Choosing Your Bridesmaids
The first step in planning a wedding after the big proposal is deciding who you want standing by your side when you say “I Do.” A statistical study, found that the average American bride has 4.39 bridesmaids.
It’s a tough decision to make when considering the length of time someone has known you and the depth of the relationships with the ladies in your life. You want to think about someone that is not only a trusted friend, but who is also willing to put in the work to plan and prepare for your big day. Your bridesmaids’ lifestyle must also be taken into consideration – if she just had a baby, lost her job, or lives across the country those might all be reasons why she can’t commit to planning your wedding.
