- Wedding: September 2013 - Outdoor
So out of 5 bridesmaids, 3 of them are also planning their own weddings! I got engaged first, and one of the girls got engaged 4 days after me! Her wedding is going to be before mine, and she didn’t ask me to be in her wedding. I am a little hurt about that, and I wish she and I were being able to plan together more. more, but its ok. She’s still very excited to be in my wedding 2 months after hers.
2nd bridesmaid got engaged about a month after me, her wedding is the farthest away, next spring/summer. They havent set a date yet, but she’s keeping me in the loop and if she asks I would love to be in her wedding.
3rd bridesmaid just got engaged a month or so ago, and has just set her date for early 2014! So about 3 months after mine. She and I have been having the most fun discussing details and planning things out. So far we are both having aqua (though with different accent colors) and both found really unique golf course venues. We are definitely different in some ways so I’m not worried about her copying me at all. I am just having fun. She hasn’t asked yet, but I would love to be in her wedding and have already suggested having a shower for her in our hometown.
So far no hurt feelings or conflicts, but the main thing is we are all busy busy!!! I don’t know if I can get all 5 of them together before my wedding, but I’m trying!!
Any of you have more than one wedding in your bridal party??? How’s it going?

@Stephefanie: two of my bridesmaids are getting married but they got engaged before I did. I’m still excited for theirs 🙂 they chose not to have a bridal party due to bridesmaid drama from another wedding last year.
Just make sure you have everything under control if you and your Fiance. Do understand that everyone is going to be really easy, so only rely on you and your Fiance. As long as you don’t expect your bridesmaids to do anything, you’ll cut down 95% of the drama 🙂

Wow, that’s quite a coincidence! But I guess it makes sense if people in an area get married around a certain time, and friends are the same age. It seems to happen in waves with my friends.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is already married and the other two bridesmaids are single. I was Maid/Matron of Honor at my MOH’s wedding 🙂

Two of mine just got married, one of mine just got engaged, and the other one is about to have a baby. It’s such a busy time, but it’s so much fun!

One of mine will be getting married probably 3-4 months before me. Other than that 3 out of the other 4 girls are already married. 🙂

That’s really exciting for all of you. Just make sure you don’t build up expecations so high you will be really hurt if they don’t come through. Everyone has really different criteria for choosing bridesmaids…me personally, I chose to not include friends because I wanted to avoid choosing between and leaving someone out. I’m having my very bff (everyone knows she is, no one would dare question) and 3 cousins.

wow! That’s a lot! Sounds like you have a good attitude about it though…I could see some getting bent out of shape. It is hard not having Bridesmaid or Best Man to really rely on though when they are all busy with their own wedding, but that’s the way it is I guess!
My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor (and I hers). Our weddings are six weeks apart and we live in different parts of the country (and both doing the wedding somewhere other than where we live). Needless to say, neither of us are very hands on with the others wedding!

Update!! I’m going to be a bridesmaid in bridesmaid 3’s wedding!! I am so excited!!! She sent me this huuuge box full of packing peanuts with a bottle of sparkly with a note that said “Will you be my bridesmaid?” Of course the bottle was wrapped and taped in bubble wrap that I COULD NOT get off, so I was like, laughing and crying trying to figure it out. It was a surprise, I knew she had sent me something becuase we get UPS alerts whenever they have a package on their way to us, but I thought it might be something to do with my wedding since she had been doing a couple enrrands for me. Surprise! It’s wedding season all around!!

My Maid/Matron of Honor got engaged in January and is having her wedding in October 2014 where I’ll be her Maid/Matron of Honor. I got engaged last month and will get married summer 2014, so while we’re wedding planning at the same time it seems like it will be staggered enough that it’s not a big deal. Plus neither one of us are “princess brides” where we expect the world to revolve around us while we’re engaged. We’re both realize it’s a DAY, not a month or a year that you get. My biggest expectation from my bridesmaids is for them to have fun at the wedding. I’m expecting one of my other bridesmaids to get engaged before we actually get married. Which I’ll be excited about. My two older sisters got engaged within a few months of each other. The sister who got engaged later and is also 5 years old than my other sister asked if it was ok if they got married in the same year (being 5 years older, and in her early 30s she wanted to try to start having kids asap, so didn’t want to put the wedding off for another year). My other sister was fine with it, she just requested that they have the wedding after theirs. They ended up being a month apart and it was a great time at both! No drama.

@Stephefanie: One of my bridesmaids is getting married this fall, but I have two pregnant bridesmaids, too. I am one of the last of my friends to get married (last one except for the one bridesmaid who is engaged) so babies are next on the list – and besides the two preggers bms another one already has a baby. My last bm is my fsil who is quite a bit younger so she’s not married OR having babies, but she’s the odd one out. 🙂
