I understand where you are coming from! My BM’s all want different things short/long, one Bridesmaid or Best Man even told me she couldn’t wear the color I picked. I finally just stuck with the color told them the fabric I wanted and let them to pick their own dresses. Bottom line it is your day and your vision stay true to that and they will come around!

What’s the difference between the dress the Maid/Matron of Honor wants and what you want? The focus of the wedding is you and your tastes, but it’s always mannerily to consider other people’s body issues when choosing a dress.

It’s your wedding, so it’s your choice. It’s really nice that you took their thoughts into consideration, but they need to stop beating around the bush. Do they like the dress or not? If they don’t like it, speak up…otherwise, you’re choosing it.

If they all like the same dress, I’d consider it a blessing!

I took 4 of my 9 bridesmaids dress shopping a few weeks ago and gave the same parameters–same color, fabric and designer. 3 of them loved one dress, one liked another, and we picked another dress for the sake of selection. Once I presented the selections to the girls, it turned out that no one wanted one of them, which was fine with me! Everyone found something they’d be fine paying for and happy wearing, so no squabbles and no complaining. 🙂
