We complain about bridesmaids a lot, I’ve done it too. But really, my bridesmaids are really really awesome and I don’t really have anything to complain about.
My girls were awesome about dresses, in fact, they were so concerned about making ME happy that it was annoying because I just wanted THEM to be happy.
They are flying in from halfway across the country for me – 2 days before the wedding.
They have been super supportive and there for me during meltdowns, they constantly ask about the wedding and how things are going.
They are great friends and I love them.
Share your bridesmaid love 🙂

MsGinkgo: Mine are GREAT! One is my sister and she’s queen of keeping it real. I love her to bits and she’s so supportive. She’s still in school but is willing to give me tons of time and counsel.
One is a friend from work who has seen my career evolve and is supportive, loves shopping and crafting with me and she reins me in from going overboard on guest comfort. So sorry for no cold pressed, locally harvested fresh juices, friends.
One is always down to help me figure out wine list, signature drink list and how to keep things classy on a budget.
and my final one is my BFF from college. She’s willing to buy / wear / travel where ever.
My girls are awesome and I love sharing this time with them. I told them to spend ONLY what they are comfortable with and have picked out a range of dresses, all < $200 for them, and asked that they help me keep things under control. 🙂
