They won’t look better – you’re the bride and that comes with a certain glow! I’ve seen plenty of brides who weighed more than their bridesmaids, but honestly were the most beautiful women there.

they wont look better than you.. just make sure you choose the right dress that looks great on you and flatters your figure and choose simple understated dresses for them.

I have insanely thin and gorgeous bridesmaids and I don’t care! I’m okay with my size and the attention (other than from my brother … hahaha) will be on me! It’s my day! I wouldn’t worry about it! Besides, wouldn’t you have your three best friends standing next to you then some ugly people you don’t really care about?

I am a big girl who had little bridesmaids. I dressed them beautifully and even paid for their hair and makeup, why? because I know that their style and beauty reflects my style and choices. When i look at my pictures all i see is how gorgeous all of us looked. You are the one in the beautiful white dress with the glow of a bride, you will outshine them on your wedding day, trust me. Dress the girls beautifully and be proud to have such beautiful friends to support you.

I am sure no one is going to be thinking, “WOW what stunning bridesmaids. Oh….here comes the bride…” {said in hum ho tone}.

You are going to look beautiful for your wedding. When you feel beautiful it really reflects on the outside, and I think that same goes for when you are self conscious and feel less attractive than someone else. Work on you confidence girl! You are beautiful, you are going to look stunning, your husband-to-be’s heart is going to drop when you walk down the isle.

I admit I have some stunning bridemaids too and I had thought about then looking better than me. However I feel so good in my dress.

If you are concerned that much you could workout (even if it is just toning up a little) but I think you will be fine. You are concerned about it now but when you are walking down the isle and your soon to be hubby is locking eyes with you that will be the LAST thought on your mind.

I’m in the same boat. All of my bridesmaids are a size 2 or 4 and I, well, am not even close to that. ๐Ÿ™‚ When it comes down to it when you are in your dress all done up, you will look stunning along with your beautiful bridesmaids.

My sisters are both drop dead gorgeous, and I’m not…..I did consider making them shave their heads and wear flannel for the wedding, but Fiance thought that would be unreasonable ๐Ÿ™‚

In the end, WE are going to be the brides, and we will be lovely.

Are you planning on having  your hair/make up done?  That might make you feel more “special”

And seriously, you are going to completely outshine them.

You are going to be beautiful!  All eyes will be on you because you are the bride.  As someone said earlier, find a dress that looks good on you.  This will make you realize how beautiful you are.  You will shine because it’s your big day. 

Make your BMs beautiful too.  Let them wear something they feel good in, but fits with your theme.  I can not picture any Bridesmaid or Best Man outshining the bride.  Don’t let the stress of wedding planning play with your head!  You are gorgeous and you will look your best on your wedding day.

Barring the anorexic and morbidly obese, size has nothing to do with beauty. I’m sure you and your bridesmaid will all be stunning on the big day, whether you’re size 2s or size 32s.

Size doesn’t make someone beautiful. Beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes. I am sure you will be a beautiful bride no matter what.

People can be beautiful at any size, I get it.  BUT, I had three bridesmaids size 00, 0 and 2, plus my sister who ordered a size 10 based on her measurements while she was on an extended vacation in Australia.  (I only know exact numbers because I put in the orders for all the dresses together). 

I’m a size 12/14 depending on the day and we joked that we were going to look like brutes beside the other girls, and it was ok because I at least had one ally!  Apparently at some point she ran out of money for food, and came home a size 4. 

I’m embarrassed to admit that I lost it.  Whined to my mom that I was going to look like Godzilla.  Cried to my husband that it was going to look like I was going to eat all four of them for dinner instead of the buffet…

I hate to say it, but you just have to get over it.  You’re the bride.  Eyes are going to be on you.  And on the bright side, if they look great, all the better for your photos, and you likely won’t have to deal with huge drama finding dresses for them!

Don’t worry, you’ll be gorgeous!

I truly only think young guys/men and maybe some girls judge the bride on their size in most instances.

I went to a huge wedding over the summer in another state as a guest of my boyfriend.  My boyfriend went to high school with the groom.  Anyways, the bride was an average sized girl.  Nothing skinny, nothing fat.  She had waifish bridesmaids.  I sat at a table with my boyfriend and all his old HS buddies and some of their dates.  Their dates were sizes 0-4 themselves.  I’m an 8, so I was more in line with the bride.

Anyways, they do judge.  There was one stunning bridesmaid and all the guys thought she was just the hottest thing.  She was about 5’9″, size 2, and gorgeous.  The bride didn’t get so much as a comment when she entered the reception hall.  There was an open bar, so the guys just got drunker as the night went on.  These are guys between the ages of 24 and 28, mind.  Even my boyfriend made a comment on how great the thin guests/bridesmaids looked.  Bride?  No mention.  I was getting pretty worried as I was one of the biggest girls (or biggest) at the table.

So yeah, it does happen.  I sat there and heard all the guys gab about how hot this and that one was… that’s why I think young men are the worst offenders.  The guys I was with are all gym rats and appearances are important to them, so maybe other guys are different.
