@MrsGatito:  definitely be honest. If you were in my wedding, I wouldn’t want you feeling uncomfortable. Plus, it will be evident in pictures!

If everyone is wearing a different dress, explain to her that x is not good about the dress because of your body type and maybe a dress with y would be better (eg: the strapless part of the dress isn’t good bc I need straps for more support, or something like that). If you tell her what the problem is, be sure to let her know what the solution is as well. If she’s asking your opinion, I’m sure she wants it.

It really depends. What stage are we in? Is this like we bought it months ago and now I’m not sure? If so I wouldn’t say anything so you wouldn’t stress out the bride. If you’re still in the figuring it out and buying stage I think you’re fine to say you don’t love it.

@MrsGatito:   If she asks, tell her.  I’d suggest finding something you like about the dress to go along with what you don’t like – that may help your bride to choose a dress you DO like.  🙂

I would.  I’d probably open by letting her know that if she really wants you to wear it you will, but… and then explain your concerns about the dress.  Especially if the BMs are wearing mismatching dresses, why would you not be able to have a different mismatched dress?

@MrsGatito:  It depends, has it been bought? Also whose paying for it? When you say your not sure if it’s the right dress for you is it unflattering (as in makes you look unnattractive) or is it just not the kind that would be super flattering? For example with me (im an hour glass) an A line looks great, a shift dress looks ok and an empire line looks awful on me.

@MrsGatito:  say something. 

As a past bride, I would want my BMs to come to me and tell me that they are not comfortable. Bc like pP said, it will show on your face. 

Not every bride is a bridezilla lol
