Dang that’s crazy. Were they white too? I’d never do that and I’ve never seen it

Honestly I have. The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were really lovely. But I think I just prefered their hair and accessories. The bride looked like more of a Bridesmaid or Best Man than her Maid/Matron of Honor.

That dress is insane tho! Looks like a modern wedding dress!

I’ve never been to a wedding where the bridesmaids out shown the bride in a good way, but I was at a wedding when a girl from the wedding party stuck out in a bad way. 

She was an acolyte (which I personally think is a role for a child – she looked to be in college) and she had a really short metallic dress, a really low-cut strapless top, and really tall heels. The rest of the bridal party was much more modest in cotton tea-length dresses with cap sleeves. It was really strange (to me.)

Yes, they are weddings where the bridesmaids are really beautiful..and the bride is beautiful on the inside. They would outshine in looks..but overall.. the day belongs to the bride.

I felt so bad on the day, as i went to alot of effort to look good (ie spray tan, fake nail) and the bride had her hair n make up done and thats it…. I cant help but think to myself, that can never happen to me lol

@Leash182: You have a biased view of whether or not you outshone the bride.

Yes, the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding I was in over the summer outshone her cousin the bride. By herself, the bride is nice-looking, blonde-ish, not very fit but not overweight. The cousin/MOH was tall, thin/toned, very tan, had dark hair, more prominant facial features, and wore her makeup beautifully. The bride is a much nicer person, TBH, so it didn’t help for all of us to see the “hot, b!tchy cousin” outshine the sweet bride, but she did. The photogs were all over her too, telling her she was “model gorgeous” and should pose for shots. 

The bride did have The Glow, as they say, and her gown was flattering, but looking at those pictures makes me a little sad for her.

Sometimes the bridesmaids are just prettier than the bride, it’s part of life.

Nope. I’m sorry but in my opinion there is nothing that outshines a bride on her wedding day. I’ve attended lots of weddings and been in numerous ones as well. The bridesmaids might be “prettier” but they certainly never outshin the bride. This of course if just MY personal opinion.

@Leash182: you have a pretty high opinion of your spray tan and fake nails.

I have been to a lot of weddings and no, I can’t say that the bridesmaids ever outshone the bride.
