How to keep your bridesmaids on board

If you’re like most brides, you’ve probably roped your bridesmaids into organising and preparing a lot for your big day. From posting the invitations and collecting the flowers to arranging the hair and makeup, transport and hen night, bridesmaids often end up taking on a lot more than they bargained for when their best friends get hitched.

With so many things to organise, it can be difficult to think about other people in the run up to your wedding day. However, saying thank you to the people who have made the event a reality is incredibly important so it’s essential that you put the time and energy into making sure your bridesmaids are properly appreciated.

Make sure your bridesmaids’ dresses fit perfectly

There is an old cliché in the world of weddings that brides deliberately choose unattractive dresses for their bridesmaids in an effort to stand out even more on their big day. To make sure your bridesmaids know you value their efforts, do everything you can to avoid this easily made error, opting for beautifully made, flattering dresses instead.

As it can be difficult to find a single dress that suits different body shapes, you can tailor each dress to fit the wearer by investing in dress alterations. Just like bridal alterations, these little tweaks and adjustments can transform the look of a bridesmaid’s dress, helping it to fall elegantly and make the wearer feel fabulous.


Be prepared for unpredictable weather

If your wedding or reception is going to be held outdoors, ensuring your bridesmaids are properly prepared for every eventuality is essential. There’s nothing worse than shivering through a ceremony when guests’ eyes and camera lenses are watching your every move, so invest in shawls or coats for your entourage.

If the coats you find don’t fit your bridesmaids perfectly, a quick and affordable coat alteration should help the garment to look fantastic on the day.

Hair and make up

To show your bridesmaids they’re truly valued, arrange for them to have their hair and makeup done by a professional on the big day. Not only will this be a welcome treat, it will also help them to feel their best when all eyes are on them.
