One of my BMs actually sent me that article because she thought it was funny.  I am NOT having one of these because I think that they are absolutely pathetic.  Do you want these women (and sometimes men) to stand up with you and be your honor attendants because you love them or because you want them to look good (i.e. no weight gain, no changing of hairstyle, no pregnancies).  One of my BMs is planning on getting pregnant sometime this year (our wedding is 13 months away).  She actually asked me if I would get upset if she was to be pregnant during the wedding! If that were to happen, my #1 priority is the baby’s health and her comfort!  I can’t believe brides actually make people sign these… talk about Bridezilla.

Is it April 1st already?  You’ve got to be kidding!  Those brides mind as well hire ‘models’ to be their attendants.

About 10 people have sent me that article over the last few days – mostly people uninvolved with the wedding, thank god (I’m not one of those brides, please don’t let me be one of those brides).

I think they’re urban legends that keep going around to keep us in line – the more bridezilla stories we hear, the more worried we are about being bridezillas, right?

haha Sweeney made a post about this yesterday morning and I found some articles about them (both from the UK)

an article about it here: <font size=”2″ color=”#99cc00″>http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2008/02/04/nbmaid104.xml</font&gt;

and if you are in need of a contract you can download one from the magazine that did the survey here: <font size=”2″ color=”#99cc00″>http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/index.php/v1/Bridesmaid_contract</font&gt; so

I thought it was interesting that under the picture in the article the caption said that it was the latest trend in america…but maybe that’s for the same reason people thought it was legit in the ABC article

I’ve never heard of that! My only rules were 1) No crazy hair colors (one bridesmaid goes from blonde to green to brunette to orange, so I asked she has it toned down for one day) and 2) No visible boob tattoo. If the boob tattoo is visible, you’re dress is WAAAAAY too small. It’s more of a running joke than a demand

I agree that the hair/pregnancy clauses are ridiculous.  But…what about a contract that lays out what the bride expects of the BMs, and vice versa?  i.e. “Bridesmaids will pay for own dress & shoes.  Bride will pay for hair and makeup.  Bridesmaids will throw wedding shower, bride will pay for favors and food.”  Or whatever.  I think it might be helpful for people who are timid and having trouble speaking up to the BMs about their responsibilities for fear of offending them.
