The Unspoken Rules Every Bridesmaid Should Follow

From not making an appointment at the bridal boutique to getting kicked off a flight to Vegas, we learned a few key lessons from the film Bridesmaids, that remains the original (and the best) flick to watch with the girls on pre-wedding night. But if you’re looking to prevent these mistakes and kick butt at your bridesmaids duties, here are a few unspoken rules every bridesmaid should follow!

You don’t have to say yes, especially if you’re not invested

Being a bridesmaid is a pretty thankless, time-giving task. There’s no denying the big day is about the Bride, so for all the hard work you’re about to put in, you’d better be prepared to walk away empty handed.

 

Be ready to spend money

It’s no secret that weddings are expensive, so you’d better bet you’ll be forking out some of your own do’ to be a part of the big day. Be it the planning of a Bridal Shower or Hens Party, your job as a bridesmaid is to make the Bride comfortable without any hassle of money woes.

 

Be a Sounding Board 

Sometimes girls just want to talk it out – not necessarily to come to a conclusion or make a decision, just to get it out there! A key job for bridesmaids that is often overlooked is to be a sounding board, ready to listen to the ups and downs of planning a wedding and prepared to give sound advice.

 

Don’t go MIA 

In the lead up to the big day you’d better be prepared to be on call. Bridesmaids are there for the bride on their big day, but should also make themselves available the month before the wedding for all those last minute preparations.

 

The Original Tribe

Don’t complain about the dress

Everyone wants to look their best on the big day, but the only one who gets a free card to complain is the bride herself. Bridesmaids should be willing to wear whatever the bride chooses, but be sure to make yourself known if you are uncomfortable with the choice on the day of choosing (not when its too late!)

 

Don’t post pictures of the Bride on social media

An easy slip up to make, bridesmaids often get so excited on the big day that they’re jumping up and down to share snaps of the beautiful bride. Just remember the unwritten rule, that brides reserve the first chance to post a photo and share with their friends + family before you do.

 

Do put a lot of effort in to a great shindig 

As a bridesmaid, your key role on the big day is to make sure the party is started, and lasts all the way in to the evening! Be prepared to be the first on the dance floor and to keep the party alive – the bridal party should BE the party!

 

Don’t get (too) drunk

And last but not least… know your limits! There should be no tears other than tears of joy and don’t forget to make yourself available on the night to deal with last minute issues, accompany your bride to the bathroom and to be present during speeches. Chin chin!

Brides and Bridesmaids: Who Pays for what?

What can often be one of the most grey areas of organising a wedding is to decide and decipher who pays for what amongst the bridal party. For a guideline to go by, we’ve covered the main items bridesmaids and brides share responsibility for and how to approach the process in a fun, light hearted manner!

Dress & Shoes

The main costs for a bridesmaids are in two items alone: the dress and the shoes. These are generally paid for by the bridesmaid herself, as the maid can re-use the items post-wedding or sell them off if she wishes. As these can often be a significant cost to the maids, it is important for the bride to consult her gals and make sure the whole bridal party is happy with the style, colour and overall choice (but the bride has the final say, of course!)

Hair & Make-up

The two main costs from the bride’s end are considered a treat for the ladies and a “thank you” for being a part of her special day. Hair and make-up are usually covered by the bride as a way of pampering her bridal party to ensure everyone feels beautiful and celebrated as part of such a special day.

Bridal shower

The bridal shower is usually thrown by the bride’s mother, as a way of giving her blessing and to celebrate the life of her daughter (and how she was responsible for her upbringing, of course!) Bridesmaids are often heavily involved in the day and can even be in charge of throwing the shower or making sure it runs smoothly on the day.

Hen’s Night

Outside of the big day itself, the hen’s night is the maids’ biggest responsibility and there’s a lot of importance on making it a night to remember! It is important for the maids to be generous and not skimp out on the event, giving the bride no need to stress and all the reasons in the world to party!

Jewellery

A final thank you gift to the girls for their hard work in planning and helping with the big day is a small gift in the form of jewellery. This is not only important for the day itself, but a great way for the maids to remember being a part of such a special day.
