I think it’s totally fine! My friend did something similar: she sent her BMs a list of approved dresses, and each girl picked her dress from that list. The bride offered quite a bit of variety, so I think everyone was happy. She wanted to be sure that no one wore the same dress, though, so she just asked that once a girl picked her dress, she let everyone else know. Everyone was really nice about it, and two BMs even ended up switching dresses when one just couldn’t be altered to fit her.

@T.R.Bride: That sounds like a good day to do it.

I don’t think I would tell them who’s wearing what, but give them a list and not allow duplicates :). If it were me and they’re mostly local, I would let them all try on the dresses and take pictures and then let them pick while you’re all together.

That way if someone absolutely can’t pull of a certain style, they won’t get stuck with it because they didn’t check their e-mail in time. It will also allow you to step in if you see someone picking a dress that doesn’t work as well on their shape.

I’m doing the same thing.  I have 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man, and I’m picking about 5 styles for them to choose from.  I was worried about one girl going all “boobyfied” on me.  I really didn’t want her cleavage everywhere in the pictures, so I’ve picked dresses that I don’t have to worry about.  🙂

I don’t think you’re bridezilla at all.  Maybe I am? lol!
