5 Tips on How to Make your Bridesmaids Feel Appreciated

Even though your wedding should ultimately be about you and your groom, you should find a way to show appreciation to the members of your bridal party. Make your bridesmaids feel special with these 5 simple tips:

Respect their time

While they will be flattered if you give them small fun tasks to perform at your wedding, make sure not to overburden them with difficult assignments. Respect their time, but keep them informed on your planning process and send them your full wedding day schedule at least a week before the big day.

Let them choose the dresses

Consider ditching the rule that the bridesmaids should wear the same dresses. All of your bridesmaids will want to look their best and it will be hard to find the same style that fits everyone perfectly. You can just let them know which colours you will be using and allow them to choose the length, silhouette and the price.

Treat them with a girly pamper

It is very important to spend some quality time with your bridesmaids in the lead-up to your wedding. Organise a girly pamper and treat your friends with a trip to a spa or a cosmetic salon. You can even organise a pampering session at home and delight them with some handmade cakes and a DIY manicure.

Organise a fun photo shoot

Organising a photo shoot with your bridesmaids is a wonderful idea. This is a great way to spend some time bonding with the girls and they will love to dress up and strike a pose. You can even print out a special photo album with these images to make a lovely surprise

Thank them with fabulous gifts

Finally, express your gratitude with personal presents. Opt for individual presents rather than just choosing the same items. Think what each of them really likes and add a lovely “thank you” note. You can browse Weddingstar’s amazing range of bridesmaid’s gifts to get some great ideas.
