I have five bridesmaids and they all agreed on two dresses, they all loved them and so did I. We had two girls in one dress and three in another.
Then one bridesmaid got pregnant.
Her dress was one of the two dresses that matched, and that style did not have room for a baby bump even with alterations. I took her in with the other girl who had a matching dress to get new dresses. At this point I said I didnt care if it was the same fabric as the other three girls, just same color and length (marine, short).
They tried on EVERY SINGLE DRESS that was the right length, in the whole store.
None of the short dresses fit my pregnant bridesmaid because she has a small bust and will be 7 months along by the wedding. We tried a long dress just out of curiousity and it worked perfectly on both girls, but it was very formal and elegant and the other three girls were short and casual dresses. I felt it would be okay for all the girls to change to the long formal dress, but they did not want to.
I understand that, and I wanted short dresses from the very beginning. I told my pregnant bridesmaid that we could hem the long dress to match the short dresses, for free since my new grandma in law can do that. She refused on the basis that she didnt want to pay for a long dress and then shorten it.
So I told her she can find a dress, any dress, and as long as it's the right length and color I dont care what style or fabric anymore. So she told me she thought a short dress will look funny on her pregnant belly.
I want her in my wedding but I feel manipulated and frustrated!
