Bridesmaids Bowing: Keeping Your Ladies Happy!

by - 21 January

 *This is a contributed post.

Your bridesmaids are going to be an integral part of your wedding day and the wedding preparations leading up to it. They’re going to stand by your side through shopping for your dress, finding the right lingerie, finding the flowers and even sitting up until midnight to help you put together your reception favour bags.

For this reason - and more - your bridesmaids deserve a little respect and pampering. They’re going to have their own lives to live outside of your wedding day. They’re going to be there for you throughout this process, so here are a few ways that you can be there for them, too.

Bride And Bridesmaids

Remember: They Have A Life!
Your bridesmaids are stood alongside you and are thrilled for this honour, but that doesn't mean that they’re going to be able to be there with you at your beck and call. Remember that they have their own schedules, their own jobs and their own kids, so you need to get together once or twice a month and talk through what you need. Only schedule things when everyone can make it - and they should respect that you’re giving them the choice of dates.

Give Them Independence Over Their Dresses
Bridesmaids are often stuffed into the ugliest dresses and forced to stand in them for the day. So, give your bridesmaids a choice of what to wear, and you can ensure that they are comfortable. Of course, if you want them to wear a specific colour, the colour periwinkle is a mixture of light blue and violet and will look beautiful as your theme. Give them shops and websites that they can use to shop online and get it right.

A Little Direction Doesn't Hurt
If you want them to have the last say over their look, you need to only give a little direction to their style choices. So, get them to come up with something and unless it really does stand out in a bad way against your perfect day, say yes. A little direction never hurt anyone either!

Don’t Forget The Pamper Bags
You need to make your girls feel as unique as possible! Pamper boxes with their wedding jewellery, a robe with “Bridesmaid” on the back, some smellies and a card of thanks for their help always go down well to make them feel special.
Personalize the thank you card by making it yourself. You can always download and use these free premium fonts to decorate the card and make it pretty.

Break The Ice
It’s rather possible that your bridesmaids won’t know each other if you are blending groups of friends. So, fix up some ice breakers so that you can get everyone to mingle well together. You want the activities for your hen night to be good fun, and you can only do that if everyone is having fun together.

Your bridesmaids deserve your attention, so give them a pamper and let them know that you are there to help them as much as they are there to support you. Have fun - you are getting married after all, and they are right there with you, cheering you on!
