I came across this flower which is very pretty, but rather big. My bmaid dresses are the same color. I sent them this flower in an email and said, "Look at the hair flower I bought you guys!" No one responded except for one gutsy girl who bbmed "Is this a joke?" I said, "No, it will look good in the pictures!"
I have really really good friends because no one said anything or complained. I have since started telling them that it was a joke and they are all relieved! They said they were complaining to their SI’s! I am too much.
Has anyone else played tricks on their bmaids? 😉

Haha, classic! I did the same thing with a flower that you actually wore around your neck like a choker! Finally, my MOH shot me a message and said, "Listen, I’m not wearing that. It’s really ugly."

HA! I love that!
I haven’t played a joke on my bridesmaids – but I did suggest that they could wear any color shoes they wanted to with their dress. I noted that if I was wearing the dress, I would wear the gold shoes in my closet.
They apparently all had a sidebar to try to figure out if i was joking…which I was not. They’re all going to wear black shoes…and have asked that I offer no further suggestions due to my terrible taste! Uh oh… 😉

@Hobochic: that is WAY too funny!
I actually really like that flower and wouldn’t have thought you were joking. 😉 Although it is a pretty large accessory for a bridesmaid…

I told one of my bridesmaids that I needed her to grow out her (very short) hair so that it could be styled the same way as my other BMs. She knows how laid back I am and didn’t believe me for a second.

Haha….I think I would get a couple of "Wow, thats interesting"….probably 1 or 2 "how pretty!" and a few non-responses. I’ve heard so many bridal party horror stories that I have tried to make things as painless as possible for my girls and they are all so accomodating to me. They are the best. I might have to try that on them though.

I took a pictures of me holding up an absolutely hideous BM dress (were talking bows and pick ups and frills all over the place!) and sent them a text with the pic saying Id found their dress. Obviously they knew I was joking but it was funny

Oh gosh, very funny! I’d be nervous to do this to my girls…I’m sure one of them would totally end up loving it and then I’d feel bad telling them its a joke! That is my life…I swear.

I haven’t played any tricks on my bridesmaids, but my FSIL’s MOH played a trick on her on April Fools. It just happened that the 1st fell right around the time that they were expecting the bridesmaid dresses to come in (which were supposed to be chocolate brown). She sent a text to my FSIL saying that her dress came in, and it fit perfect….but it was hot pink! My FSIL had a mini meltdown untill the MOH quickly sent her another text showing she was joking…and a picture of her in the BROWN dress!

AH! Yeah, a little big. I did the same to a point. I am looking for some cute and chic looking boleros for my gals to wear and I sent them a link to basically a lingerie patterned website and the “bolero” covered the shoulders but merged into just lace covering the boobies. Tummy was bare with a poofy skirt! HAHA I got no response. Finally had to tell them to breathe. I don’t want my girls look like hookers 😮

Oh that’s mean! But I think the flower WOULD be cute, if it were smaller, haha!
I should’ve freaked ’em all out, too…oh darn!
