In our case we wanted our bridesmaids to wear the same dress, accessories and shoes so we paid for everything wedding related.

I’ve been in two weddings, and I wore what the bride chose in both. I would never have selected those dresses or those colors, but it’s not about my choice, it’s about the bride’s. In each case. I wore the dress happily because I was asked to be a part of her special day and it meant the world to me.

I would never let someone I asked to be a part of my bridal party decide on the things for my wedding, but that’s just me. If I had a vision of long bridesmaid dresses in what are MY ceremony and MY wedding photos, that’s what I’m getting. If she didn’t want to wear the dress, too bad, she could suck it up or not be in my bridal party. None of the other girls seem to think it’s their place, right?

It wouldn’t make you a bridezilla at all, in my opinion.

lately its becoming a trend where brides allow bridesmaids to pick the dress but i don’t like that idea even for mix and match themes.
