Question for Brides: Do You Feel Pressure to Pick Hot Bridesmaids?

As I pore over featured wedding submissions to publish on our blog, I can't help but notice one thing. There's a blushing bride, a handsome groom, and a smokin' hot group of bridesmaids. This always seemed a bit counterintuitive to me (maybe it was that Bridezillas episode featuring an overwieght, unhappy bride who banned her groom's attractive little sis from the bridal party). Bur during a recent wedding meetup here in Chicago, a photographer shed light on what's driving the hot bridesmaids phenomenon... When the topic came up, this wedding photographer stated plainly, "I think brides feel pressure to choose an attractive bridal party." And why might that be? Fabulous featured weddings! Featured weddings are a fantastic source of inspiration (just check out the gorgeous real weddings we've published!), but many nearlyweds now aspire to have their own weddings featured. So, first things first- Do you dream of seeing your wedding published on a bridal blog or in print? If you answered yes to the question above, then we want to hear from you! Have any of your wedding planning decisions been altered, derailed or turned upside down because of your hope to be published? Editorial coverage of real weddings is no different than editorial coverage in all of our favorite fashion, fitness and lifestyle magazines- attractive sells, plain jane does not. So... is this hot bridesmaid trend a product of the proliferation of published real weddings? And is an attractive bridal party just one essential piece to getting your wedding published? We're dying to know, so brides, grooms and wedding pros, please share your thoughts below!
