I am letting them pick their hairstyles.  And their dresses ( I just pick the color, material and length). I want everyone to look their best; that involves the confidence associated with customizing their own look.

I let them pick, I wanted them to feel confident with how they looked, and I know there are certain hairstyles where I hate the way they make my face look. To be honest it always kinda looks weird to me when the bridesmaids all have matching updos.

@Tanya5484: I’m letting my girls do what they want.  I am paying for their hair and made up-do appointments for them (except my sister who has short hair and wants to do hers herself), but if they don’t want an up-do then I can change the appointment.  If they all want up-dos they can still get it done however though.

I’m the same as most of you. I’m letting them pick how they want to do their hair. I want them to look and feel beautiful, so the best way is to let them choose!

I am paying for their hair and makeup to be done, so whatever they choose, I know they’ll all look gorgeous anyway!

I haven’t even picked dresses yet, I have no idea about hair. But I’ll most likely just let them do what they want!

Haha, I must be the only one. All my girls have hair the same length (just at their shoulders), so I’m having them all part it on the left and wear it straight. I’m debating whether to gift them all hair pins (the same pin), but probably won’t. I picked their jewelry too, though I just told them to wear a pearl necklace and earrings they already own. I kinda want them to all look the same. *blush* But I’ll gladly do the same for their weddings. I did try not to give them anything to pay for aside from the dress.

I am letting them do what they want, but just asked they each have a braid on the front/side of their head. I also gave them a picture. =)

@sweetpea87: I was thinking the same thing as I was reading all the comments, ” I must be the only one” … I picked out the dress, although I did take their input into my decision.  I narrowed it doen to 4 dresses told them to tell me their top 3 picks, and also had them try them all on, then I made the final decision based on their opinions & mine of course.  And I am buying them their shoes and jewelery (all matching).  They will be getting their hair done the same way, paid for by me, not sure about the make up.  The same make-up artist will be doing everyones make-up though, again paid for by me.  I have nothing against bridesmaids being different, it’s just not for me.  My maid of honor will have something to set her apart, like a different colored sash or something.  Every wedding I have been in has been like mine, matching bridesmaids.  All 6 of my bridesmaids have all said “it’s your day, just tell us what you want”.

Whatever they want for their hair, they’ll probably all wear it down, we’re not the most high maintainance group. I gave them dress guidelines and they’re picking those themselves too. I might say all brown heels…

I am having them wear either a headband or some type of fascinator that I am going to get them…. most have already said they wanted to do 1/2 up 1/2 down… so we will all get together and figure out what everyone feels comfortable with.

they are getting to pick whatever dress they want (in a certain color) wear their hair they way they want, wear the shoes they want, and wear the jewlery they want.

Nope. They will all wear same dress but whatever shoes/hair they want. I was in a wedding where everyone had to wear the same style and to be honest i didn’t think it looked very good – I have long thick hair and my bff has short thin hair. Our “same” hair style made us both look ridiculous and we didn’t look the same (maybe it would work if your girls had similar hairstyles)? But, that’s just my 2c, and since I don’t have the $ to pay for their hair, if they want to pay, they can do whatever they want (including doing it themselves!)

My girls will be wearing their hair in the same style 🙂 lol. Am I the only one that wants to do this? I did get their input and we all came to the decision together. But I am really considering just letting them get a blow dry and leave it down.
