(Closed) How much say did your bridesmaids have in their dresses?

posted 9 years ago in Bridesmaids
  • poll: BM dresses - how much say did you give your girls?

    100% of the decision was theirs

    I just gave them the colour - they picked the dress

    I gave them colour & basic style/cut but they picked the dress

    I picked a few dresses and let them choose

    I decided on the dress

    I voted that I decided, my girls haven’t ordered theirs yet, but what we are doing is they are picking out what they like and all 3 are trying them on, and in the end I will make the final decision.

    @AmyFarrahFowler:  This is why I did it the same way. Don’t have as many bridesmaids, but the girls I am having also have very different body shapes and styles and it would be impossible to find something that flatters them all when they vary from a size 6AU to a size 18AU and from 5’1 to 5’10.

    they all chose their own LBDs.  They know what looks good on them.  I didn’t want everyone looking the same.

    I couldn’t really vote.. because I did in the end choose the dress they all were to wear.. but I went shopping with my Maid/Matron of Honor and she was the one who chose it as well.. soo it was a joint decision between me and my Maid/Matron of Honor but the rest of the girls just got told what they were wearing! lol

    I’m picking a designer, fabric and length. My Maid/Matron of Honor is trying on dresses today to see which styles she likes best. At the moment they have 14 dresses that fit the parameters. I’m debating opening up the fabric category though (currently all the options are 100% charmeuse, I’m debating adding styles that would be charmeuse and chiffon) so that they have twice as many choices. I’m letting them all be in the same dress or all be in different dresses.

    The had no say at all lol. I chose the infinity dress which was reasonably priced, they can all wear it again and they can tie them up any way they like so that they each have their own look.

    My Maid/Matron of Honor had free reign to pick whatever she wanted. That said, she and I could pretty much share a closet because we have such similar taste, so I knew that anything she chose would be perfect. Oh, and I paid for her dress.

    I am currently a bridesmaid, and the bride is picking our dress, shoes, accessories, and probably our hairstyle as well. Different strokes…

    My sister is my only attendant and I told her to pick out something she would want to wear, short dress.  She likes purple, so purple sheath it is!

    I’m not sure how to answer- my Maid/Matron of Honor (I didn’t have any BM’s) both picked out the same dress at the same time. I did choose the color, although she really liked it too. It was remarkably drama-free!
