I am planning on paying for bridesmaids dresses for all the girls, but I would really like if they wore mismatched dresses. However, I have a few friends that would panic and pester me if I made them make the decision, while some other girls would come up with something fabulous.
How do I present this idea to them? Do I offer to select the dress if they don’t want to? And how do I go about paying for the dresses when they are shopping for theirs. My best idea is to purchase some great dresses that I like and have the girls pick out which ones they want to wear and make a little party of it.
I have never been in or heard of a situation where the bride pays for the dresses the girls choose, so I would love to hear your thoughts!
Take everyone shopping. Make a party of that.
There is no way in hell you can just go out and buy an assortment of "great dresses" that will fit/please all your ladies. UNLESS THEY ARE MODELS? I am so confused.
But kudos to you for being rad!
