All the girls and I went shopping and all I said was I want it to be floor length, blue, and would like them to be semi similar. I didn’t think we would find a dress that would flatter all of them since they are all different sizes and heights so I figured as long as they looked good together I really didn’t care.

At each store they all looked at the dresses together and pulled a bunch to try on and whoever was closest to the size of the sample would try it on. We found some that we liked earlier that day and at the 3rd store they all went in dressing rooms to each put on a different dress. Once they all came out and saw the one bridesmaid they all loved it and said that was the one and they didn’t even want to try on anymore. It was kind of funny since thats what I did when I found my wedding dress. I really like it and I’m glad they loved it and picked it. Now we are just counting down the days until they come in.

Lol! Isn’t it funny how that works?? I told my girls they could wear different dresses as long as it was in the right color and floor length (because that is what a few of them requested). A few of my BMs came dress shopping one day and they all ended up liking the same dress! We ended up having my 2 MOHs in one style of dress and the other BMs all in another style of dress!. So funny!

That’s exactly what I did. I said ‘this length this color, go to town’ and they ended up in the same dress haha.

I was trying to be the cool bride…telling my girls to all pick their own dress.  But when I went shopping with my sister (who is the MOH) we decided that the one dress we both loved, was what I wanted all the girls to wear.  D’oh!  So much for being cool. 

It is pretty funny though that all your girls ended up going with the same dress!

@ShellVee: Not for me, they all ended up in different ones, but ironically patterened where when they are standing it is strapless, one strap, strapless, two straps! 

For my sisters wedding two years ago though this happend, we all ended up loving the same dress, so we all matched even though she just said, blue and short.

@Kari 2012:

That’s the same dress both of my MOHs picked!  I told all of my girls, anything from Bill Levkoff that comes in satin Eggplant.  They both loved that dress.  Worked out though.  Both MOHs wore the same and then everyone else picked a different one.

YUP! Same with me, lmboo!! All my BMs are all slim and really tall, so they would all look good in the same dress but they have curves in different places so I wanted the heavy chested girls to feel comfortable so ALL I told them was that, the dress had to be peach, floor length, and chiffon. When they got there…one of my BMs (she makes EVERYthing she wears look good) tried it on…and the other girls dropped ALL the dresses in their hands and gravitated towards the one she was trying on, lol! Here is the dress…it of course looks better on them haha!

I was a maid in a wedding last year where none of the BMs had ever met any of the other ones before.  The bride was in Japan at the time, so she couldn’t come dress shopping with us.  She just said it had to be a floor-length dress in marine blue from DB.  Another one of the four BMs and I both went shopping the same day (unbeknownst to each other) and on opposite sides of the country, and we both picked the same one.  The bride told the other two girls which one we had chosen and gave them the option of getting the same one.  One of those two decided that one looked best on her, too!  There was only one girl in a different dress.  It was pretty silly how it worked out.

yup, this happened to me too. I told my BM’s that I wanted them to showcase their own style in their dresses as their personalities are completely opposite. One is pop, the other is rock n’ roll. They both ended up picking the same dress, and it looks fantastic on both of them. I hope they accessorize with their own style.

Happened with us… My Maid/Matron of Honor and FM are to wear Brown, my BM’s are to wear Green. We went shopping and now my BM’s and FM have the same dress in the 2 colors and my Maid/Matron of Honor dress has not been purchased yet. We went to 4 stores, ended up purchasing the dresses at Burlington for $40 each, I will post pics when I get them. Still waiting for the girls to send them to me.
