Am I being unreasonable about shoes?

Re: Am I being unreasonable about shoes?

  • Me get a grip? Brides go to this board for advice about what they should or should not be stressed over during this time in their lives, and to vent, not judgement and yelling about how they should get a grip. Im sorry I've offended and ticked off people on this board about micromanaging and shoes. At the particular moment of posting, shoes had stressed me out. In hindsight, it shouldn't have. People don't know everything all at once about wedding planning, but we can certainly learn. All some of us need are kind words of wisdom, not a slap in the face, which is unasked and uncalled for. And it looks like these message boards are ruled by the same four or five very opinionated women. So much for support. 
  • This reminds me of a wedding I was in last year. It was early September, so it was warm weather and the ceremony would be taking place outside with no shade. There were seven bridesmaids, too many opinions. All of the other BMs were short and stating that they were concerned about the price for alterations, the dress wasn't cheap. I suggested shorter dresses. It would remedy the alteration situation and we wouldn't melt so much during the hour outside ceremony. Bride snapped her head at me and said "Well, then we need matching shoes!". Yikes.
    I honestly think she picked us because of how we looked, in similarity to each other. she wanted the long line of cloned BM. I'm not assuming anyone here is doing that, though I don't doubt that idea can cross some brides' mind. 
    I agree with other PP, I doubt you are the only BM that is not thrilled with "light grey flats".

    I can understand why the Rockettes all need to be within 1-2" of each other.

    But not bridesmaids, lol!  Oh, goodness.
