Being a bridesmaid can be overwhelming, costly and annoying. But you're still supposed to make every effort to do what the bride says.
A mom recently took to Reddit after she let her 14-year-old daughter wear flip-flops as a bridesmaid, even though the bride had requested heels. The bride never noticed at the time — but now she thinks her photos were ruined. The mom is now wondering if it was wrong to make an executive decision like this without consulting the bride.
My daughter, 14, was invited to be a bridesmaid in my niece’s wedding last minute [two weeks before the wedding]. One of the bridesmaids backed out and they needed a replacement to make it even.
Everyone was instructed to wear silver heels. My daughter has never worn heels but agreed to try for the wedding. The night before the wedding, my daughter goes to the wedding location(backyard of my aunt’s house, where we were staying) and tests her walking in heels. The aisle is a DIY job of brick done by aunt many years ago. Not stable or easy to walk on, especially in heels.
