@hisbridekimberly:  not trying to be mean- NO OFFENSE TO PLUS SIZE LADIES- do you think she was trying to find something flattering and thought this looked good since it wasn’t super form fitting?

@hisbridekimberly: Yikes! I’ve seen that dress in person and even on stick figures it’s a tough one to pull off. It comes in a nice blush color too but this hideous brown I cannot get over.

@secretbee33 nailed it with the meatball reference. I agree with most of the PPs. Be upfront and honest but keep your cool so she has nothing to fire back with. That’s a pretty balls to the wall dress for a Maid/Matron of Honor to purchase without running it by the bride. Do you two normally get along? Maybe it’s a passive-aggressive move…

ETA: Just saw that she ordered it in black. I’m sure that will look a lot better than the brown but I fear she will still have a fair amount of attention on her in not a good way…

@hisbridekimberly:  HOLY MOSES. That is no bueno! Are you sure its not a joke? I really hope its a joke. How can she think that looks good on her?

Unless you planned on paying for her dress deal with what she picked. You can take less formal photos with her. You can have your witnesses walk down the aisle and stand far away from you or promptly sit.

That dress is terrible. She would not be walking down the aisle with that sucker on in my wedding.  Good luck getting her to change it!

Oh my… Maybe you can call her instead of relying on e-mail?

OMG! ! After seeing that picture. ..you HAVE TO make her take it back. It’s so incredibly rude to just up & go buy yourself a dress for someone else’s wedding like she did, when youre the made of honor. I never in a million years would’ve done that. Why did she do that? That’s really strange to me. You clearly stated the word “we”…I can’t get over the fact that she thought it was fine to go pick out her own made of honor dress…and that she chose THAT dress for herself.

@hisbridekimberly:  I wouldn’t email her. I would call, or to be quite honest, show up at her doorstep. Time is of the essence here, and the faster you speak to her and come to a resolution, the easier it is for David’s Bridal to cancel the order before it’s processed, which would prevent any penalties.

 

She definitely should have consulted you, before ordering anything.

 

It is unflattering on any female body type over the age of 12.

@hisbridekimberly:  not only is that dress terrible on her I’d be nervous about what people at your wedding would think. If I was a guest I would never think your Maid/Matron of Honor picked that out herself, and I’d probably think it was horrible that the bride(you) picked it out for her to wear.

@hisbridekimberly:  is black the other color in your wedding? You can always say the colors won’t work. Or even that you really wanted a floor length dress? I agree with the PP’s, this is NOT a flattering dress for her, i don’t even think it’s a pretty dress to begin with to be honest. I can’t even imagine…

@ FutureDrAtkins : you crack me up!!!!

 

totally agree with pp. I dont think I would mention that it is possible to find a more flattering dress for her. Perhaps you could approach as you would really like her to look like part of the family in photos and so that would mean something that goes with your dress style or your grooms suit? something to smooth the sister in law relationship bit….

 

best of luck!
