Wedding season is slowly creeping upon us, and that crucial role of being your girlfriend’s bridesmaid can be quite EXCITING yet DAUNTING! Trust me I know, I have been a bridesmaid a couple of times over (prior to that I was a flower girl for more times than I can count – lets just say My Mother enjoyed pimping her daughter out lol)
So what qualities does one need for this
1. Yes Man aka Tart is your new best friend
Its best to swallow a pill than to blurt out how much you hate her dress or the decor colours, from experience I have learnt to accept what ever decisions the bride decides on, this is not to say i would not give my input, i will but with caution. If she insists, them I’m game. Every bride has an idea of what her wedding day should/will look like, no one wants or would accept her colourful picture painted all over with black crayon. Thread with caution Ladies!
Things do not always go according to plan, therefore you would need to be the calming force for the bride throughout the planning process.
3. Team work
Most times, the bridal party are from different friendship groups or countries and what not with the Bride being the only connection, its a great way to meet new girlfriends (or better yet another bridesmaid offer in the horizon if you play your card right lol) – so it is important that you all get along or at least pretend to!
Stay connected, create a group – whats app, bbm, facebook, whatever works for everyone and get the plans going with everyone involved.
4. Stay alert at all times
Bridesmaid aka Personal Assistant role – If you need to redo her lipstick or touch up her makeup, or get that annoying relative far from the bride as possible, be ready to step in what ever role you are needed.
5. Love your Bridesmaid Dress
You may be a fashionista in your own right, but darling do not expect to be on the
best dressed list, before you run off in a diva fit, remember that it is your best friend’s day, so its all about her!
