If you all are like me, I chose my very dear best friends to be bridesmaids in my wedding. Ten best friends to be exact! They are all so special to me and each one of them holds a very special and unique place in my heart. They have all been there for me through various parts of my life. My maid of honor is my sister. She has seen me through thick and thin, heartbreak, loss of loved ones, and all the exciting moments in my life. She is a one of a kind and I am so proud to have her as my sister.
One issue that I think every bride considers when choosing her bridesmaid gowns is whether the dress will look great on all the bridesmaids. I’m a bride and I want my friends to all feel and look stunning in their bridesmaid dresses. This is why I decided to include them all in the decision making process! Every woman is a different shape and size. This is also true for myself and all of my bridesmaids. We considered that when choosing our bridesmaid gown. There was another issue, all of my ladies are scattered all over the U.S. Some are in Georgia, some are in Tennessee, one in Boston, one in Alaska, and one in Washington. So, with the technology today, we have all stayed in contact, communicated, and chatted through email and text message. It was the only way to get ten women on the same page! It has worked out beautifully for us. I am sure that other brides out there did what was best for them as well.
My bridesmaids have managed to plan my shower and coordinate my bachelorette party all through email and text message. I know it’s not very personal but, it has been the easiest way to communicate with all of us scattered throughout this country.
Was your bridal party a range of sizes? Did/do they live in multiple cities?
