Why Are Bridesmaids Dressed Alike?

In more superstitious times, the bride and groom were surrounded by friends of similar ages, dressed in similar attire, as a way of confusing evil demons. This way the demons could not find the real bride and groom and bring them bad luck. Today’s bridesmaids dress alike, as do the groomsmen, as it is a way of confusing any who would wish the couple ill luck. This could also be why it is a tradition for the bridesmaids to carry bouquets that are somewhat similar to the bride’s.

Here are some of our bride/bridesmaid bouquets from this past weekend!

Happy Wedding Wednesday from Billy Heroman’s!
