4 Tips to Help You in Your Relationship with Your Bridesmaids

You have chosen these ladies to stand by your side on one of the most important days of your life: your wedding on the Eastern Shore. Of course, you want them to be truly happy and feel excellent while celebrating your love story – but what are the things you should keep in mind if you don’t want your relationship with them to be ruined by stress and pre-wedding anxiety?

We have gathered 4 of the most important tips to help you in your relationship with your bridesmaids – so read on and find out more.

  • They will be honest. That’s what you want them to be when you are trying on the 20th dress, or when your wedding colors are way too much. You may not like what you hear from them at all times, but understand that this is their way of helping you. With so much stress and anxiety, expect your bridesmaids to be your sanity check in times when you really don’t know what you want anymore.
  • They will spend money. But that’s where you should be very careful: don’t allow your bridesmaids to spend more than they can afford. Choose affordable dresses (and preferably, designs they can wear on other occasions too). Don’t set unrealistic expectations on how much they can spend on the pre-wedding events either. Be kind and cautious with your bridesmaids’ finances – they will be more than thankful for it.
  • They will help you. Whether it’s licking stamps for the invitations or helping you settle on the perfect wedding cake combination, they’ll be there for you. However, you shouldn’t expect them to be there for every single wedding task – they too have lives, jobs, families, boyfriends, and so on. Be kind with your bridesmaids’ time just as you are with their finances.
  • They will make you feel special. From the moment you open your eyes on the wedding day to the moment you finally head off into your happy honeymoon sunset, your bridesmaids will do every single thing they can to make sure you are happy. And you should be really thankful for their support at all times.
