The Right Way to Treat Your Bridesmaids

Sep 23, 2011

Some brides may view their bridesmaids as their little army of helpers. It’s best to remember, especially under stress that they are, first and foremost, your friends.
Good friends understand that as a bride you are under an enormous amount of pressure it – even when you turn into the dreaded bridezilla. However, you can hurt your friends’ feelings and possibly damage your relationship with them.
Here are some tips on the right way to treat your bridesmaids:
- When picking out dresses for your bridesmaids be sure to keep each person in mind. Not all styles and colors are flattering on everyone.
- Pick a color for the bridal shoes you would want them to wear and let the bridesmaids pick out their own style of shoes. After all they are the ones who have to wear them all day and possibly all night.
- Give them flip flips or slippers for the big day. This way if they do have shoes that are uncomfortable they can take them off for the rest of the evening.
- When choosing gifts for a gift bag, choose items they will like, not just you.
- Don’t overwhelm them with too many “to do’s”.
- Invite them along when going to dress shop.
- Purchase one or all accessories to match the bridesmaids dresses, like the earrings or purses, for your bridesmaids
- Pay to get their hair or make up done for the wedding day.
- Treat them to a night out or a night in with some wine and fun!
Most importantly remember to tell them “thank you” for being there for you during an important time in your life. By keeping these tips in mind your wedding will be a joyous event for both you and your bridesmaids!
