Best of {Not So} Single Girl's Bridesmaid Woes: "Just Pick Your Own Dress"

 **This post was originally published 10/2/12**

I hate it when a Bride says "Just pick your own dress"

At some point, my BFF Bride Amy decided that her bridesmaid styles are all just way too different and no one dress would be good for all of us. I completely understand and respect this, but now I have dilemma...I have to go find a blush dress that looks good on me AND fits the style of the wedding AND fits the taste of Amy, because, hell its still her wedding and even if I have free reign of dress styles, I would obviously want her final approval (and I assume she'd want the final approval as well). 

Amy is like, really, stylish. She makes a white v-neck t-shirt look like a million bucks and can wear a pair of skinny jeans better than anyone I know. As for me, I have to try really hard to be stylish. I need sequins and leopard print and really high heels and all that jazz or I just can't even begin to look sub par. Amy, on the other hand, can go out looking effortless and gorgeous without all the tacky details I love and embrace. Where can I find a bridemaid dress that will make both of us happy?

Let's have a look at a few of my original ideas:

You had a good laugh. I know you did. Let's be real...none of those are REALLY my style at all, so we can all rest assured that I won't be relying on bows and ruffles to make my Maid of Honor title proud.

Anyways, most bridesmaids feel opposite of me. They would love to just go out and pick whatever they want to wear, but I'm not that way. I mean, I'll do it gladly, but I would like it much better if the bride told me what to wear, where to try it on and I can hand over my credit card and order it. I just feel like, hell, I don't want to disappoint. I want to wear something that the bride likes me in and I don't want her to be nice and let me look like a frickin' hoochie because she didn't want hurt my feelings or tell me that the dress I choose doesn't match the style she's going for on her wedding. 

I'm sure that everything with be fine with Amy's bridesmaid dress and I've found a couple of acceptable candidates already, although I have some time. I'm really just most worried with disappointing her with what I pick. Its a tough situation because she's my best friend and I want her wedding to be everything she wants it to be, without worrying if her bridesmaid's dresses are going to be a hot mess. I love her and the last thing I'd want to do is add MORE stress to her wedding saturated brain than already exists.

Opinions? Should all bridesmaids match? Should a bride have the final say? 


  1. Each engaged girls has different taste for their bridesmaid dress and their wedding dress. They have to very sure to choosing their wedding dress. In order to search the dress vendors easily using the wedding planner app for iPhone will be useful at the time of wedding shopping.

  2. I've always dreamed of having a gold Wedding dress. This dress is stunning, unique and has beautiful design.. Beautifully photographed too!
