Truth be told, I don’t think it’s that crazy for a bride to offer shape-wear & bras for her bridesmaids; I rather pay for that then a 6 month gym membership for the ladies of the wedding party (>_<). What’s the craziest request you’ve ever heard?
DEAR MISS MANNERS: My daughter is to be a bridesmaid for a bride who is buying everyone shapewear, which they are expected to wear, and her mother is buying everyone “a good bra.”
This seems to me to be a bit excessive, but as a woman in her seventh decade of life, perhaps I am just behind the times. How might one best handle this expectation?
