Brides guide to bridesmaids is to complement the bride and ensure the wedding day is a huge success.

Bridesmaids play a vital role in the wedding process by providing support and advice to the bride in the lead up to the wedding day. Many bridesmaids today play an active role in assisting the bride.

The history of the bridesmaid first evolved from the early Roman times where bridesmaids formed a bridal protective shield to accompany the bride on the way to the groom’s village. The role of bridesmaids varies greatly across cultures, religions and time periods.

Who to choose as your bridesmaids?

As a bride it is essential to consider what attributes you would value for your bridesmaids and avoid drama at all costs. As a bride you will have enough on your plate without having to deal with a difficult bridesmaid.

Select people who you feel closest to and who mean the most to you, this could include family members or lifelong friends. You may have to consider family over friends to reduce the risk of family politics.

Choosing your bridesmaids is about who you want to stand beside you when you pledge your life to your partner. They should be the people in your life who support your marriage throughout your life in the good times and the bad.

Finally, select responsible and reliable bridesmaids who you know will be there for you leading up to and on your wedding day.

“Popping the question” to your potential Bridesmaid

There is no hard and fast rule on how you should ask someone to be your bridesmaid, it may depend on the type of relationship you have with that person or the style of wedding you plan on having.

Some brides simply “pop the question” by phone conversation or send a card or note in the mail. Other ways may include arranging a special lunch or dinner. There is also an abundance of more creative and elaborate ways using novelty gifts, check out Pinterest or visit here

Make sure you discuss upfront with your bridesmaids their financial responsibility in taking on the role to ensure there are no misunderstandings. Where possible I would recommend reducing financial obligations to alleviate any financial strain.
