Bridesmaid Survival Tips

Being a bridesmaid is an honor and an opportunity to share joy. The bride and her best ladies need to keep both of these things in mind to make the happiest memories possible. The wedding day will fly by; you will spend many more hours in the preparation zone so make the most of it. To have the best possible experience, stay focused on the end result and take these words of wisdom from the folks at Self:

“For the bride, a wedding is one of the major life changes that affects them in a big way emotionally,” says Bonior. “The bride goes through a whirlwind of emotions, from excitement and happiness to stress. And that sort of storm can be very easily be taken out negatively on the person’s friend or bridesmaid. When you’re a bridesmaid, you can’t turn it off. You can’t just decide to get some space from the bride, because you have to respect the bride. You have to be there. You have to kind of do what she says, whereas normally, if someone was going through a crazy time, you can get a little space. As a bridesmaid it’s very hard to get space.” Read more at Self

Planning Ahead

Remind your girls to bring their shoes and undergarments to the fitting session. Have water, juice, and high protein snacks on hand to prevent low blood sugar drama and keep everyone focused on the task at hand. Similarly, delegate someone to handle snacks and beverages on your wedding day so that you have refreshments organized. Fainting at the altar is not the look anyone is going for. Here are some hydration tips to keep in mind:

Cool Off With Some Cucumber Water

Did you know that it’s been proven that cucumbers can reduce your body temperature by at least three degrees? According to Afeisha James-Kipps, cofounder of Wedspire, it’s true! She recommends sipping on some cucumber water infused with mint leaves to cool off and stay refreshed while you get ready. Add a splash of gin to give it a little kick after your walk down the aisle.

No Place For Dress Drama

Hopefully, on your special day you will have secure and supportive bridesmaids by your side. However, if you feel resistance from anyone who’s not thrilled about what she’s being asked to wear, stay calm and share the following, which should put things into perspective:

I have a box full of bridesmaid dresses that range from emerald green to dead of night black. However, I also have a box full of precious memories. I’ve witnessed girls who thought they’d never get married finally find true love. I’ve seen my brother, who almost never cries, let the tears stream down his face as he saw his bride for the first time walk down aisle. Every moment was beyond priceless. Additional details at CBN
