So, my bridesmaids haven't been the easiest. For dresses, I allowed everyone to pick their own dress, long and eggplant were the criteria. Now we are two months away and my bridesmaids just informed me that cant find anything (but they just started looking). Hmmm, and if we are going to order dresses such as Dessy etc. - we need to order them asap in order to ensure we getting them in time. the Sister In Law picked up her dress four days ago, and after seeing it, I decided to pick a dress for everyone. The dress she picked was backless sheer netting with all this sequins on it and definitely more Pageant like than Bridesmaid like. I guess I should have been more clear. The reason I was letting everyone pick their own dress was because I want all my girls to feel good on my wedding day and realize there may be financial limits, but everyone waited to the last minute to look.
I finally just picked a bridesmaid dress, not one that I love, but one that will pass. One of my girls has a problem with expense for the dress, and well three others don't like the dress I picked. I have been looking and sending them pictures for months now and ALL bridesmaids are strongly opinionated. I have really had it and am tired. It would be much more prefer not have bridesmaids at this point, it will save them the $275 for a dress they will never wear again and it will save me $600 for flowers/gifts. While I love them all, I just hate asking them to spend this money. But, then there is the issue of groomsmen, we have five of them and so this would affect my fiancé
ugh, this wedding planning is hard stuff (who knew) it was so much work, and I plan events for a living!!!
