03 Apr How To Ace Your Job As A Bridesmaid
Being picked to be a bridesmaid for a friend or family member is a real honour.
After all, it means that the bride thinks that you are a truly special lady in her life.
However, being a bridesmaid can be a bit scary and you are going to want to get everything right to make sure that the bride has the best day ever.
To help squash those nerves, we have put together our guide on how to ace being a bridesmaid.
Whether it is in the run up or on the big day itself.
Know what the bride needs from you
The first step on the path to being the ultimate bridesmaid is with the bride.
Some brides like their bridesmaids to be involved right from the go get, others like them to only help when asked.
It is important to have a chat right at the beginning to ascertain how much help she needs from you and when she is going to expect you to step in or leave her to it.
Get to know the other bridesmaids
In an ideal world, all of the bridesmaids will know each other and be comfortable working together to come up with plans.
However, for most weddings, there is likely to be one or two of the bridesmaids that don’t know the others too well.
A good bridesmaid will be able to push this to the side and do her best to get to know the others, working together as the perfect team in no time at all.
Be tactful with your opinion
One of the hardest things to master when you are a bridesmaid is being able to give your opinion or something tactfully.
The bride will often ask for your thoughts on a particular aspect of the wedding day, because she trusts you to tell the truth.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you speak your mind without even thinking of how it may come out.
Consider her feelings, consider what it is that she is asking you and formulate your reply in a way that is going to get your point across, without completely devastating her.
Be there when she needs you, even just to talk
A bridesmaid should never neglect her bride, particularly on the run up to the wedding day when everything is likely to be a little on the stressful side.
Make sure that you are there, even if it is just to listen to her talk.
There is a good chance that all she will need is to sound off in order to make herself feel a whole lot better.
Feeling much readier to face your job as a bridesmaid now?
We hope so.
In fact, we hope that with our help you not only feel ready to be a bridesmaid, but you feel ready to be the very best bridesmaid ever.
Something that we are sure that your bride will appreciate.
