So, I know plenty of you women out there were in a wedding or two. How about those dreaded bridesmaid gowns? You know you tell the bride you like them, but deep down, you think to yourself, what is she thinking... We got our dresses, and shoes. There is a slight possibility I will be able to walk down the aisle without falling. haha. I am not a heel woman! And I made that clear upon becoming a bridesmaid, but, still, we got heels. So, I will be 5 months pregnant and trying to walk in heels. How many of you have ever seen a bridesmaid fall walking down the aisle? Would you laugh upon seeing it? Tell the truth..... haha

I would make a nervous laugh, as I do in such situations. I have been in my sister's and my brother's weddings. My sister's I helped picked out the dress, and loved it (simple and cheap and beautiful!). My sister-in-law picked out the dresses for us, and I loved that one too! It was fitted and long, even with a tiny train. I hope I have somewhere fancy enough to wear that dress again! I was lucky in that both let us pick out our own shoes as long as they were in color, and I repaid by doing the same. Making everyone wear the same shoes is really bordering on bride-zilla! Especially if it is a long dress where no one can see the shoes anyway. Good luck, and walk carefully!

Thanks! You know, when I got married, I did it small. And I let the maid of honor (only one other female in my wedding) pick out what she wanted to wear. She asked me about it, and I told her, I am not telling you what to buy. This is what my dress looks like, you can get anything you like as long as this is not it! haha....I am easy to work with.

Well I am going to be a bridesmaid in my friends wedding (who has posted a little bit on here) and she is letting all the bridesmaids that are available to give input. I guess brides should decide what they would be ok wearing before having their maids wear it. When I got married I really did like the dresses I picked out.. so much that I may borrow my Moms (she was the MOH) some day.
