I’d at least see the dress first to see why she would have thought it would be an ok stand in. But honestly, I’d ask her to wear the JCrew dress because, let’s face it, different fabrics have different sheens and there are about 5,684 different shades of navy blue out there.

Good luck!

Is this issue worth the possiblity of losing your sister?

^ her sister should have thought of that before she even returned the original dress. She obviously knew what she was doing when she did it.

The OP has every right to react to it. OP is not in the wrong here, her sister is.

@bunnyfoofoo:  I agree the sisters actions are lame. But from the perspective of someone who has very little family left I really question how much drama to make over this.

Heres what you do.. TELL HER NO!! You gave her plenty of options.. Thats that.. Its your wedding. I know that sounds selfish but oh well.

Say no. The bridesmaids dress (according to Emily Post) isn’t a fashion statement, it is a uniform. She needs to wear the uniform. You gave her a lot of flexibility.
