Help Your Bridesmaid s Feel Special on Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day is all about you and your love. The happy couple is at the center of everyone’s attention and the entire ceremony is there to celebrate their love and the decision to unite in marriage. However, all good brides know that the love and the relationship that is being crowned with the marriage are turning out to be so perfect with the help of their best friends. Those are those ladies that witnessed your happy times, and those who comforted you through the rough patches of your relationships. Just like some guardian angels of your relationship, your friends are your bridesmaids at your wedding, so they deserve to feel special.
Share the Spotlight of Your Bridal Party with Them
Always allow a plus one for your bridesmaids. Make sure that they are mentioned on your wedding website, if you are making one, or on your guest list. Call out their names during the ceremony or celebration and do your best that everybody knows them and know that they are important to you. They are not your servants for a day, but your support and your most trusted friends, so treat them as such.
Include Them into the Decision Making Process
Your friends will have to wear a dress and they will have to endure the entire day in it and numerous photo taking moments. Therefore, it is only fair to include them into the decision making process when it comes to their dresses. Not all dresses look flattering on everybody, so allow them to have their say. Their bridesmaid dresses should complement yours, but do not insist on something that they do not really like. This, of course, includes the cut of the dress, the accessories and colors.
Show them Love by Giving Cute Gifts
Your bridesmaids will definitely remember your wedding, but it would be nice if they remembered it also by something cute and special that you prepared for them. A small gift is a token of your appreciation of their friendship. Also, it shows that you took the time to think about them while planning your wedding. It will make them feel loved and cared for. Personalize the gifts and do not just leave it for the last day. Let the gift celebrate the relationship that you have with each and every one of them. A nice card with some meaningful words is also a great idea.
Prepare Something Special for Your Bachelorette Party
It is very likely that your friends will organize a bachelorette’s party. Even if you are not a big fan of what they come up with, make sure to smile, be thankful and enjoy yourself to the fullest. However, do not allow for them to do all the pampering, when it comes to your bachelorette’s party. If it is a day at a spa, you throw in manicure for everybody. If you are having a brunch, bring a nice cake. Show that you appreciate their effort and have a surprise for them, as well.
Your bridesmaids are about to put in some serious effort, time and money to help you make your perfect day, truly perfect. They deserve for their efforts to be noted and they will be glad to feel that you acknowledge their love. Keep in mind that they also have a life besides your wedding, so do your best not to turn into a bridezilla. Also, one of the best things you can do before the wedding – take the time to talk about other things with them, beside your wedding. It will be good for them and it will be good for you.
