Do I let my MIL and SIL 2B choose the bridesmaids dresses?
Ok, I mean I am getting to the point I would rather elope at the moment!!
I ordered the bridesmaids dress that my chief bridesmaid found from BHS. Its mint green lace and its lovely. I have 6 bridesmaids in total and 5 of them love it. 3 of them are mums and all they said was they wanted a dress that they could wear a proper bra under and be able to pick up their children without flashing their pants. My bridesmaids are mostly around the age of 30 except for the SIL 2B who is 24. All the others love this dress and SIL 2B doesnt. She wants something a bit more sexy, more legs/boob/flesh. One of the other BM's who isnt a mum has kindly said she will wear the same dress as SIL 2B so that she isnt the odd one out. Which is good of her as she is 32 and probably doesnt want to dress the same as a 24 year old. Anyway, SIL2B and MIL2B have announced they are going shopping this week for the dress. THEY! I have such a hectic week and plans every night so I cant go, they are going anyway, rather than going with me and indeed the other BM who would be wearing this dress. I want the SIL2B to be comfortable and like the dress she wears but I think that as I am the bride I should have a say at the very least.
So do I say no, you can go shopping with me when I (and other BM) are free, Or do I just think, to hell with it, and let them get on with it? I hardly think wanting a say in what my BM's wear makes me a bridezilla. Mint is a really hard colour to match properly and we are having a vintage theme so I didnt want anything too sparkly or flouncy.
