Hi everyone! How did you all choose how your bridesmaids should wear their hair? Did everyone wear it differently or all the same style? I need ideas!

    I'm letting them choose. That way they can all be comfortable.

    I didn't dictate that but I do sort of see why some do aha because my moh decided to get one kind of similar to mine so I think it would've been nice if it was more differentiated.

    Every wedding I've been in we chose our own style. I only have a MOH but she can do whatever. It's not important.

    I let them choose whatever dress they wanted (in a given color), so I'm letting them choose what to do with their hair as well. I offered to pay half of hair costs if they want their hair professionally done, or they can do it themselves. I might jokingly say to not match me, but I don't think they would anyways.

    All of my girls are choosing their own hairstyles, I wasn't requiring anything from them.

    I am not paying so letting them choose. Not everyone will be comfortable and look the same with the same hair style.

    I told mine I didn't care if they did updos or a half-up, half-down deal. They can have it all down so long as the front is pinned back. I just want to be sure their faces and dresses can be seen!

    I'm paying for their hair to be done. I told them I don't care what kind of hair style they have.

    I let them choose how they wanted to do it. I am not a fan of the "cookie cutter" look.

    You don't get to dictate hairstyle. They will find something they love and are comfortable with!

    Actually you can dictate how you would like your bridesmaids hairstyle to look for your wedding, especially if you’re doing for a certain look and don’t want anyone to show up looking any kind of way. I have seen many weddings where all of the bridesmaids have the same hairstyle, it is a “thing”. Thank you

    Are you paying? Then you can maybe give suggestions, but you still shouldn't tell people what do with their hair, that's super personal. If you're not paying, you dont' get a say at all!

    Are you paying for my wedding? First of all I didn't say i was requiring my bridesmaids to wear the same hairstyle but i have seen weddings (especially African Americans) where they all have. It is simply a preference from the bride, the same as a telling them what shoes and bridesmaid dresses to wear. Don't worry you're not in my wedding so you wont be required to do so. Lol Have a good night

    I'm simply saying that your BM's would appreciate not having to look like clones. Also, if you're requiring the same shoes/jewelry/anything but the dress it's definitely something you should be paying for. Good luck with planning.
