I'm looking for some help with what to do with my MOH who is also my sister. We live across the country from each other so I only get to see her physically a few times a year, which is why I didn't notice anything. However, my mom (who lives near sister) has been expressing some concern over my sister seemly to have gained weight over the last year, not because of her size... but because of the dresses. I bought the dresses for my bridesmaids and gave my sister the dress in May, it was custom made and fit perfectly when she tried it on in late May. However, my mom was so concerned about the dress fitting that she has been asking her to bring it over and try it on for her for a couple of weeks now. Mom finally made my sister bring the dress over to her place this last weekend and try it on (under the disguise that she had not seen it on her yet, not wanting to bring up the weight thing) and the zipper on the dress doesn't even come close to closing any more. My wedding is in less than 3 weeks.
I have 2 problems:
1. I don't know what to do about the dress!!! Do I try and find a black one and cut up the original dress to make a sash of the same color as the other bridesmaids? Do i just get a completely different dress and say hers is different because she is MOH? The dress can't be taken out as much as she needs it, but maybe we could put a random strip down the side to extend it??
2. How do I talk to her about this? It has been 3 months since I gave her the dress... not really that long to try and stay a similar size. I don't care about her actually being bigger, I have bridesmaids of all sizes.. and i'm not exactly a skinny minnie. I am just upset that now the dresses are all messed up and wont be the same.
And NO she isn't prego... I thought that at first too.
