Be a Bridesmaid

LEARN WHAT NOT TO DO

What could be deemed the best of the benefits of being a bridesmaid is the free course on what not to do on the big day. Is your bride an annoying ‘zilla? Does she really need all the table cloths, napkins and menus to match perfectly? Don’t get me started on the food.

MAKE IT A PARTY

Between the showering of gifts (read: a relaxing spa day perhaps?) and the bachelorette or "one last time" celebratory night, you have a year of partying to look forward to. Put on your best dress and heels and have a ball! Remember, if you’re still single you don’t have a curfew. Ha!

MAKE NO MORE COMMITMENTS AFTER THE WEDDING

After the "I dos," you no longer have to, at least not for the bride. Unlike your blissful bride friend, you don’t have to spend the rest of your life committed to anyone else. Just be there for her for the months leading up to the wedding, then bail!

GET PRETTY

The wedding is a great excuse to get your makeup and hair done, too. Try up-do styles that you’ve never donned before. Find make-up trends in magazines, on Pinterest and YouTube. Go all out with your cute self, but don’t upstage the bride, if you can help it; it’s still her day, honey.

MEET NEW PEOPLE

The wedding gives you a chance to be your single self and meet as many of your bride’s male cousins (or female cousins, hey!) as you can take. Being single does not have to be a lonely journey during your stint as a bridesmaid. Groomsmen in tuxes are quite sexy, too, by the way. I’m just sayin’!

I was one of the bridesmaids at my uncle's wedding. Very confused about what was going on for the whole ceremony, as I had never been to a wedding before, but it was nice of them to pick me to be a bridesmaid - and I had my hair all curly too, which was fun!
