Choose Bridesmaids

1. Be trendy

Its origin goes back to ancient Rome, when the bridesmaids accompanied the bride to the place of the wedding. Their main function was to protect her during the trip, reason why they dressed in similar costumes is the objective of confusing to possible kidnappers. In the Anglo-Saxon weddings, they were called flower girls, because they threw petals at the bride’s step to wish her good luck.

2. What functions do they play?

Before deciding them between candidates, you have to think about the functions that your bridesmaids will perform: this way you will know who to choose. Not everyone serves, as they should work as a team, be patient and always be at your disposal. Remember that the role of the maid of honor is not just to precede you on your way to the altar or to put on the tail of your dress. In the same way that you have spent time thinking about original wedding details or have consulted several catalogs until you find those perfect wedding shoes, you also have to make an effort to find the ideal bridesmaids. These will be your main tasks:

Before the wedding:

Traditionally, bridesmaids should help you with all the wedding preparations and support you unconditionally so you won’t feel too nervous. They will advise you on the choice of your bridal look, the bouquet… And they will also help you look for ideas for wedding details, to think about the music for the banquet, to decide on the bridal cake or even to look at hairstyles for loose hair. And, of course, they will organize an unforgettable party.

The wedding day:

They have to help you from the first thing in the morning, taking care of you and make sure that you are perfect. They will also accompany you to the church, ensuring that your nice ball gown wedding dress and the tail are always where they should be.

3. Who should I choose?

Traditionally the bridesmaids are single and young. They must also be willing and able to solve any problem that may happen. It is advisable that all of you live in the same city or nearby to organize fun meetings or informal meals to go and organize everything with peace of mind. Think that you should choose funny, organized, responsible and interested girls in your well-being.

Traditional Wedding Rings

Let’s have a look at all the unique alternatives which you can present at the place of a traditional wedding ring.

A beautiful Necklace: Presenting your future soul with charming necklace would be an ideal alternative. For the necklace pendant, you can prefer engraved stones or add a personalised touch to it by putting your spouse name on it.

The wedding bands or customised chain also do a great job. Moreover, you can put a special quote or personalized message on the stone and present it to your better half with a beautiful necklace.

Tattoos: The trend of finger tattoos have become quite popular these days. Many couples are opting to get their partner name engraved on their ring finger. Both wife and husband can choose any design of tattoo from simple to extravagant. You can also have the design according to your taste. From the thin line tattoo to compact custom design or a symbol that has meaning for you two, finger tattoo rings are permanent, and the best alternative to traditional wedding rings. Finger tattoos are suitable for daring couples who feel uncomfortable in wearing the rings.

Wedding bands with engraved fingerprints: Wedding bands are the perfect alternative to traditional wedding rings, and when the wedding band gets engraved with the fingerprints they become more special and unique. You may ask any jewellery designer to put your fingerprints inside or outside the band. Wedding bands with engraved fingerprints are genuinely personal and wondrous way to express love to your partner.

Silicon Bands: If your partner has an active lifestyle and feel uneasy in wearing the metal at work or home then nothing would be better than colourful silicone bands as an engagement ring. Silicone bands are ideal for people who have a fear of losing their expensive rings. Also, the silicone rings are inexpensive, durable and can comfortably fit on the ring finger. Silicone wedding rings are the quite popular and the best stylish alternative to the traditional rings.

Diamond Earrings: Diamonds are every girl best friend. So, if you are looking for something classy to present your better half than surprise her with a charming pair of diamonds. You can choose the earrings of any size, cut and design. Your partner would surely be happy to receive the beautiful set of earning.

All about Wedding Day Problems and Solutions

Another problem that can happen with your dress is that it can rip. If you are transitioning from house to the church, or the church to the reception venue, you are most likely going to be getting in and out of cars. It is possible that your dress can get stuck in the door and rip. It is also possible that someone may step on your long train (if you have one) and it can rip. An easy fix would be to keep a roll of fabric tape around you in addition to the tide to-go stick.

Another issue that can happen on your wedding day is rain. The weather is something that is completely out of any human’s control, but I have found ways that can solve this issue. With being around so many weddings that have been rained out, you always need to make sure to have a backup plan. You need an indoor venue backup in case the forecast is not what you want it to be. If everything is planned outside and there is no available indoor venue, make sure to have a tent set-up available if need be at last minute. I have been to so many weddings that actually turned out perfectly even though the rain tends to come in unexpectedly. The only reason they turn out as perfect as they do are because we always have backup plans.

If you are having a wedding during an iffy weather situation, I would always be prepared with large umbrellas. I would make sure to get a lot of them, and provide them for your guests. The umbrellas can actually make a really cute photo opportunity as well if everyone is carrying the same umbrellas or are color coordinated with your wedding theme. Something to not forget about is to make sure to provide them for your wedding party. The wedding party should have colors that complement their dress scheme so that just because they need to hold umbrellas, they are doing it in style since there are photo opportunities at all times. The best photos are never planned ones.

Being a Bridesmaid

Understand your duties

The role of the bridesmaid can vary with brides having very different expectations. Try to find out early on what you will be expected to do, and also how often you will need to be available to help.

Organize a fab bachelorette party

The bridesmaids are likely to be asked to help the maid of honor in the process of organizing the bachelorette party. The timing of the event can vary and may be held four or five weeks before the special day or left until the last weekend before the wedding. The party should be organized with a theme that matches the bride’s personality and something fun for everyone to enjoy.

Expect to spend money

There is a great chance that being a bridesmaid means spending money. The costs involved may relate to pooling funds with other members of the bridal party to plan the bachelorette party, as well as cover the cost of your hair, make up and dress for the special day. Also, there is the cost of travel to consider if you don’t live close to the bride.

Only accept the role if completely interested

Don’t accept the role of bridesmaid simply because you were asked. It can be time-consuming and take up several months of your time. Also, there are times that are certain to be very stressful, so it is only worthwhile while taking on the responsibility if 100% committed to helping your friend or family member. A bridesmaid will take on a lot of roles, such as invitation writing, organizing things and dress shopping.

Don’t get difficult about the dress

The bride may already have a clear idea of the dresses to be worn by the bridal party. So, if it is a style that doesn’t match your particular tastes, you really want to simply grin and bear it. It is only for the one day and you should do what is necessary to keep the bride happy.
