Your wedding day is one of the most special moments in your life – and while you will definitely be the Queen of the Day, choosing the right bridesmaids can be really important. How to do this? What are the things brides need to consider before they pick their bridesmaids? We have gathered some of the most important tips out there – so make sure to read on if you want to find out more.
First and foremost, please keep in mind that this is your choice and your choice alone. You need to make sure you select bridesmaids because you really want them to play a special role in your wedding, not because someone made you do this.
When it comes to the number of bridesmaids, you should also know that, in general, it is advisable that you have one bridesmaid for each 20 guest. However, this rule can be broken if you want more (or less) bridesmaids at your wedding.
Keep in mind the costs too. Some of your best friends may not be able to afford the costs of being bridesmaids for your Big Day, so you should be prepared to receive some “No’s” as well.
Last, but definitely not least, talk to your groom-to-be about this too. Of course, he doesn’t have to have the same number of groomsmen – but before you decide on anything, make sure you have a talk with him so that you make sure you are thinking of the same “numbers”.
