Brides Don’t Be Bossy With Your Bridesmaids
Bridesmaids & Groomsmen at Bahamas Wedding
Bridal Guide magazine has posted it’s “Top 7 Wedding Don’ts,” – a list of guidelines for brides as they go about planning their dream wedding.
And as we celebrate Bridesmaids we like number 4 on the list – “Don’t be bossy with your bridesmaids”
The list is a clear indication of some of the common mistakes brides make and believe it or not one of those mistakes is being bossy with their bridesmaids.
Bridal Guide says “some brides ask (or worse, demand) far more: They expect their bridesmaids to shell out for needlessly expensive outfits, to run endless errands, to wear their hair just so, to attend (and buy gifts for) countless all-for-you parties.”
And caution that as a bride you don’t want to be this way but instead sensitive to your bridesmaids’ feeling while considering yourself in their shoes.
Remembering that your bridesmaids are there to stand up for you as you take your vows, “to act as witnesses to this solemn event.”
And “these are your sisters, cousins, best friends, future in-laws, and there’s something sort of sweet about the way they gather around you, wearing finery you picked out, helping you pin up your bustle, holding your flowers.”
They want to be there for you and excited that you have asked them to play such an important role for you. Organizing various events connected with the wedding and providing emotional support to you their bride.
But your bridesmaids are also your guest so you want to be as courteous as possible showing kindness and caring about their feelings.
One other thing you should do for your bridesmaids and that is – try to keep your bridesmaids dress affordable but nice and high quality. You really want your bridesmaid to love their dress.
And remember that being courteous is also an indication of elegance and class and this will be remembered and appreciated long after the bridesmaids gift you may have bought them.
