The Cons Of Having A Bridesmaid

Who would you ask? Is there anybody you'll upset by not asking them? How would you choose between two close friends?

We think you need to let your bridesmaid wear a frock she likes instead of choose it on her. Although you could offer her a selection of colors and styles to select from.

She could announce she's pregnant and also the baby might be due before your big day - so you may not be able to rely on her (Dessy has some good maternity bridesmiad gowns though.)

You'll need to ensure you've chosen somebody organised and calm - a nervous bridesmaid could wind you up making things more stressful

You probably must buy your prom dress shops on her or at least contribute. So that's an expense for you personally.

You're also likely to have to purchase a bridesmaid gift from your budget (but take it from us, she'll have earned it!)

You will dsicover your bridesmaid being negative about your dress, your venue, the man you've selected to marry. In which case, we believe that you've probably chosen the incorrect girl to begin with.

What would you think? Do you think using a bridesmaid is essential? Did you manage without? Your thoughts, please!

Don't worry in case your bridesmaid springs a surprise you by suggesting she's pregnant. Take a look at some maternity bridesmiad gowns like this Alfred Sung M423 style which comes inside a rainbow of colors.
