BM Dresses (Minus 1)

My BM dresses have arrived! (minus 1 - more about that later) They are gorgeous and I love them. They are Alfred Angelo in sunshine yellow. When I decided on this dress, everywhere had samples in pink. So, when the dress arrived at the local boutique, it was the first time I got to see the dress in the actual color. My BMs and MOHs are wearing the same dress. To differentiate the MOHs a little I'm having a bit of embellishment added to their dresses. This is the dress. It's more sunshine-y in person. My pda camera does it no justice.


Now, back to the "minus one" part. My younger sister (23), for some unknown reason me is opting not to be in the wedding and has not ordered any of her attire, which should have been ordered in November. Everyone else's dress and shoes are here. It's bothersome that she's choosing not to be in the wedding, but what's also bothersome is the way she going about it. She's just not ordering her stuff, and not taking my calls. I had to hear that she has no intention of participating in the wedding from my baby (17) sister. Has anyone else ever had a situation like this with a member of their bridal party?

i don't have any advice on how to deal with the sister, but i'm sorry to hear you're going through that. what a bummer.
not knowing your entire history with her, is there any chance you can get her a message saying you know she's not interested in participating, and that's fine. just so things aren't uncomfortable at the wedding? then you can handle addressing any hurt feelings you may have afterward.

Wow, that is so not cool! She has every right to not want to be in the wedding party, but the mature/adult thing to do would be to talk to you directly instead of acting so passive aggressive. I hope you don't let this damper your spirits too much b/c the dresses you picked are fabulous! Just remember, you can only control the actions of yourself... c'est la vie to the rest of the things you cant' control! :)

Speaking as a sister of a bride who recently turned down her sister's offer of maid of honor duties, I sympathize with your sister trying to avoid the confrontation. I was nervous before turning down my sister, but once I did it, it was not a problem at all. I think that she appreciated my candidness, and now I am looking forward to her wedding! Hopefully your sister will "come around" and at least start taking your calls! Good luck!
