Are you having Bridesmaids?

Just wanted to see how many of you are doing semi-trad or trad Bridesmaids?
I am doing 4 BM and my Groom has 2 GM...
Post their BM dresses too!

    We are not having any. With our crazy Elvis wedding, we figured the two of us are enough.

    I'm having 5!! I felt like it was too many for a Vegas wedding, but then I was like EFF it! These people are too close to me to cut them out for no reason.

    They are each getting their own black dress. My little sister wants to wear this, but none of us can get over the fact that she looks about 20 instead of 15!

    I'm having 2. My little sister and my best friend.

    My sister likes this dress:
    but it will be in cherry w/ black trim



    My best friend is a slacker and hasn't picked out a dress yet. As long as the two of them end up in the same color, I don't care.

    They bought this but in floor length.

    OMG I saw this one and suggested it to the girls, but they chose another one.  I love that it has multiple colors to choose from.

    My ceremony package says I can have up to 5 on each side so I will only have 4 and the FI will have 4 or 5.  :-)

    Thank you Charity!  We actually weren't originally going to do that - we originally thought the dress that she chose came in the same dark purple but found out afterwards that it didn't.  That was the only dress that she really liked so we went with the lavender instead.

    @downtown - I love that BM dress!

    We're having 5 BMs and 6 GMs, I had 6 BMs but one had to go and get pregnant again, and she's just flaky and would have probably backed out anyways.

    Here's their dress, but the grey is lighter than the picture looks:

    I had 6 girls stand up with me and I wouldn't change it for the world. I was so happy I had them with me on my big day.

    No attendants - just us. 

    I'm the quintessential anti-bride and already totally intimidated by the whole wedding dress thing, so the thought of having to pick out more ensembles scares the crap out of me!  Lord help me when I start shopping next month...Surprised

    We will be having 6 on each side. My maid of honor is my big sister and my forever soulmate! My bridesmaids are my FI's sister, my closest cousin, and 3 of my lifetime friends. I can't wait have them all stay the night at my house the day before.... It will be like a grown up slumber party :) I know it's far away, but I'm still crazy excited!!!!!!

    Since they are all coming from different places I'm going to have them pick out their own above the knee dresses from David's Bridal in our colors.

    We're having 4 on each side. I can't seam to load my planning bio to show a pic but it's in there. To be honest I'm not a fan of my bridesmaid dresses but they fit my budget and by the time they came in it was too late to change them.

    I had 3 bm and gm, flower girl and ring bearer stand up for us. My oldest sis was moh and I couldn't leave my youngest and his sis out of it. Although I would of liked to leave his out. She's nothing but DRAMA!! I couldn't be mean like that. Then she almost backed out 3 days before we left. Nice huh! They each picked out their own style Belsoie dress. They only had to be black, chiffon, and tea length.

    Well you did a great job with the flowers to tie it all together!  Sometimes misshaps turn into such a great thing! Love it!

    neither of us are having attendants - I grew apart from most of my friends and his best friend may or may not be able to attend.

    I think I am just going to have a MOH, haven't made any final decisions though. And I will let her/them (if I have more) pick their own black dresses.
