So my best friend is my maid of honor. I’ve bounced a few planning ideas off of her, but am obviously spearheading pretty much everything myself. We’ve talked a little bit about BM attire, I mentioned probably just selecting a site that offers multiple styles in one color, for continuity’s sake, and then asking the three of them to just pick their favorite style. Simple. Wedding color is emerald green, so obviously thinking green dresses. I sent her a link to a site I was looking at, she sends back a screenshot of a black dress and says, “if this were black instead of green, I’d be able to wear it all the time”
She has since mentioned/“hinted”/pleaded for black no less than five times in the past month since I started planning. “I get sweaty and it could show through if it’s not black” “I always wear all black” and it’s driving me crazy! She’s even suggested that she wear black but the other two wear green... gtfoooooo!
Part of me says, who cares, if you’re happier in black, black it is. The other part of me says I really prefer green because I’m not having a dang black and white wedding. And it’s irritating how willingly vocal she is about changing what I’m envisioning for MY wedding because it’s what SHE wants. That’s weird right? A groomsman wouldn’t say “ya know, I know you wanted us to wear black suits, but I really prefer blue, so can we wear that instead?”
I don’t know.. any advice or anecdotes are welcome. Maybe I just need to vent because now it sounds silly. “I appreciate your input and respect your concerns, but I really want the dresses to be green” is all I have to say. But why does that seem so hard to do?!
