Yeah, you’re right — it will probably go down easier that way.  I just wish your sisters would be a little more interested in what you want for your own wedding!

Hmm.. I do think you’re being a *bit* of a pushover here.  Shouldn’t it be YOU, the BRIDE, who loves the outfits, not your sisters?  I mean, if they love them, great, their kids can wear them to church or at Easter or whenever children dress up.  I’m kind of mad *for* you.

I checked department stores and couldn’t find any polka dot ties.   I found an etsy seller who makes childrens’ ties.  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26930200&ref=sr_gallery_4&&ga_search_query=necktie&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes%5B%5D=tags&includes%5B%5D=title

I’m not sure if that seller would be willing to rush an order for you, and obviously you’d have the difficulty of choosing a fabric that goes with your wedding, so it’s probably not the ideal option, but it’s AN option.

I also found these:


And a simple pattern if you know someone who would be willing to make one for you:

Quite frankly, suggesting that they might refuse your tie would have been my breaking point.  I do understand your reluctance to raise issues with your sisters over clothes for their children, but they should have immediately backed off and apologized when they realized that you weren’t 100% on board with ther blue shirt  plan.  

You know your sisters better than I do – would it be better if the ties were "delayed" and did not arrive until the day before your wedding, at which point you would excitedly give them to your nephews right before they go down the aisle?  Note: this wouldn’t work if your sisters are the type to argue with a bride over wardrobe choices on your wedding day since the last thing you would need is stress that day over ring bearer clothes.  Does your  mother have any feelings on this issue?

Oh, doctorgirl, I understand your position all too well…  I think "gifting" them the ties the night before the wedding is a good idea.  Do you think your sisters might put up a fuss even then?  Is there something you can do to make the ties more appealing to your nephews so that they’re on your side?  I remember a post (not sure if it was here or somewhere else) about choosing tie pins for ring bearers that are symbols of their specific interests (like a soccer ball or rocket) so they’ll be more excited to wear the ties instead of complain and whine.  I don’t know if this would work for you…

At the very least, you definitely have my support and understanding and sympathy on the sister front.  I know we’ve said this before, but might we be related?  🙂
