So you gave them a list of dresses and they bought one that wasn’t even on the list?! Wow I’d be ticked.. I’m pretty sure DB can change the order though, so just have a talk with your BM’s and let them know they chose the wrong one.

I’d be annoyed!! Point out that they’ve bought the wrong one and see if they can be exchanged.

Yea, have the order changed I’m sure its possible esp with DB since most Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are not made to order they come from a warehouse.

But, I don’t think your photography worries are founded with the shiny fabric. Any good photographer will know how to deal with such issues…sunshine is a common issue faced by wedding photographers…as is shiny fabric. I asked our photographer about this and she just laughed and told me not to worry, so I don’t think you need to (should hell freeze over and DB cannot change the dress order that is)


Hope it works out!

What about your other BMs?! Be sure to check in with your other BMs to be sure they’re on the right track, too. Geez, I’m sorry for this. Those gals need to exchange, that’s all there is to it.

I would just tell them “I’m sorry, there must have been some miscommunication- the dresses that I wanted you to choose from are all chiffon material (or whatever) and the dress you picked is satin. That wasn’t an option- I’ve already called David’s Bridal and explained the situation and they will allow for an exchange. Please let me know which dress you would like from choices a,b,c,or d.” Say it with a smile and if they pitch a hissy, then I would rethink their participation in the wedding… I know that may sound a but harsh, but honestly, at this point in planning I have no room or inclination to deal with people who aren’t helpful. You gave them choices and they deliberately picked something outside of that (unless the genuinely were confused- i.e. thought they could pick ANY canary yellow dress) I hope it all works out!

I wouldn’t worry about the blinding glare (unless it’s really shiny- I googled the fabric and DB’s- it looks okay)- but i’d be irritated the girls ordered off the list. I’d ask them to change the dress.
