Irritation

So my friend is getting married and I am a bridesmaid. She wants the bridesmaids to pick out their own dresses but she wants to approve them first. She is doing this so we won't have to spend a large sum of money. I found a beautiful and relatively inexpensive dress at Nord.strom's website. I send her the picture from the website and firmly get shut down. Nice dress but the satin fabric won't look right on everyone. Ok that would have been nice to know while I am searching for the dress considering the fabric swatches she sent us were satin. I honestly feel if you need to approve you need to pick out the dress. You should also pick out the dress b/c all of your bridesmaids live in different areas of the country and pictures are only going to do so much. Is it just me or is this stupid? It would make more sense if the bridesmaid lived in the same area and went shopping together. But since we don't live in the same area she should find dresses that fit everyone or at least fabric that looks good on everyone.

i agree - totally stupid, lol. she could have at least given you all a 'theme' to work with, i.e -- given you a sample dress she likes and had you go from there so you aren't searching blindly.

that is very stupid. how do you say here find a dress but i have to approve it and it needs to fit everyone??? um no. you have to give people way more guidelines for stuff like that. i'm picking out the dresses when i get married b/c i love my people but they have tendencies to get things i don't like or approve of. lol. plus that makes it easier on everyone.

I totally agree and I'll tell her that to, it will save you the trouble of looking and the time.

co-sign. if the bride has to approve (which I can understand), she may as well pick out the dresses. ~shrugs~
