Hi Bees! I’ve been engaged for only two weeks so far but I’ve managed to get quite a bit done (date, venue, church, dresses for me/my mom/groom’s mom, centerpieces, guest list, save the dates). I’ve actually had fun with everything so far… EXCEPT…
Bridesmaid dresses! My two sisters are going to be my bridesmaids. One sister is in Texas and the other is here in PA with me. When I originally thought of dresses, I intended to have them pick out a black dress of their choice, thinking that would make shopping easier/cheaper and each sister would pick a dress that was flattering to them. The flip side of this is that they won’t necessarily look like “bridesmaids”, especially after the wedding ceremony when everyone is all mixed together at the reception.
What’s your opinion? Are matching dresses necessary– why or why not?
