They could do an asymetrical updo or ponytail, but realistically I think you just need to let it go. No one cares about your bridesmaids’ earrings.

Very common since almost no one will be flattered by the same hair style anyway. You could do something like everyone updo but not specifcy how, or everyone half up but not “everyone must have a low bun on the right side with a left part” kind of thing. And you might ask your friend if she wants to wear just one earring, to me that would be super annoying especially if they are big earrings. If she isn’t comfortable with that and just doesn’t wear them at all no one will notice.

Don’t worry about your girls having different hair styles! No one will notice if they do!

Other ideas are making it into a magnet earing (if possible, it would make it higher up on her ear), or you could buy her an ear cuff, that the earing can be slipped into. That would only work if the earings aren’t that heavy. Or she could just not wear the earrings. I dont think anyone would notice! And it’s not that big of a deal.

Hair style ideas

@eleven10twelve:  most earrings can be easily converted to a clip on. 

Although I’m not a fan of the clone look and just told all the girls to wear their hair up with whatever silver toned jewellery they wanted.

@eleven10twelve:  have all your girls wear one earring and say it’s the new trend.

@eleven10twelve:  with styles like that it would still be obvious if she was only wearing on earring if it’s anything other than a small stud/hoop.

If you are open to having them wear different earrings, you could find a nice pair of clip-on earings to compliment the other girls’ earrings.  Macy’s sells some nice clip on styles, or I’m sure the web has some too.  As PP suggested I don’t think anyone notices the BM’s jewelry.  As for hair, I think it’s common to have different styles.  I don’t think that you (or they) will want to worry about their hair perfectly covering their ear all day!  One of my bridesmaids had really short hair and the other wore her shoulder length hair down, and they looked great! 

EDIT:  when I first started typing this there was only 1 response!  LOL I am not fast enough.

@eleven10twelve:  I’m glad you found that funny haha. I was worried after I posted it that it could come across as snarky or bitchy. 

I think looking into making them clip on is a great idea! I never knew you could do that either!

@eleven10twelve:  Arghh as someone without pierced ears I can tell you the clip ons, even the good expensive ones, hurt like a (insert expeltive here), especially if worn for a long time.

I also dont have pierced ears so I would be completely stressed if I had to wear clip ons.   And it would be hard for me to feel like I am throwing off the whole “feel” of the wedding.
