Bridesmaids- bad dresses on purpose?

when I got married I didn't have bridesmaids for many reasons.

but you hear so often that brides pick ugly bridesmaid's dresses to make them look better.

did anyone actually do that? pick a bad dress so they would look better in comparison?

  • I bet Pippa Middleton doesn't think so lol.


    Most of my bridesmaids were children so no such issues here.

  • I've worked in weddings where the brides deliberately chose bridesmaids dresses that were so appalling that people who looked directly at them were driven completely insane.

  • Nope- when I got married, I knew what color I wanted, but took all 4 of my bridesmaids to the bridal shop to let them work it out as to the style they would agree upon. It worked out well. :)

    were the bridesmaids still friends with her after that?
    why would they do that to friends for pete's sake?

  • I've told my brides maids the color. They will be buying the dress or wearing one they allready have. As long as it's bellow the knees the style is thier choice. I want us all to feel sexy and for them to really be able to wear the dresses again.

  • yes that's a very common cliche that the bridesmaids dresses are meant to be ugly. my 3 best friends are hot women and i made sure they looked hot in little black cocktail dresses. we all looked hot
