I asked my bridesmaids to choose their own styles too. They just had to choose the same color.  I bought their shoes and am paying for their hair so they don’t have to worry about those either.  I want them to feel comfortable and look their best on my wedding day.

I completely agree!!! My bridesmaids were the shit. My Maid/Matron of Honor was my best friend from here in VA, and then my pregnant sister and my brother’s long-term girlfriend. My sister kept squatting down to help me do things and we kept yelling at her to get her pregnant ass up off the floor. But she just wanted to help!

Here is my Maid/Matron of Honor putting on my shoes, aka going spelunking under my dress:

And here are the other two BMs doing surgery on my stupid hoop skirt that kept falling down!

It ain’t always glamorous work, but that’s what friends are for. They didn’t even complain when I gave them those hair combs to wear. I made them, and I’m sure they looked silly to everyone but me, but dammit I LIKED THEM!!! Best bridesmaids ever!

Yay for letting your bridesmaids dress themselves! I’m going this route too.

I had three of the best bridesmaids. My best firend/MOH, my sister and my cousin and even though 2 of them (my sister and my cousin) ended up not being able to make my Destination Wedding (my sister had custody issues with douchey ex who wouldn’t swap weeks or sign passport applications for my niece & nephew and my cousin got knocked up and gave birth 3 days after my wedding so no flying for her) I still considered them my BM’s and didn’t replace them at all.

My Maid/Matron of Honor threw me the best kitchen tea party (like a shower without the presents) and organised a great hens night.

I also paid for everything for all three of them- attire, accessories, shoes and I had even booked hair and make up for all three (had to sign a contract to get the person I wanted) but I never worried about the costs, I was more disappointed by them not being able to be there.

The two of them skyped into the reception (organised via my aunt as a suprise) and they even dressed up in their attire with make up etc. I can still see my cousins baby bump straining against the fabric- it reminded of those unfortunate pictures you often see onthe web.

@iarebridezilla:  I feel like we post the same kind of stuff and had a similar (amazing) wedding experience. Like the gal you keep running into ordering the same drinks at the same bars. I love it. And your bridesmaids sounded like they were some fab girls. Adore those photos.
