    what an a-hole! she should not have waited! good luck with that! If you feel yourself start to get mad, just remember, you are the "chillest bride." :0
    My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

    Um, hello? THANK YOU. Couldn't say it better.
    If they wanted to do it their way, they should have said "no I'd rather just be a guest". Jerks.

      Good call. The place where we got the BM dresses only keeps one size in stock. Since she was preggers, it wouldn't have worked anyway. His sister was also pregnant when we ordered, but she was having her 3rd child and had a better idea of what size she would be.

      However, your BM sounds more considerate than mine. SHe's bitched about the dress from day one. This is the 2nd dress too. The first one she didn't like (I wasn't too fond of it either) so I bought a second one. Now this one is too long. It's like a never ending pain in my ass. Oh well- the day of the wedding I won't even think about it. BUT there will be no pins in the dress.
      Oh my... okay, attitude check on her ... did she forget you are the bride?
      Here's to hoping she doesn't even try!

      OK also to add my story, at least your BM has a dress. My Matron of Honor (my best friend since 7th grade) has known for 3 months that I have a coupon to save her $20 off her dress but it has to be used by like April 9 or something soon. She wanted to lose weight first (and she has done pretty good) before ordering it, I brought it up again about a month ago to remind her and she said she would order it soon. She hasn't even gone in to try it on. I was thinking that this week I would more forcefully bring it up, but before I could I get a call from her telling me her grandpa passed away this weekend. Now of course I don't want to call her and bug her about it, it's probably the last thing she wants to think about right now. I feel like a total loser even being worried about her dress right now with what she is dealing with, but I can't help it. So again, at least your BM has a dress.
      Hopefully that helps :)
      Also like you said, it's most important to share the love you 2 have with everyone and not what they wear.

        BMs can suck when it comes to dresses! You paid for it too? Oh no! It won't matter in the end so let it go if you can...does anyone sew? Maybe someone can give her a quick hem job...or you can always ask her to sit this one out..haha Good luck and don't stress, you've been very calm so far so try to hang on to that cool....but I know it's hard :)

          They are gorgeous! Good Find. Now with regard to the BM, you are not at all being a bridezilla. It is your one f**king request!!!

          Dont let it get you crazy. Your wedding is going to be amazing and I bet if she tries to pin anything she will give up because that will be a pita and probably not work.

          Don't worry Rachel. You are still "chill"!

          I realize I am lucky because my dear fiance has already announced that anyone who upsets me during the pre wedding is no longer invited, and if someone upsets me at the wedding I think he is going to make them sit in some type of homemade jail until the end of the night! He doesnt care if its my mother!

              I am so sorry this is happening to you Rachel. That just stinks!

              WTF is her problem, ugh! I don't get how they think the wedding is about them, it's about YOU!

                This is one of the many reasons why I love Jamy so much! And yet another demonstration of my dirty mind!

                  hem job? bahahaha.

                  Thanks for the rant ladies. All in all, I guess I'm just not going to care- I just can't believe this is even an issue I have to deal with. Who on earth suggests pining a dress hem for a wedding!

                  With that in mind, when you see my pictures please know I don't have bad taste. I didn't choose for the dress to look like that. Blasted BMs. I just can't wait to be an evil one in return!

                  Also, I'm not super upset over it. I'm more amused than anything I suppose. I just don't want all this bottled up stress blow up the day of the wedding over some "hem job." At least I know some fabulous forum members could photoshop a few pictures for me. hehe
                  Happily married since 2008
