My MOH (my sister) has been having a fit over bridesmaid dresses. My three bridesmaids all have different body types, so I suggested that they all get different dresses as long as they’re in similar colours. I want my bridesmaids to be happy with, comfortable in, and look great in their dresses, but I also want a cohesive look/feel to my wedding. My sister has stated over and over again that she will likely never wear any dress she buys for my wedding over again, and as a result she wants to spend as little money as possible on it (even though I’ve seen her bank statements and know that money is not an issue).
In addition, MOH is moving overseas a couple of months before the wedding and then flying back for both mine, and a friend’s wedding. The friend’s wedding it in Iowa at the end of September; my wedding is in Vegas two weeks later. MOH is planning on attending both (fine), but she briefly mentioned that she will probably wear whatever dress she buys as her bridesmaid dress to her friend’s wedding, which kind of rubs me the wrong way. Am I being unreasonable?
She also has yet to help out substantially with anything wedding related, in spite of asking specifically what she could help with, and me assigning her a relatively minor task (which I am now doing myself because she is away for 3 weeks).

Just buy her a $50 dress and tell her to STFU…. maybe in slightly nicer words. She’s being a baby.

Well… I don’t think she is being a great made of honor, but I wouldn’t make a big deal about it. Not because I don’t think what she is doing is OK (not OK at all) but to avoid any problems between you two.
Just her pick whatever dress she likes on your terms (one you approve for your bridal party) and let her do whatever she wants with it…
Don’t let her being a pain in the butt ruin your amazing day :D!

You can choose to engage in her problem making, or choose not to-your choice.
Let her pick the dress she wants to wear as long as she agrees to your terms-color, fabric etc.
If she wears the dress in Iowa will it really make any long term difference to your wedding?? Your sister is clearly not prepared to “put out’ for your wedding. I would simply carry on without her as much as you can.

@gingerkid: tell her to buy and return and stop being a baby lol

If all you did was set a color, then what is she being a cry-baby for? She can spend 5 bucks or 500. You didn’t put a minimum on it. Why doesn’t she visit a thrift store if she doesn’t want to spend a bunch?

@megz06: My sister also has awful (and I mean AWFUL) fashion sense.
