Bridesmaids can be a bride’s lifeline on the big day. These are the things your bridesmaids wish you knew before saying, “I do.”
what your bridesmaids wish you knew
Bridesmaids can be true lifelines when it comes to helping make your big day run both smoothly and efficiently. Who else can wrangle crazy wedding guests, help you choose the perfect wedding gown, and advise you when making important decisions before saying, “I do.” Your bridesmaids will also help you get ready for your wedding, wipe any happy tears, and help you celebrate all night long.
We know a thing or two about weddings—and have been in a few. Take it from us, these are the things your bridesmaids wish you knew and want to tell you.
- One dress does not fit all bridesmaids
We would love to be able to pick out our own styles, please.
- Trust us—we will not wear the dress again
But if it helps you sleep at night.
- Some of us don’t have unlimited budgets
Providing an estimate of how much being a bridesmaid will cost would be great and can save us some unexpected worries in the long run.
- Teacups & teddies?
Can you have two showers so I can get you a practical gift and fun gift?
- We are happy to help, but there is a limit
We are here for you, but friends, family, and planners can help, too.
- Think before you ask
What would you want as a bridesmaid?
- Rub my feet
OK, not really. But perhaps we can choose our own shoes, within reason?
That means best friends forever and we’re so happy to stand by your side—cue the happy tears.
