hmmmm – it’s touchy. I’m dealing with a similar situation. My cousin is a bridesmaid and she’s COVERED in tattoos which looks awful in her spaghetti-strap gown imo. However, there is a reason I chose her as my bridesmaid. She’s family, I love her dearly: ALL of her so I have to accept what I percieve as her “flaws” (to which I put in quotes lightly, these are MY hangups, not hers. 100% MY issue).

One option would be to treat her to a mani/pedi/hairstyle/makeup, etc. as part of your gift to her for being a bridesmaid on the day of your wedding if your budget allows. As far as your events go, engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party, etc, maybe pick out outfits together? You could also do special bridal party shirts with iron-on decals that say “bridesmaid” “maid-of-honor” “bride” “mother of the bride” to persuade her NOT to wear a nascar shirt at the very least. I got plain black tshirts for a few dollars at Michael’s and ironed on the decals myself so it’s not even crazy expensive. Good luck!!
