A Quick And Easy Guide To Become The Best Bridesmaid!

Large

Being bestowed bridesmaid duty is one of the greatest honour a girl can experience. It’s a right of passage, your best friend is getting married and she wants you to be with her that day, but not just as another guest, as a bridesmaid to stand with her, help her with the things she might need, and of course most of all be with her in the pictures. It’s truly something to be cherished, which is why we made a list on how to be the best bridesmaid ever. 

Keep Your Calendar Free

It’s unrealistic for a bride to expect you will drop everything at the touch of a button or call, and run to her when she needs you, but it’s also wise not to make any big plans in case she needs you. Whether it’s for dress shopping, cake tasting, or venue scouting, sometimes the bride wants some moral support and helpful decision making when planning for the big day, and who better to trust than her bridesmaid. We’re not saying quite your job and be on call, but it’s probably best to schedule out any trips and prioritise the bride in your free time during this period. 

Be A Calming Tide 

The most important thing in being a bridesmaid is to be chill. No one wants to be panicked on the day, especially the bride, and she will probably be nervous and panicked either way, so you adding on to that is the last thing she needs. Instead be relaxed, reassuring, and above all a problem solver. Wrong shade of lipstick? Find the right one. Bride needs help touching up? You're already on your way to the room with her getting everything she needs for a quick touch up. It’s important to really always be cool, and keep the attitude calm and collected.

Comfort Is Key 

This is more for you than for anyone else, you may not have much of a choice with the dress or the cut and colour, but you do have a choice with the comfort. We recommend ditching the sultry long heels that look great but are terrible to walk in because we regret to inform you that you will be standing the entire day. In fact, you are lucky if you end up just standing and not running back and forth making sure everything is good and happy. So of course we recommend comfortable shoes, comfortable undergarments, and a laid back attitude to get you through the day. 

Final Notes

The most important thing to remember is just to be there for the bride and try to be as helpful as possible. All smiles and positivity because this is a big moment for her, and to be the best bridesmaid just try to be the best friend. Also always have blotting paper, lipstick, and perfume on you at all times because those are your saving grace items that day!
