My sister knows how to push my buttons. I’m not sure if she’s jealous or if I’m being a diva, but she’s really making me mad. Due to certain circumstances (I wanted my grandparents to come and it was too expensive for everyone) I changed our venue from a destination wedding to a local wedding. After I changed that I wanted to get a new dress (going from a destination wedding dress to a winter wedding in Chicago, hello!?!). Granted, my first dress is very nice and I could probably pull it off, but now a lace dress goes much better with the venue.
With all that said, she’s saying how I need to go to therapy and can’t believe that I’m going to buy a new dress, etc. etc. Am I being a diva or is she being a BEEE??

She is being a BEE!!! Your wanting a new dress is really none of her business. It is YOUR wedding so do what YOU want.

I think its a nice trade off. You are switching to accomodate your family, but therefore you probably need a new dress.
Don’t let her bug you.

I agree…she’s totally just trying to bug you. I say go out and get yourself a new dress! And if you aren’t wearing your old dress…consider selling it!

My mom gave me this advise about one of my BMs: Maybe it’s best if you didn’t tell her everything. Sounds like your sister has some unwelcome opinions and you might save yourself some stress and heartache if you kept as many details as possible to yourself. i know that’s hard. My Bridesmaid or Best Man that has too many opinions is my best friend of 20 years and it’s hard to hold back anything, but since my mom gave me that advise my stree level has gone down. Good luck, and get that dress!
PS: Any thoughts on what you are going to wear over your lace dress to keep warm? I could use some ideas

If wanting a new dress is cause for therapy, then there’d be a heck of a lot of brides in therapy. lol Your sister needs to back off. So many brides change their minds on the dresses…my sister was one of them, and I can guarantee she doesn’t need therapy. I think your right when you say she sounds jealous.

She’s being a BEEah about it, but I can see how buying a new dress seems frivolous to her. That being said, she should keep her mouth shut, and/or you should just tell her to hush or you’ll put her in some ugly monstrosity and laugh your way down the aisle =]

Okay good! Thanks for all your responses. I thought maybe I was going crazy!
Magilnyc- I’m planning on doing a vintage or faux fur stole to keep me warm for our outside pictures or I have seen a few picture where brides wear cute cardigans in their wedding colors (I would probably do purple). I’m sure it will be painfully cold, but I don’t care 🙂
