SIL Input on Flower Girl Dresses
First off - sorry the the length. Venting a little here.
So I'm in a little bit of a situation with my sister-in-law/brother. Their two wonderful daughters are the flower girls in my upcoming wedding. I love my nieces, but they can be divas sometimes. My mom found some adorable flower girl dresses. I LOVED them. She sent myself, my SIL and my sister pictures and we all agreed to purchase. My mom bought them and brought them to my brother's when she was there to visit on the youngest's birthday. The girls tried them on after a long day of birthday parties. They were not happy. They said the dresses were "scratchy." So we nixed them. I wouldn't want to be uncomfortable on the wedding day either, so I was fine with it.
Well now we've been on the hunt for new dresses. I know we have plenty of time, but the color I want is really a spring color so it's a good time to buy, as there will be lots of options. The one thing I don't want are white flower girl dresses. I've explained this to all involved.
Regardless of my requests, my SIL keeps pushing for white dresses. She has sent me pictures or links on three separate occasions of white dresses. I've explained to her that's not the look I'm going for. Now, today, my BROTHER emailed me white flower girl dresses that have a colored sash (an option I've already vetoed). He is not the kind of guy who is browsing David's Bridal while at work, and I have no doubt those were dresses she found and told him to email me.
I love my SIL. She's wonderful, but she can be a little pushy. I found 4 different options of dresses in my color scheme that have been vetoed by her now.
The company that is making our bridesmaid dresses has one dress that would work great and they can dye it the same color as the BM dresses. It is expensive ($150), but I'm kind of fed up. Is it horrible to suggest these dresses? I kind of want to have this over with, rather than debating it for the next 3 months. Thoughts?
