is going to look weird- wearing coats with short skirts… not to mention that we will be freezing. I have tried to suggest to the bride that we get long dresses, but she is totally on the “nope, this is my vision” bandwagon (which I DO understand).
Should I just let it go and 1) be miserable and freezing and 2) have odd looking pics or should I try to get her to think about other options.
