Hello, and welcome back,
This topic makes me very happy, emotional, and glad for all my bridesmaids. It always brings me to tears when I think about what my Bridesmaids have done for me the last month before the wedding, never imagined it and never felt so loved by my friends and family like this. I have many tips for this topic but every girl is different when it comes to choosing her party, I want to tell all the Brides that to choose someone who you know will be there for every step of the way, who you trust, who has been there through bad and good times, and mostly someone who will take a lot of stress that is on you.
Definition of a Bridesmaid is a girl or woman who accompanies a bride on her wedding day.
How to choose your bridemaid and maid of honour?
- Choosing: Choose someone who’s been with you the whole ride, someone who’s positive, not picky about everything, and also someone creative to help you with a lot of things. I ran through some issues after I chose my maid of honour and bridesmaids everything was perfect, except 2 months before the wedding when my Fiancé Priest said Sisters are not allowed to be Maid of Honours in our church, it broke my heart, long story short I decided to make my cousin as my maid of honour. Br Prepared for situations like this, have plan B.
Let’s begin with the steps, after you chose your bridesmaids.
- Dresses: Bridesmaids dresses look simple looking yet glamours. You are the bride you know your wedding more than any of the girls, so choose the dress you like, but that doesn’t mean you have to choose a dress that none of them are comfortable wearing. it’s hard to not be a bridezilla but trust me, when your girls are happy with you the whole wedding will be positive and no complains.
- Their concerns: ask them what they like their dresses to be like, what you want their dress to be like, some like it showy, some don’t, covered arms, sleeveless, long, short, etc.. so what I did was I made a list of the likes and hates, and tries to see what is the one thing they all like their dress to look like.
- Listen: have an open mind to their ideas as well, at the end of the day, they know you and their ideas might be a great help to you in planning.
- Trust: Give them a task to do and help you that’s why they are your “maids”. Trust their instinct; let them surprise you on what they can do for you.
Hopefully that gives you an idea on who you will be picking for your party and who will stand with you as you say “I DO”.
