Some of these brides amaze me lol
I checked with my bridesmaids that they were happy with their dresses before I bought them. I wanted them to feel comfortable and sexy. I asked them if they were okay to have smokey eyes. I told them to buy their own shoes so they were comfortable and they got to decide on their hairstyle.
I feel like people take it too far when they want their perfect day.
They wore their own shoes and I paid for hair, makeup and jewelry. So really all they paid for was the dress.
My two sisters are my MOH and BM,
They are paying for there own dress.
They can pick anything as long as its a black knee-ish length dress with straps.
I'll pay for the rest.
I can't believe what some of you have put up with!!
Why wouldn't you say no? I haven't been a bridesmaid but cant understand why anyone would put up with some of these things..
I'm bridesmaid for my brothers wedding next year... So it's tradition in Ireland the bride and groom pay for everything. Bride has sent me a picture of the dress... Omfg... If I was a size 8 17yo going to the grad then it would be lovely, but I'm a freakin size 12 - 14 35 yo mum of 2... Her two sisters are also bridesmaids, I've yet to see them look anything less than tacky.. I asked what shoes did bride want us to wear ( I'm more than happy to buy my own) but no the bride wants us in stacked platform gladiator style heels... Some cheap and nasty version of a designer shoe she has seen.. If I was paying for the stuff myself I would say nope I'm not buying that but my hands are tied!!! My husband is laughing his *** off he thinks it's hilarious... Seriously if you have seen My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding this wedding could be an episode of that... My SIL is only a half step up from that!
