What a graceless and charm less ing response to everyone's concerns!

CaptainCrunch Mon 16-May-16 17:06:09

She should go as a stormtrooper.

PotterBot Mon 16-May-16 17:07:36

She does have ASD so it's with relief that I don't have to battle her into what everyone else is wearing.

She has relented to wear a dress but and I quote 'you are not brushing my hair'.

When I read that I thought you meant the bride. I thought it was going to be an interesting look on the day.

Haha no Dd. Although dd with all her ways is better behaved than the bride and more reasonable.

wear what the fuck we want

How different, how very different from the home life of our own dear Queen!

She sounds SO lovely grin

I vote the minecraft dress for your DD

You go as a witch complete with pointy hat (or a funeral type outfit)

DP wears an Elsa dress.

I've just re-read the original thread. How vair satisfying grin

expatinscotland Mon 16-May-16 17:32:36

Definitely the Minecraft dress!

this reminded me of the lovely DoubleNegativePanda and her wedding. Her little sister confused Ring Bearer with .....

DoubleNegativePanda Sat 14-May-11 11:23:24
YANBU to be unhappy about it and do exactly as you are doing. Myself, I wouldn't have minded a green pageboy. But then, I allowed my little sister with Down Syndrome to dress in a Frodo Baggins costume in my wedding. She confused "ring bearer" with "bearer of the ring" and BANG! I had Frodo in my wedding grin

Actually, the wedding album is pretty amazing. Big white dress, tuxedos, formal bridesmaids....and one cloaked Hobbit with polished walking staff.*

That Minecraft Sweeper Tutu is ace! You have to make her one.

Nannawifeofbaldr Mon 16-May-16 17:50:51

Keep the moral high ground.

Don't be understandably arsey.

Put her in an appropriate dress.

sepa Mon 16-May-16 17:52:16

Just read part of the first thread. Let DD wear what she wants. That bride sounds a nightmare saying what guests should wear!

Trumpton Mon 16-May-16 17:52:48

The thread about green haired nephew that contains DoubleNegativePanda's photo link at 14-may-11 14.33.

PotterBot Mon 16-May-16 17:53:03

That's amazing, sod it I'm going to sit her down at the weekend with a Lord of the rings boxset and channel her obsessive behaviour into a different direction. We can go as the fellowship of the ring I'll dress smallest Dd up as gimli.
