So I need all you brides advice on this one. One of my BM my FH sister who I am very close with is being really frustrating to me and its stressing me out beyond. This is the problem and I need your advice on how to go about it. First off I have 3 BM who are the one mentioned and my two sisters. My sisters are great when I send them links of dresses I like they rarely say anything about them and if they do I know they really hate the dress. But the other one it just seems like everything I send her she has something to say about it....also we are having 3 flower girls. My sisters girl and the mentioned BM 2 girls. One of them is 5 and the other is 2, and the one that is 5 said she isn't wearing any dress that is itchy and she wants it to be blue. The younger is wearing blue and the two older(my sisters is 6) are wearing white with a blue sash. The mentioned BM said that the girl is going to be pissed off....like really she is 5.....anyway and every dress I send her for them she has something to say about that. My FH said to just say this is what they are wearing and thats that but I want her to have some say but its getting to the point I don't know anymore....HELP!!

First post :)
Well it all happened on Jan.24, 2011. We have been together for 10 years (high school sweethearts) We talked about marriage and stuff but both decided it wasn't a good time because Jon was just going back to school to finish his engineering degree and I was just finished so starting a new job. Then we went through a really rough patch with Jons mom passing away suddenly and then a few months later his dad had a heart attack. So anyway it was pretty tough and then finally something great happened, heres the story :)
It was like -30 and we took the dog for a walk which we do every night, and we have this park/ball field by our house that we go to. It was a gorgeous but cold night and the park overlooks the northwest arm and I was saying how much I love it there. He said that it reminded him of the ballfield in Antigonish(where we used to go before we started dating). He asked me if he actually asked me out that night we went there or did he screw it up? I said no you pretty much screwed it up.(He tried to ask me out one night and was so nervous he didn't and ended up smashing my head into a fence on accident cuz he didn't realize I was leaning on the fence and he kinda pushed it cuz he was upset he was so nervous). And then he was like well maybe this will make it up to you and pulled out the ring!!! I was so excited I couldn't believe it that he hid it from me so well!
