So, one of your best mates is getting married, and she asked you to be a bridesmaid. I bet you are excited and flattered. If you haven’t been a bridesmaid before, it can be a little intimidating and costly if you aren’t careful. Here are some of the many steps you can take to being the best bridesmaid on your friends special day.
A great thing you can do when it comes to being the best bridesmaid is being onto it. Talk to the other girls and coordinate as much as possible. The maid of honour usually has her hands full with helping the bride. Discuss accessories, shoes, and any other matching items, so all of you look fantastic.
Help the Maid of Honour
This topic brings me to another great thing you can do as a bridesmaid, help the maid of honour. The bride already has so much going on and looks to the maid of the honour for help. On the day, or even before, try to be there for her and help in any way you can.
Mindful of Your Consumption
So, when it comes to the special day, be conscious of two elements, food and alcohol. You want to make sure you are eating in abundance and drinking alcohol less. Use the day to have some champagne and load up on food and water. Once the music hits and the bar opens, water and food are the last things on your mind.
Understand When to Be Conscious of How You Look
What I mean by this is be aware of your surroundings. If you are getting your hair and makeup done by a stylist, have examples ready to go and try to be as minimalistic as possible. You want to be quick, so you aren’t taking up too much of their time. However, when it comes to taking pictures, make sure you run to your good side right at the beginning. The only time you don’t get a choice is when you are taking photos with the bride.
There are points of the day that can be stressful or tiresome. Overall, it’s so much fun to be a part of the special day. Take lots of selfies with your friends and family, dance, and enjoy yourself. Also, don’t be shy to sneak back into the room and grab some comfortable shoes to dance in without people noticing! When you have dancing shoes on and with your best girlfriends, you are ready for the night of your life!
