Wow! You must have a ton of really great friends! 🙂
I don’t have a lot of girl friends, I’ve actually never been a bridesmaid or MOH! I was a junior bridesmaid for my cousin when I was like 10, and a flower girl for some random chick at my church when I was 4. Thats it!
I think it seems like fun… but I know it does get really expensive.

wow! what a group of friends you have. i’ve only been in two weddings, bridesmaid as both.
@corgitales, it’s only as expensive as the bride dictates. the most i spent as a bm was under $300? that included the dress, shoes, hairpin [that i made], bridal shower, bachelorette and wedding gift. we all worked together to do our best to keep costs down for everyone.
both times i was a bridesmaid, the brides worked with us on our budget limits for dresses and let us pick our own shoes and do our own makeup and hair which helped shave off money. also, we kept the bridal showers and bach parties pretty lowkey, which was also the style of the brides. so it really just depends!

Wow, you have a lot of friends.LOL I got 3, not counting my sister and cousins who I hang out with.LOL
I’ve been a bridesmaid 2 times. Never a Maid/Matron of Honor.
My other friend, who I’d like to be a bridesmaid, depending on which of us gets engaged first, has been a brisdesmaid 5 times. I want her to be one, but then I don’t want her to dread it.

Wow thats pretty cool to have such an “honor” though 🙂 And nice you dont have to buy a dress, I cant beleive shes putting together a wedding in 3 weeks though! After October 24th I will have been a bridesmaid twice and a Maid/Matron of Honor once in the past 3 months (and a bride for mine in June!) I dont plan on being in any more weddings though since almost all my friends are married now 🙂

I’ve been Maid/Matron of Honor for two different weddings. I am planning my wedding for next summer and am having a hard time deciding on who to have as my Maid/Matron of Honor.
