Would you make her wear a mermaid style dress??

you have an overweight friend as a bridesmaid in your wedding.. well now she is pregnant too.. so by the time you get married she will be 8 months.. would you let her wear a different style dress so that she is more comfortable ?? Or would you make her wear the mermaid style dress?

  • I think that the bride should either let her wear a more comfortable (and more flattering) dress, or ask her to step down from the wedding. At 8 months pregnant she may not feel like standing thru the whole ceremony.
    When my ex step sil got married I was supposed to be in her wedding, but then I found out I was pregnant (due 3 wks after her wedding) so she said she was concerned that I would not be comfortable standing that long, or be comfortable in the dress/shoes that she picked out and she also joked that maybe it would be a birth and a wedding (as you never know when babies decide to make their appearance). We both agreed that it would be best for me to step down and let someone else be in the wedding.

  • I would let her wear a different style. I wouldn't want to humiliate a bridesmaid! Plus, I would want people looking at me, not staring at her.

  • Then, if it were me, I would bow out of being a bridesmaid.

    A bride that doesn't care about the comfort of their entorage is not a very nice person.

  • yea exactly.. I told her to tell her she won't be in the wedding then.. mermaid dresses aren't flattering on most people let alone a woman who is 8 months pregnant.

  • Tell the bride people will be looking in shock at the large pregnant woman in a mermaid dress, and not at her. No one looking at the bride? Maybe she will change her tune then!

  • First off, I have NEVER seen an attractive mermaid style dress. So no, I wouldn't make her wear one...

    BUT, I would expect her to wear whatever dress I did choose. Otherwise she could simply decline to be in the wedding.
