My dd, the possible bridesmaid, is 20 years old and is in college. Maybe I shouldn't have said that my sister w/b pissed off if we declined my dd participating.
This story is sad. I see a wedding as an opportunity to surround oneself with the family and friends who mean the most; not just people who can afford to make the wedding appear elegant or glamorous.
A considerate bride will take into account affordability when choosing the bridesmaids dresses. I'd be concerned that an inconsiderate bride might become a Bridezilla which would not be fun for the bridesmaids.
I am getting married in March & I am not even spending that much on my wedding dress!!

Well, I got a reply back from my sister, who wasn't clear in her initial email about the dress cost.
