Exactly! It’s your wedding and if you love them, stick with them! Remind your sister she’ll get her chance to pick out bridesmaid dresses when she gets married. I bet she’ll get over it!

Just tell her she can get the dress altered to fit her, and that’s the dress you’ve selected.  If she wants to be in the wedding, that is the dress that she’s going to wear.

Also tell her that the conversation is now over.

If you want to be nice, you can promise her that when it’s her turn to pick bridesmaid dresses, you won’t say a word and will put on whatever she wants.

Then tell her what wedding decisions/tasks are still open for discussion, and you welcome her input on those- to a degree, of course ; )

@Kathe86:  

I do think it was pretty rude of you to leave her out of the shopping experience.  If I were a bridesmaid and found out the other bridesmaids got to try on a dress and the bride purchased them without my knowledge I’d be choked.  She has to wear it, you should have at least asked her opinion on it, and also asked her her size!

I’m not surprised she’s hurt. She’s the only one who didn’t get to go shopping, and she’s your sister. Do what you want but try not to be mean and maybe apologize for not having her there

I think she needs to stop being a drama queen to be honest. she is being a little selfish if all she is worried about is how she looks on the day and not caring how her attitude is making you feel when its your wedding. Iv been a bridesmaid twice and i would wear ANYTHING that the bride had chosen even if it wasnt flattering. Its not my choice and its an honor to be asked!

 

I think she is possibly hurt that the dress was picked without her but in the end of the day it still was going to be your choice weather she was there or not. she probably would have loved the dress if she was there to pick it aswell. i think she is just being a littel spitefull To be honest. hopefully she omes to here senses are realises its not all about her in time before he attitude ruins anything.

 

Good luck!

@Kathe86:  then she really needs to change her attitude. My sister is my MOH and if she acting anything like that i would have told her to buzz off. do you have a good relationship normally? its a bit weird that your sister is acting like this, maybe there is something underlying all this? is she jealouse that you are getting married and therefore being difficult?

 

i think this a a real shame that she is acting like this… she is your sister and im suprised she is not more supportive.. id tell her exactly what you have written here and ask why she is behaving like this? hopfully she will come to her senses..
