BLISSFUL BRIDESMAIDS WEDDING TIPS AND TRICKS
Your bridesmaids will be with you every step of the way. From dress shopping,
choosing wedding photographer , to cake testing, hen’s night and all the way up
to your big day. They’re doing a lot for you because they love you, so to make sure
that everyone is happy along the way, here are some tips to have the best bridesmaids.
1. Choose Carefully.
This is an important decision- don’t rush it. You might consider asking your best
friends, siblings or cousins, but whoever you decide to ask, make sure it’s not out
of guilt or obligation. You’ll want to have people who really want to be there for
you, it will make everything so much more special and enjoyable.
Be sure to introduce your bridesmaids to each other. They’ll be spending a lot of
time together and will all want to be involved in some decision making, so make
sure they’re all comfortable and confident in each other’s friendships. Make a
group chat on social media or text and start bonding!
3. Don’t Crowd the Calendar.
While it’s important to plan ahead for shopping trips, the bridal shower and hen’s
night – remember that your bridesmaids have jobs, families, and other
commitments too. Filling every weekend may quickly go from fun to annoying.
4. Make Them Feel Special.
Your bridesmaids need to be your VIPs at the wedding, so make sure they feel
that way. Give them a shout out in your speech, and make sure they have a
chance to let their hair down and party on with you.
5. Look After Your Friendship.
While your wedding may seem all consuming to you and your life, remember that
they still do have other things going on in their world. Make an effort to hang out
and talk to them about things other than the wedding.
6. Let Them Spoil You.
Even though you probably have some strong ideas about your hen’s night or
bridal shower, make sure you relax and let them take control and spoil you. This
is their chance to show you how much they appreciate being asked to be a
special part of your day. Enjoy your time being the bride and centre of attention.
7. Be Grateful.
Don’t forget to thank your bridesmaids at every step of the way. Write them a nice
card or buy them something small to show your appreciation; a piece of jewellery
to wear on the day, a massage voucher or a bottle of wine goes a long way.
Make them feel special.
