Bride is furious after her bridesmaid chooses an ‘ugly’ dress
- A bride is furious about her bridesmaid’s choice of clothes for her day
- The bride told her bridesmaids they could choose any dress ‘of the right color’
- But soon regretted her loose guidelines after seeing her friend’s ‘ugly’ dress
A bride who told her bridesmaids to “choose what they feel comfortable in” regrets her decision after one of her friends chose an “ugly dress” for her wedding.
The bride-to-be is now furious with her bridesmaid for choosing such an ugly dress, but is unsure if she should say anything.
She initially told her bridesmaids that they could choose anything they wanted to wear as long as it matched the color scheme, but she soon realized she should have been clearer.
A bride who told her bridesmaids to ‘choose what they feel comfortable with’ deeply regrets her decision after one of her friends chose an ugly dress for her wedding
“I want my bridesmaids to be comfortable, happy and not stressed about money,” she said.
But she now regrets that decision.
“I hate one of my bridesmaid’s dresses, I feel so bad but it’s so ugly,” she wrote on Facebook.
But people were quick to point out that she didn’t give her friends much to go on.
“You’ve made your bed, now lie in it,” said one woman, adding that an ugly dress might be in favor of the bride, because it will make her look even better.
Some labeled the bride “dishonest.”
“I don’t think it’s fair for her to tell the bridesmaid she needs a new or different dress just because she doesn’t like it when, her preference for the style was never part of the deal to begin with.” If that had been the case, she should have offered a few options,” one woman explained.
Others questioned the bride’s perception of “ugly.”
“How bad can it be, we are in 2021,” said one woman.
While another asked her to visualize the outfit with formal hair and accessories.
But some were sympathetic and encouraged her to talk to her friend about it.
“Tell her you don’t like it and give her an idea of what you’d rather have. She may just need some guidance. I’m sure she can return or exchange the dress she has quite easily,” one woman said.
Others who had been in similar situations also shared their stories.
The bride said she chose the color of the dresses but gave her bridesmaids the choice of style
“I absolutely hated how one of my bridesmaid dresses looked on the hanger, but the day she put it on, she was absolutely radiant. She was so comfortable and happy that dress looked beautiful. You can say you hate it now, but you might experience the same thing,” said one woman.
One mother suggested that the conversation depends on the bride’s confidence in the relationship.
She explained that the bride should only bring it up if she’s sure the bridesmaid won’t take it to heart and that the criticism won’t hurt the friendship.
