Yeah, my sister told the makeup artist who was doing my makeup that she wanted to look better than me. (When I was her MOH). She’s actually the pretty one too, but looks only get you so far in life if you don’t have the personality to back it up.

I’ve seen pretty Bridal Party members, but I’ve never thought less of the bride because of it. Brides always steal the show.

trust me, all eyes are on the bride at a wedding and I am sure you will look beautiful!

 

its natural to compare your looks to your friends but don’t let those thoughts eat you up inside. It’s bad energy and not worth your time.

Oh gosh! Don’t worry about a thing. You’ll be gorgeous.

Do your bms normally wear a light amount of makeup? You could have them do theirs themselves and then get yours professionally done.

I believe every bride should feel like the most beautiful person in the room on her big day!

Don’t worry, you’ll still be the center of attention because you’re the bride!  Don’t ask them to do different makeup, that’s just silly.

I know that my Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) is prettier than me – she always has been.  She’s blonde, really thin, and just so cute.  I kind of look like a fat Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie.  But my H loves me more than anything and thinks I’m the most gorgeous woman in the world!  As long as HE had stars in his eyes on the wedding day (which he did) I didn’t care what anyone else thought!  Plus, my hair and makeup people did an amazing job, so even fat Laura Ingalls looked as good as she could look πŸ™‚

ALL of my bridesmaids are total hotties. I mean, I think I’m attractive, but I always feel less attractive than they are.

 

I have no shame letting people know that I want to FEEL like I look better than everyone. I know “I’m the bride” and all eyes will be on me, but I want to make sure I FEEL like I’m the prettiest. I totally get what you’re saying and I’m right there with you. πŸ™‚

@poppygirl16:  Yeah, it is just that. Sad. In her defense, she was 22 at the time. But still.

I think you should stop being so insecure.  You’re the bride, it’s your wedding and all eyes will be on you! No need to “sabotage” the rest of your bridal party.  I’m the opposite, I want all my girls to look their best at my wedding, including me.  Please just enjoy your wedding and stop comparing yourself.  You’re the one who’s getting married, not them πŸ˜‰

@poppygirl16:  I think usually the better looking the group the more  everyone appears gorgeous you know? Think ofa group of great looking girls together in a bar! Everyone looks good!

@Diamondgurl:  +1000 The world is full of beautiful people there will always be someone who you think is prettier than you if that is how you choose to define yourself.  See who you are and love yourself and be the best person you can be.
