Is she married? Ill bet when she gets married she gets a short dress. When I went to try on dresses and since I was like umm 2 I always said “ballroom gown, cinderella, tulle, tulle, and more tulle!” Well yea I went to try on dresses and i hated every ballroom gown I tried on and man those damn things are freaking heavy. But I love all the bees who get them and I still love the ballroom gowns. I ended up with a form fitting lace Balear by Pronovias. Go figure!

Oh no! I hate moments like that—AWKWARD! Try to understand how shitty that scenario was for her though….total foot in the mouth. I wouldn’t take it personally at all. Everyone has different opinions and there was no way of her knowing what kind of dress you had. She’s probably saying to someone else right now “can you believe what I said??? What an idiot!”

Don’t think too much on it or let it impact on your relationship with your co-worker.

She was probably just letting herself get carried away voicing what she does/doesn’t like. I would bet she had no idea you had a short wedding dress. She definitely could have phrased her opinion much more diplomatically, but I don’t know that many people who are that on guard with their etiquette all the time. I know I’m guilty of saying “I hate that”, “That looks crap” without thinking!

I’m sure she didn’t mean to offend, and that you looked lovely in your dress 🙂

@Pixie79: I believe Mrs. Ruby was talking about her co-worker’s manners, not opinion.

@Pixie79:  Yep have to agree with JasminesBridal. Like the OP said if she had just left it as she preferred long dresses that would have been a nicer way to word it (and get the same meaning across).

OP sounds like your coworker spouted something out without thinking first. I do this every once in awhile and feel like a complete idiot. I don’t think I’m usually that blatant though… Hopefully your insight will help her if she ever has to deal with a client wanting a short dress.
