Now, with all the talk out there about potentially turning into a bridezilla, woman are freaking out and watching their attitudes more than they need to! The truth is, your bridesmaid’s can understand if you are acting a little crazy as the big day approaches, so what better way to help them survive your wrath than shower them with gifts and new opportunities.
There are five solid ways to impress your bridesmaid’s and help them understand the reign of terror that you have unleashed on everyone involved in the wedding, and here they are…
Switch It Up With Color Swatches
Before you go shopping for bridesmaid’s dresses, give them a color swatch that matches your wedding theme, that way they have a little leeway with picking. Plus, multi-colored dresses aren’t such a bad idea and they give your wedding party a little dimension. Now, I’m not saying you should let one pick green, the other hot pink, and another fire engine red, I’m talking more along the lines of different shades of blue, purple, green etc.
Take Care Of Their Feet
While it’s no surprise that your bridesmaid’s and you will be on your feet all night, make sure to pick out comfortable shoes for them to wear. Also, don’t make them go hiking through the wilderness (also known as grass) because the last thing you need to deal with is a broken ankle. So, keep the picture’s simple to pose in and maybe when the reception rolls around, invest in some cute flip flops to give the girls to take a little pressure off their heels.
Go On A Girls Day Out
Sometime’s bridal parties are a big mismatch of family member’s that have never met each other or never had the opportunity to grow closer. So, before the big day, plan some outings like lunch dates or even a girl’s night out. Plus, having all your bridesmaid’s getting along is basically a dream.
Warn Them Of Creepy Groomsmen
There is always that one weird cousin of the groom who is in your bridal party well, it is super important to warn your bridesmaid’s of that weird cousin and any other creepy groomsmen. However, if some of your bridesmaid’s are single, and there are some handsome bachelor’s standing by your future husband in nice tuxedos, help a girl out. You never know, maybe you’re a matchmaker and you’ll be watching her throw the bouquet next time!
The Bachelorette Party – Dun Dun Dun
Okay, now this is where a lot of fights tend to break out typically, over the bride being uncomfortable with the future festivities. So, if you think your bridesmaid’s are going to drag you to a strip club, then drop subtle hints on how that would make you uncomfortable – they’ll understand. Also, if you don’t want to seem like you’re complaining, then drop hints about what you might like to do before they start really getting into the party planning.
Now, those are some sure fire ways to make your bridesmaid’s happy leading up to and on your big day. Remember, this is a life celebration so, go and enjoy it – stress free!
