<h1>Choose bridesmaids VERY wisely.</h1>
"Choose bridesmaids wisely. Pick those who know how to put up with YOU and you know how to put up with them in intense situations. They could make the day more stressful or dramatic (alcohol, money, or lack of attention on them). <b>I could not imagine my kids looking at my wedding album and not knowing a bridesmaid, a person who I thought was my closest of close friend.</b> It is not worth the drama. Stick to sisters and childhood friends. I got lucky, but many friends did not." — Submitted by Jillian Breska (via Facebook)

<h1>And you can totally let them pick out their own dresses!</h1>
"Letting the bridesmaids pick out their own dresses is a decision I'm still very happy I made. They looked wonderful and there was no stress or grumbling over budgets. We made a lot of wedding party decisions based on that and it's something I think more couples should keep in mind. <b>No one needs a flask or another pair of earrings — cover half the cost of their hair or tux instead!</b>" — Submitted by Kelsea Tooley (via Facebook)
