@Stephefanie:  two of my bridesmaids are getting married but they got engaged before I did. I’m still excited for theirs ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚
