So I'm the MOH in a wedding coming up this spring. This bride has a very different style than I do and picked a BM dress that I'm honestly not that fond of. It's not my style at all. Her MIL (also my MIL, the bride is marrying my H's brother) is making the dresses. So I won't have to spend all that much, but probably some on tailoring. I understand that buying a BM dress is my responsibility, and do not begrudge at all spending money on it.
My question is, the bride asked my opinion on the dress. She asked what I thought of it. So if someone asked your opinion on a BM dress, would you give them your honest opinion? (It's not my style, but it's your wedding, I'll wear whatever you want) Or would you just say it's nice. (I think it's pretty.) (Both of which are true, btw.)
Also, would your answer change when you know the bride has already purchased the pattern and fabric for the dress?
Also, I'll add another detail. The bride wears extremely modest clothes (I mean, I've never seen her in anything more than an inch lower cut than a crew-neck t-shirt). One of the other BMs does as well. I consider myself a modest dresser as well, but not to that extent. This dress will be a couple inches below the knee, has 3/4 sleeves and has a very high neckline.
