Many women will begin to stress once they receive their invitation for being in the bridal party, but there is no reason to stress because there are so many amazing reasons as to why being a bridesmaid is the best offer ever. Yes, it can end up being a little pricey and you may have to tap into your savings a little bit – depending on the style of the bride – but it’s all worth it from the moment you’re getting pampered before the nuptials, to dancing your shoes off at the reception.
So, with that being said – here are FOUR awesome reasons to say “YES!” to being a bridesmaid,
You Seal Your Friendship Status
Nothing will seal a friendship more than supporting your best friend as she walks down the aisle. This is one of, if not THE biggest day of her life and she wants you to be a part of it. Yes, she may ask you to spend money on travel, attire, and gifts, but she wants you to be a part of it all, from start to finish. Being a part of her big day is way better than staying out of the loop until the actual day of the wedding.
More Photos To Collect For Social Media
Obviously, social media is running society today – and having the right pictures is very important. Lucky for you, your best friend’s wedding will probably have a professional photographer who will most likely take some of the best photos you have ever seen of yourself. Plus, the photos are one thing that you won’t have to pay for! Who doesn’t want professional photos taken of them – free of charge?
Your Attire Is Like A VIP Pass
You are obviously a very important person at the wedding, which basically means you are VIP. How do people know you’re VIP? Well, it’s because you’re wearing the dress! The bridesmaid’s dresses are a huge ticket and other than the happy couple, you’re the next in line and the whole reception is basically centered on the newlyweds and the wedding party.
You Get To Avoid Awkward Seating
Being in the bridal party means that you are guaranteed to have one of the best seats in the house. By the time of the reception, you have probably become decently close with the rest of the bridesmaids, if they aren’t already your friends. So, that automatically eliminates having to make that call to the bride beforehand to make sure you’re not sitting next to one of her future husbands weird uncles – because there’s always that one weird family member.
So, when your best friend proposes that you be in her wedding party – accept the invitation because you get to witness something not everyone gets to see!
