Awwww, I’ve always loved that dress! It didn’t really fit with the look I was going for, but that was one of my top choices if it had. I think she’s being insensitive, her boyfriend is clueless and you shouldn’t worry about it. She agreed to buy it and she’s trying to do it for you, so just be happy–she’ll be happy day of and want to celebrate with you, I’m sure!

i think those are going to be very cute!  I wouldn’t worry.  She’ll like it better when its been altered and fits correctly.  That can make such a huge difference in how it looks and how she’ll feel in it.

I think they are really pretty! I love brown and blue together. I am sure it will look better once it is fitted to her.

The fact that you gave them a “veto” and they were happy means they should not make such comments to you. Sometimes I think bridesmaids forget that they are really there to make your life a little easier and not overcomplicate it.

Wow…you’re a very nice bride to give them full veto rights before you ordered the dreesses. It was definitely her own fault for not saying something at that time. I think it’s very hurtful for someone to tell you that they hate something about your wedding before it’s even happened, and equally as hurtful to say they hate something after it’s happened. A newsflash to your Maid/Matron of Honor is that this is your wedding, and it doesn’t matter what she thinks about the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. You love them!

Now that I said all of that, I think the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are adorable! They look really comfortable. I’d love to know what her problem with them is. I think you did a fabulous job on the dresses, and you shouldn’t worry so much about what anyone else thinks!

I think it’s an adorable dress. The colors sound go together also. She should get over it and act supportive. Her Boyfriend or Best Friend shouldn’t have said anything like that, it’s hurtful. Once she gets it fitted I’m sure it will be better on her, and if not it’s your wedding not hers so she can suck it up and be a Maid/Matron of Honor for a day.

Those are stunning dresses. In the world of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, there is little to complain about, especially if your BMs and Maid/Matron of Honor had a say in the dresses. Hopefully once it fits right she’ll feel better about it. Fit can make a huge difference.

It’s kind of rude to make those comments this late in the game. Even if you don’t have a say in the dress, once you’ve agreed to be the Maid/Matron of Honor or a Bridesmaid or Best Man, you suck it up and wear the dress the bride chooses.

Don’t worry, even if she doesn’t like it, I think it’s a stunning dress. Your girls will look beautiful.

I think those dresses are very cute, I would love to wear one like that. I think its rude of her bf to say something like that to you and if she truly doesnt like them then it is her fault for not saying that she wasnt a fan when you guys picked them out. I think you made a great choice and I wouldnt worry.

It’s a pretty dress!! I’m not a huge fan of the flower though. Anyway, I don’t think it’s right for your friend and her bf to say something so mean NOW it’s not like you told them “This is the dress you’re wearing, like it or not.” Ugh people can be so rude!

I’ve seen some hideous Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses but I don’t think this one is bad at all.  I don’t love the white flower though, sorry!
