umm even if it’s a casual wedding she can find a nice little dress to wear. Are you going with her?

Is she the type that just Doesn’t Wear Dresses?  Could she compromise with you on maybe a jumper type thing that’s shorts, but looks more like a dress? Or maybe a maxi dress that’s a little more modest?

I think you need to be upfront with her. “Jane, look, I know you really want to wear this shorts combo, but honestly, this is my wedding. I don’t want to make you super uncomfortable, but I’m also not asking you to wear a ballgown- just a sundress.”  And when you go shopping, veto anything you truly don’t like.  I’m usually one to side with bridesmaids on these “the bride wants me to wear WHAT?” issues, but your request that she wear something that’s not shorts when she’s IN your wedding is really not over the top at all.

Honestly if she wears dresses, she needs to suck it up and put one on. You aren’t being unreasonable. I would call her and tell her you prefer a dress. She part of the wedding party and is going to be in the major pictures she should look nice.

Whether others can wear white is up to the bride. There is no hard and fast rule. Some brides put the entire wedding part in white, but you are the bride. You get to choose!
