I need some help ladies (and possible gents),
I recently became engaged on August 5th 2013. Already in my mind I had 5 bridesmaids picked out - my two sisters, my childhood best friend, my high school best friend, and the best friend I spend most of my time with in recent years.
My wedding is not for another 2 years, so there is no rush for plans (although I may be half done already - including hiring my photographer!) I decided it would be nice to round the girls up, and have a little chat over tea. I'm not going to bother them for another year, so I just wanted to give them a little sense of my wedding style. First thing I noticed, my sisters are angels. Lauren, the friend that I spend most of my time with now, is very in tune with what I want. One of my sisters, Tess, is only 16, so drinking for a bacherolette downtown is out of the question for me. Kara and Casey, my long time best friends are already giving me problems with demands. I should them a plain, long dress I liked. Green, because that's the theme colour. Told them they could have it in any shade of green they think they look good in.. and they are giving me grief about the sweetheart neckline. They also want to make sure they can do their own make-up, and that their hair can be left down, because up "makes their shoulders look big".
What do I do? Obviously I don't care about their hair, but they are making demands to picking their own dress. Do I leave it until next year, or do I nip it in the bud now?
