Want to show your bridal party some love? Gift them a present that will be meaningful and personal!

All month long we will be discussing tips for selecting your Bridal Party to help make one of the most important decision about your wedding.

This week we will be talking about showing your bridal party some love following your special day. Your bridal party had been there by your side through the entire wedding process, so a great way to show them that you appreciate their support is by gifting them a personal post-wedding present.

Be sure to get them something that is going to be memorable and especially meaningful to each member of your party. Giving a personal and meaningful gift will always remind your bridal party members that they were a part of your special day.

Doing this will show them that you appreciate all that they did to make you happy. Keep in mind that they took numerous hours and spent their own money to be a part of your wedding, so giving back to them is an important aspect of the wedding process. Bridal party members who had to travel long distances, take time off of work, and spend large sums of money to be a part of your special day deserve some extra recognition and love in return.

The price range that is usually spent on these gifts is anywhere from $75 to $150. Common post-wedding present ideas include tickets for concerts or sporting events, jewelry such as watches or necklaces, a small getaway, or even high-end alcohol. There is no right or wrong decision for post-wedding presents for your bridal party, it all depends on what that specific person is into.

Ultimately, you know your bridal party better than anyone else, so selecting the post-wedding gifts that are best for each member should be a piece of cake!

It’s important to keep your bridal party happy and comfortable by letting them dress for their body type!

All month long we will be discussing tips for selecting your Bridal Party to help you make one of the most important decisions about your wedding.  This week we are giving you a few great recommendations for your wedding.

Here are some of our recommendations:

Let your bridal party dress for their body type. Not every member of your party will have the same size and shape, and only they know what dress type works best for their body. You wouldn’t want any member to feel uncomfortable in their dress, so letting them choose their style of dress will ensure everyone is comfortable and happy in their dress.

Pick out a color and make sure everyone is in the same color scheme. Matching colors is far more important than matching dress styles. People will notice mismatched colors before they notice anything else. It would be very noticeable in wedding photos if any members of the bridal party are not in the same color scheme, so keeping dresses in the same scheme is an important factor to have in mind.

When picking out accessories, search for something that is modestly priced. Keep in mind that your bridal party will most likely only wear these accessories once. Having accessories that look great in photos but won’t break the bank is going to save your bridal party from shelling out more cash than necessary.

Remember, even though they are in your wedding, their entitled to their own opinions as to what type of dress they should wear. Being a stickler about what color to wear along with the dress shape will just create more stress so stay with the basics.

Remember to keep the same color scheme, find modestly-priced accessories that look great in photos, and let your party dress for their own bodies.

There are important aspects to keep in mind when inviting people to be members of your bridal party.

All month long we will be discussing tips for selecting your Bridal Party to help make one of the most important decision about your wedding.

This week we discuss:

  • When to ask your wedding party to participate
  • Uncover the average cost of being a bridesmaid/groomsman
  • Understanding it is ok for someone to decline your request

It is recommended that you give at least 8 months notice, to someone participating in your wedding party. Longer if the wedding is destination, when possible.

We should mention that the average cost to be a bridesmaid/groomsman is anywhere from $1,000 – $2,000. If funds are an issue, perhaps you need to reconsider who you are asking to participate.

Keep in mind someone is allowed to decline your request. There are a number of factors that could prevent someone from fully committing such as: work, children, distance, health issues or financial difficulties. All of which are valid reasons.

Not sure who to invite to be in your bridal party? Here are some tips to help make the process a little easier!

All month long we will be discussing tips for selecting your Bridal Party to help you make one of the most important decisions about your wedding.  This week we are going to discuss who to ask and how many people should be in your Bridal Party.

What should be one of the easiest decisions when planning your wedding can become one of the most stressful, especially if you are indecisive about who to ask to be in your wedding party. You likely have a long list of friends and family to consider and may be wondering who to ask, so here are some basic tips on selecting the members of your party.

The first people to consider are those who have always supported your relationship from the beginning and have the closest relationship to you and your partner. Important members to consider should also be those who you keep regular friendships with and have the closest relationships to. It is also quite important to take into consideration the ability for these people to participate in your bridal party as well.

The great news is that there are no specifications or wrong answers on how many people there should be in your bridal party. Keep in mind, however, that the more people you ask, the more difficult it may be to have all invited members of your party to participate in your wedding.

If you and your spouse-to-be don’t agree on the number of people to ask, remember that the number of bridesmaids to groomsmen does not necessarily have to be equal.  Also, if you are a bride and want your brother, guy best friend, or whoever it may be, to be on your side, go for it!

There are no strict rules when selecting your bridal party, so be sure that whatever you do, it makes you and all members of the party happy!
