Will you be my bridesmaid?

Thursday, 28th March, 2019 9:04am

Having been a bridesmaid to her best friend and currently playing the role of maid of honour for her sister’s wedding, Edelle Notte from Cinderella’s Closet has some tips to become the best bridesmaid a bride could possibly have!

You said yes

 Celebrate by having lunch/dinner with the lucky bride and groom


 Organise a ‘bride tribe’ night with the other bridesmaids


 Set up a Facebook group with the bride and another one with just bridesmaids where you can send inspiration, ideas and photographs

The hen

 You and the other bridesmaids need to make joint decisions and share the work equally


 Cater the events to the bride, not the hen party


 Keep the budget as low as possible

The big day

 Wear comfortable shoes only


 If you don’t like your dress? Suck it up!


 No getting too drunk or being hangover


 Google and pack a ‘survival kit’


 Get used to your photo being taken. Your cheeks will hurt but no complaining


 Stay with your bride until the very last minute of celebrations


Tips for you

 Plan a personal gift. A winner in that department is a memory jar. Get guests to write a fun or nice memory of the bride and groom. A thoughtful present for the newlyweds to enjoy afterwards


 Manage your money. Weddings are expensive so budget and save in advance


 Photograph everything. Afterwards create an album of amazing memories
