dress dilemma (Rant... sorry)

So I was talking to a friend of mine (who is also engaged) about the details of our weddings and such, and we were talking about our dresses... And I told her how I am a super dramatic girl on a low budget, so I am surprising my FI at the reception with a dress change and me singing him a song. She FLIPPED out on me for being impractical, and that if I had just bought one dress I would probably be able to afford more for my wedding... I wouldn't have bought 2, other than both were on sale and STILL under my budget for a dress... I don't know... I just felt like that was really attacking... It just bugged me.

  • I can see how that would bother you, I would be bothered too.  Don't let her get to you.  If it's all within your budget, that is all that matters.

    First of all it is your wedding, second of all it is your money, third of all she has no right to judge how you spend your money.

    I'd be irritated too.

  • I dont want to say the big "J" word but i think that could have played a factor in this. 
  • Yeah, I'm thinking she's jealous. Just try not to let it bother you. If it's within your budget, and it's something you really want to do, then do it and have fun with it.

    THIS!! and definately some Bride envy going on here...
  • I think she was definitely out of line! Some people just can't help but be judgemental- and then don't have the good sense to know when to keep their mouth shut! It would have bothered me too.

  • Moments like these are why other brides say to limit what you share with other people.The more you put out there, the more likely you are to be judged about any aspect of your wedding. Not saying your friend was right to say those things, she definitely should've kept her mouth shut or changed the subject. As long as these things are within your budget and you're not going into debt, it's nobody's business.

    Just what she said. Plus if you're anything like me you are likely to take things more to heart since it really matters to you what you have chosen to do.
