Well, being a bridesmaid is a big job to do for your best girl. As a proud member of the bridal party there are things to keep in mind as you fulfill your duties. You must be ready to do whatever she needs to make her dream wedding day come true. Take not of these bridal party do’s and don’ts.
DO wear any bridesmaids dress she wants you to wear. And, make sure to wear that dress with a smile on your face. We suggest making an appointment with our bridesmaids stylists at Anglo Couture, so you won’t have to have a fake that smile on your face when you wear your bridesmaids dress. We have the most stylish and fashion forward bridesmaids dresses around.
DO your best to get along with the other bridesmaids. Essentially, resist the temptation to get catty or back backbiting like us girls have a tendency to do. Yes, there might be a moment or two when you need to put an attention seeking bridesmaid in her place, but there are ways to do that with style and grace.
DO throw your girl an amazing bachelorette party. Make sure to keep her unique personality in mind when throwing her the shin dig. If she would love a dirty bachelorette, then go for it, but if your girl is a little shy, think of some other bonding activities other than going to night clubs.
DO have fun at the wedding, but make sure to keep it classy. Remember, you are a lady and your behavior reflects on the bride. It’s okay to have a few drinks or playfully flirt with that cute and single groomsman across the aisle, but just make sure you can still attend to the bride‘s needs.
Now, for the don’ts…
DON’T be cheap. Understand that being a bridesmaid comes along with a certain financial responsibility. If you can’t budget the money to pay for your own dress and help out with the bachelorette party, make sure to tell the bride that before you say, “yes” to being her bridesmaid.
DON’T be competitive with the other bridesmaids or the bride. This wedding is not about you, but about the happy couple. Also, remember that someone else’s success or happiness shouldn’t affect your own.
DON’T be overly opinionated if you go along with the bride to her appointments. Recognize that the bride has a different style than you and give her feedback that would help her to best represent her own personality on her wedding day. This of course applies to the wedding dress appointments, but also to any other appointments for wedding planning that you might tag along with her to.
Last, but not least, DON’T go any further than the Anglo Couture flagship salon for all your bridesmaids needs. We offer the latest fashions in bridesmaids dresses, customizable accessories for the bridesmaids, as well as top notch alterations for all the girls.
Remember, this weekend, all bridal parties with 3 or more girls will receive 10% off their bridesmaids dresses! To make your bridesmaids appointment today, call 727.526.5800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
