10 Ways to Make Your Bridesmaids Feel Extra Special
The women you select to be in your bridal party are more than just bridesmaids. They are often friends, family, and truth be told, so much more. Besides the fact that you chose them to be in your entourage, it is a great opportunity to let them know how much it means to have them in your life. Keep reading for some ideas as to how you can make each of your bridesmaids feel a little extra special in terms of your relationship.
A Tailored Proposal
It may be cheaper to make everyone’s gift the same, but including an element tailored to each of your girls will let them know that they haven’t just been lumped in with the group. It can be a handwritten letter detailing how much they mean to you and have impacted your life. Or perhaps a gift that only pertains to a joke or memory between the two of you.
Spend time with each of your girls one-on-one to let them know how much you appreciate them, and why you chose them to be your bridesmaid. This is a question every bridesmaid would wholeheartedly appreciate an answer to. During this time, you can also go into detail as to how you believe they can contribute to your wedding or reception. Everyone likes to feel like they can be of help!
Introduce Them to One Another
Introducing your bridesmaids to one another is not only important to ensure that everyone gets along, but meshing the people that mean so much to you is another testament to the bridesmaids. This lets them know that not only do you want them to be a part of your life, but that you are proud to introduce them to the other important people in your life.
Go Out Regularly
If possible, try to go out with your girl gang on a few occasions, rather than just the bachelorette party. This will give your girls more time to get to know one another, and to build genuine, lasting friendships. Plus everyone will be more comfortable come the day of your wedding.
Ask and Listen to Their Opinions
Let them know that they are in your party to be more than a pretty face. Ask their opinion on details of your wedding, and genuinely listen – even if you don’t intend to utilize their suggestions. Getting their input will also ensure they aren’t absolutely miserable in terms of their bridesmaid getup, such as their dresses, shoes, makeup or hair styles.
Treat them the Day Of
After all of the time and energy your girls will have put in leading up to the big day, they will deserve a treat. Have a small mimosa bar prepared, including fresh fruit, as well as some delicious breakfast foods for them to enjoy as they get dressed. This will ensure everyone has a chance to eat, despite running any last minute errands for you.
