I was going to suggest that you pick one for her, but you already said that won’t work.

What about picking 3 or 4 different dresses out for her to try on and then letting the mom know she should pick from those 3-4 dresses? Reiterate that the color and fabric are chosen, she just needs to select from the 3-4 options you present to her.

Some people can’t make a decision if given too many options. I dunno if that will work or not, but I understand the frustration!

@HeyKaraoke:  Why don’t you talk to your Jr. Bridesmaid directly? Could you take her to the store as a day for the two of you and then when you drop her off at home let her mom know that dress X was picked ?

Then its not you picking it so she can complain, its her daughter picking it, you just taking her.

I know you don’t want to have to do any of that, but probably better for both you and the girl to do it that way than go through her Mom constantly. I mean if I was a Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man (I’m assuming somewhere between 11 and 16) I would want to pick my dress and not have my mom pick it out for me anyways….

How frustrating. I probably would have said no to this kid being in the Wedding Party altogether–FBIL tried to force his kid into ours as our ring bearer, and I said absolutely no kids thanksbye.

I feel your frustration, though. I’ve been after my bridesmaids to choose dresses for a while now. I gave them the same guidelines you did–here’s the color, here’s the fabric, here’s the website page that lists all of your options, pick one. It took lots of wheedling and “Hey, we are ordering THIS WEEK!!!!” to get them to narrow it down, although our ordering never happened (my fault).
