Ha! I haven’t been doing it purposefully, but I went to look at Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses by myself one day, and became the victim of an overzealous salewoman who had me try on ridiculous single strap chiffon concoctions (well, they just weren’t me). I sent a picture to the girls, assuming they would know I was suffering in it…but they were so positive! When I clarified, that these dresses were NOT in the running, their relief was EXTREME. I can’t believe they would have been willing to go along with something so hideous! Then I look on this board and see Bridesmaid or Best Man demands about dressess and whatnot, it’s hard to believe it’s real. I can’t believe how lucky I am to have the BMs I do.

btw, it actually gets better. We decided on JCrew dresses fairly early. I gave them leeway to pick dresses in the same fabric, in the same color family. Four different girls, four different body types, four different colorings – it just made sense to me to do it that way. I didn’t care that the dresses wouldn’t be the same style or color. They all get back to me…with the same dress in the same color. I’d bet anything there was some collusion going on with that choice – they were so concerned I’d someday regret that my pictures wouldn’t look uniform! Love them so much.

PinkFlamingo, what are you getting them? I feel the same way…there’s just not enough that I can possibly do to show them how grateful I am!

I was cringing a bit when I told my unofficial Maid/Matron of Honor that I am considering orange dresses (it’s my faovirte color and yellow and orange are the wedding colors) and cowboy boots (it’s a backyard wedding and I just love the way they look). She told me that she absolutely refused to walk down the aisle naked but as long as I let her wear clothes, she’ll wear whatever I want. I knew there was a reason she’s my best friend!

aww, yay for great bridesmaids (I couldn’t say “great BMs”)! I have some great girls too. When we were looking for dresses, all of them said they didn’t care what the dress looked like as long as I’m happy.  And when I was looking to book the hair and make up artists, there was a problem with the timing, each one of my girls offered to get their hair and make up done somewhere else because they want to make sure there is enough time for me to get my stuff done without being rushed. Luckily we were able to adjust timing and everybody is getting hair and make up done together!

Right now they are working on the bridal shower and one of my BMs and her mom (who is like my 2nd mom) are making favors and decorations, they are going all out. I love my girls!

@PinkFlemingo:  With as much joking as you’ve done, I think you definitely need to pull a prank on them. Like the absolute worst accessories you can think of for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts at the rehearsal. Let them cringe and pretend they’re nice then let them in on the prank.

She sounds just like my niece…so gullible!

My fun starts that I wanted them to wear green dresses, and my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t want to wear one and was being PA about it. We managed to find a gorgeous dress that everyone loved including her!

Next I started making hair flowers out of plum organza with beads in the center, to which Maid/Matron of Honor was also not happy about. The other girls seem to think they are cute, I’ll be wearing similar ones in ivory. 

Then there was the great shoe debacle, because I thought it would be cute for them to wear purple shoes. This really wound up not being feasible so we have since switched to pewter and everyone is much happier. 

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister who is 14 mos younger than me, if that helps explain why she is being such a brat. She’s been very supportive so long as its not about what she’s wearing. 

@PinkFlemingo:  the rosette on the pink flower I thinkis too much, if it was a pearly like in the white flower I think it would be very cute but the rosette seems to make it less of a legitmate hairpiece and a little bit too costumey. But if I was your bridesmaid I’d wear it anyway πŸ™‚

Haha, that’s awesome.  When I sent my bridesmaids the info for the dresses, I attached a link that sent them to uglydress.com (a treasure trove of hilarity, by the way).  Fortunately, they all have a good sense of humor.  πŸ™‚

Yes!  Haha I laughed really hard at this post. 

@PinkFlemingo:  That is awesome.  Your Maid/Matron of Honor sounds awesome. 

I’ve threatened for years to my best friend and my sister that I was going to find the most hideous, unflattering, poofy bridesmaid dress in existence.  My Maid/Matron of Honor told me just to tell her when and where and what to wear, even if it was a mumu and we were getting married in the middle of a corn field.

@PinkFlemingo:  HAHAHA omg I think I’d be excited to get spanx! Sometimes chiffon isnt so forgiving and I see myself bloating up come the end of dinner. Customized would make it that much better!
