Be certain before asking

If there’s one tip I can give a bride about choosing her bridesmaids, it’s definitely to be certain. Once you ask, you cannot take it back, because that would be terrible. Before you ask, ask yourself the question, how long have you known each other or do you see yourself still being friends in years to come? While I understand that things can change, it’s imperative that at the time, you have no reservations.

You don’t have to ask someone, just because they chose you

You may have an old friend that you were a bridesmaid for, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to return the favour. If they ask why they’re not chosen, don’t hold back, tell the truth. Yes, this may mean an awkward conversation or two, but better to be out in the open. As an alternative gesture, you could involve them in a different way.

Also, keep in mind that there is no need to have that flower girl or page boy, especially if you’re not close to the children.

Decide on their duties

Depending on how many bridesmaids you have, it’s always a good idea to delegate tasks. There are many things that can be expected from bridesmaids, so ensure everyone is clear on their job. Tasks include planning the hen’s night, assisting with suppliers and who will be responsible for gathering all the relatives for the group photographs on the day. Setting honest expectations is important in the lead up to the wedding and on the actual day.

Consider their personalities

Your wedding day needs to run as smoothly as possible. It’s important that your bridesmaids either know each other, or if not, you know their personalities won’t clash on the day. Consider those that will easily fit in, no matter what group their in.

Think about your budget

The more bridesmaids you have, the more dresses and gifts you have to buy. Of course, many bridesmaids have to fund their own dress, but as a bride, you normally give a thank you gift to your chosen ones on the day. Some brides choose to have no bridesmaids, while others choose several.
