I am just painting up a scenario here, just to be prepared if a situation like this would occur.
I was wondering how you would do if you had chosen a specific dress, that you loved, that would go well with your wedding dress and with the theme of the wedding etc, and you want your bridesmaids to wear it, and one of them, or a few, or neither of them, likes it?
This is a scenario where you are VERY, VEEERY fond of the dress, and can’t imagine anything else, since this is just so perfect for the look and the “feeling” you are looking to accieve for your wedding! What would you do? Let them change the dress, or order it for them anyway?
I am not talking about putting a super slim fit dress on a girl that’s uncomfortable with her figure, I’m more thinking if the dress wasn’t their personal style, and nothing they wouldn’t chose for themselves, and maybe something one might feel “silly” in, since the dress “stands out”.
I have a specific dress in mind, that I would love for my bridesmaids to wear, and some people may think that it is a bit “too much going on”, it’s a short dress with very much “fluff” in the bottom, lots of tulle, and I just love it! And my girls would look super pretty in it, but I don’t think that’s what they would chose for themselves. I do hope that they will love it as much as I do, if I chose to get that one for them. But what if they don’t? I would feel awful if I showed it to them and they said they would like something else, and I ordered it anyway…. But I can’t picture my wedding without these sweet, lovely dresses! Or something very similar, but that wouldn’t help if they wouldn’t like the style anyway. This is not a problem yet, and I don’t know if it will be either, hopefully not! I just know that in specific one of these girls can be very picky with what she’s wearing, and I know that the styles she would prefer is not at all what I have in mind for my wedding.
Has any one of you had a similar “situation” ?
Edit: I would ofc pay for whatever dress they would wear.
