"YOUR special day" makes it sound even more pretentious. People get married every day, whether it be a small affordable wedding or 10-15,000 bucks. Some couple choose not to, because of beliefs or personal reasons and that a piece of paper and precious metals don't necessarily define/ validate a relationship or make it official.
#51- what are you even talking about? OP obviously feels the day is special enough to have a wedding in the first place, have people she cares about be in the wedding party, and even let the bridesmaids choose the dress style. It's clearly special enough to matter to her. I don't get why people like you comment with totally irrelevant points.
You should remind them about how they helped pick out dresses they hate. I say be "bridezilla" in the sense that you're not going to change something just because they don't like it. It's your special day, not theirs.
Tell them to go look at new dresses and you will go with to decide what will match YOUR wedding then tell them it's coming out of their pocket if they want new dresses
It's likely coming out of their own pocket, anyway. Typically, bridesmaids and those in the wedding pay for their own dresses/shoes/accessories, not the bride and groom. They should suck it up, though, and deal with the dresses they already picked out. It's OP's wedding, not theirs, and they can deal with the dresses. It's for a few hours on one day, not their whole lives. It's not like they have to wear the dresses ever again.
The problem is that OP is likely already investing a lot of time and effort into planning the wedding, and asking her to take more time out of her schedule to help plan/approve new dresses just because the bridesmaids changed their minds seems pretty unfair to me. OP already gave them a say, and the day is supposed to be about her and the groom anyway, not anyone else.
Trust me at least your brides maid are complain about the dress and not each other
Y'know, I was a bridesmaid that complained about other bridesmaids to the bride. To be fair, they didn't try to buy their dresses or shoes until a week before the wedding and complained when everything was no longer being sold. They had over six months to buy a $30 dress and a $15 pair of shoes (which was apparently too expensive for them). They didn't help me, the maid of honor, or the bride with anything. They didn't even show up to the rehearsal or the bachelorette party. They showed up to the wedding wearing two different dresses and didn't match the rest of us... It was a mess. I tried to get the bride to drop them but she wouldn't do it. :(
I would honestly be super petty and say, "If you don't like the dresses, don't be in my wedding (-:"
Most of the times the bridesmaids pay for their own dresses, shoes accessories, etc.. Being a bridesmaid can be expensive. so I feel their opinion matters. But it's your day. Tough decision.
If you're paying, they should definitely suck it up If they are, you may have to compromise on just letting them do the same colour and going from there. I personally think it's your day and they should suck it up, but Id probably still end up compromising cause I care too much. Good luck Op!
