How many do/did you have? Total, 7


What are their age ranges? Most of the girls are around my age (I was 30 when I got married) so it was 28-32 at the time. However, DH's cousin was my seventh girl, and she was just 21


What kind of dresses? Short? Long? Short, pink (some with gold accents)


Do they all match? Different necklines for each


Have you gotten them gifts yet? If so, what? Silk jewelry bags with their names embroided, necklaces, little bags of lotions, glosses, etc.


What is your favorite thing about each of them? They are so fun, sweet, and loyal. DH and I are both only children, so there were no sisters to include. These girls are basically the next-closest thing <3

How many do/did you have?  Four BMs and one MOH


What are their age ranges? I was actually the youngest.  They were all 24-29


What kind of dresses? Short? Long? What color? Short (knee length) in Pantone Meadow


Do they all match? All of their dresses matched but I let them wear their own nude shoes.  Surprisingly they all picked shoes that looked very similar to each others'.


Have you gotten them gifts yet? If so, what?  I got them a whole TON of stuff:  hair done for the wedding day, necklace and earrings, tote bag, hand-painted wine glass, hanger with their name on it, Bath and Body Works goodies...I think that's it. 


What is your favorite thing about each of them?  They were all about making me happy.  Not once did any of them complain about anything! They truly made sure I was well taken care of and that nothing took away from my experience.  I think it helped that most of them were already married, so they had been through it before and knew how to be there for me.  I was sooo so lucky to have them and can't imagine having better friends there beside me. 


2 were my SILS, 1 was my cousin, 1 was my best friend from high school, and 1 was my best work friend.

What are their age ranges? 23, 24, 27


What kind of dresses? Short? Long? What color? Long chiffon in a royal blue with ivory accents


Do they all match? The colors match but I am letting them choose their own style.

What is your favorite thing about each of them? My sister-in-law is fantastic, she is everything I have wanted in my own sister.  FI's sister-in-law I got to know a bit more personally lately and she is much more down to earth than I first thought.  She is very upfront and I love that.  My best friend is funny and sweet.

How many do/did you have? No bridesmaids, but I guess (2), just 1 Maid of Honor and 1 Matron of Honor.  I felt that I was too old in my life to be dealing w/everyone's opinions so kept small and simple. 


What are their age ranges? One is 35, the other 36. Wow how time flies!


What kind of dresses? Short? Long? What color? Long, not sure yet, I wanted black but my FI is not feeling that so either pale yellow....this is open not sure right now but they are both size 4's so should be easy to find something.


Do they all match? Yes


Have you gotten them gifts yet? If so, what? No, but it's got to be something good, nothing cheesy.  I want to go all out for them, they are not sparing their time or dedication to making me happy, hard to find friends like that so something nice for sure. Both love lingerie so maybe something along that line and spa certificate but not sure yet, just some thoughts.


What is your favorite thing about each of them? I love them to pieces, my relationship with both of them have been nothing but loving even through the good and bad times. Looking back over the past 15 years, if me and these ladies have a disagreement which has been few, we move on without much problems, drama free. I originally selected my sister but she felt like she had too much going on and my cousin the same, we are close.

I had 4 bms


ages ranging from 24-30


They had deep red dresses


They did not match, I let them choose


I bought them all a makeup kit, with lipgloss, eye shadow, and blush. I also bought them matching nail polish and I bought their wedding jewelry, which was a pair of long, dangly gold earrings and a wide, gold cuff bracelet.


My older sister KATRINA keeps us all in line (she thinks she's the mom), my little sis KAY KAY will say ANYTHING, she keeps us laughing, my cousin BETTY is super sweet and always wants to help, my best friend LYNN does not want to do any work, but she will pay for stuff.

Do they all match? yes

What is your favorite thing about each of them? i had suchhh a hard time choosing BMs because i love all of my girls! my MOH is my cousin & bff, so that was easy.  2 of my BMs i have known since elementary school and they have been there for me through everything, even when we "grew up" and apart, we always made it a point to make sure everything was good in each others lives! and my last BM i have only known for about 4 years, but for me, she was just somebody who i instantly felt like i had known forever! she is the female version of my future hubby ;)
