Get your bridesmaids a small little gift to thank them for standing by your side. They are your gal pals, your ladies, your tried and true, so don't forget them in the craziness of planning your wedding. They most likely have planned your bridal showers, hen party and spent a lot of money on their dresses. It will surprise you how the smallest things, yet thoughtful things really make people feel loved. Some brides get their bridesmaid a piece of jewellery that they all can wear for the wedding. Other times they are personalised gifts that the bride picks out for each woman. Whether it is a bracelet or a robe to get ready in, your ladies will feel appreciated!
One of the biggest ways a bride can bless her bridesmaids is by letting them pick their own dress. Now this doesn't mean that you don't have any say in what they are wearing on your wedding day. What it does mean is all the money that your bridesmaids are spending on their dresses will be put to good use because they actually can wear it again to another occasion! What you can do is send the colour scheme to your bridesmaids. Have them pick a dress and send it to you to have your approval. If you don't like it, then give them a few examples of what you are hoping for. Trust me, they will be thrilled knowing that they aren't throwing money out the window!
Hair and Makeup
Everyone wants to look nice! And especially when there are pictures being taken of you. Pamper your beloved bridesmaids with hair and makeup artists. It doesn't have to be mandatory but for those who do want a little extra help, they can get that. We also love when brides provide all the makeup in the colouring that they want their bridesmaids to wear. This way if people want to do it themselves they can! And still match the rest of the party. Always remember that you need to wear almost twice as much as you probably feel comfortable wearing. It may look like a lot up close, but in pictures it will look just right.
