@MrsPinkPeony:  Agreed.

Prettier BMs… fancier dresses… more makeup… whatever. No one is happier than a bride on her wedding day, and the glow of that happiness shines brighter than makeup, dresses and yes, even prettier faces!

Not to mention — that dress is ridiculous, and can only make the bride look better by comparison! LOL

I was so happy to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my cousin’s wedding this past October, and truthfully, no one could have upstaged her. Everyone was so ecstatic for her to be getting married, and as sweet as it was for my Boyfriend or Best Friend to look at me from the audience through the whole wedding and to later tell me that I was just as “radiant” as the bride (obviously he was biased LOL), she was GLOWING. Which is the way it should be… the bride is the most beautiful person on her wedding regardless of how much more physically attractive any one particular Bridesmaid or Best Man may be.

I worry a little bit about this happening at my wedding 🙁 I know I’ll feel beautiful and all, but I’ve always been a little jealous of one of my BM’s. She’s tall, slim, fit, perfect teeth, hair, boobs, etc… it’s not something that has ever affected our friendship bc I think she’s totally awesome!!! I’m just afraid that she’ll look so beautiful that everyone’s going to be thinking that I’m pretty bc I’m the bride, but wow, look at that bridesmaid :/

I think you can have beautiful bridesmaids and they can be in beautiful dresses, but I have personally never seen where bridesmaids have out shined the bride. It is the day of the bride and groom period, so all focus and attention is on them for the most part. IMO

@cardus:  I lol’d.

I’m afraid of this happening at my wedding!  However, I’ll admit that I’ve never attended a wedding yet in which this happened.  Here’s hoping *crosses fingers*.
