Having your closest friends standing by your side on your wedding day will be an amazing moment to remember of your celebration. However, sometimes getting them down the aisle can be quite the experience filled with unexpected drama and occasionally resentment. You may have specific ideas for the type and style of bridesmaid dress you’d like your friends to wear or you may even be asking them to spend a great deal of cash on your pre-wedding events. This is why it’s important to make sure your bridal party feels like they are appreciated and respected every step of the way.
Are you wondering how to make that happen effortlessly? Here are 5 ways to make your bridesmaids feel appreciated during your wedding planning process.
A Handwritten Note
Writing each member of your bridal party a handwritten note will go a long way! I love getting notes in the mail “just because” about as much as I love sending them. Thank them for being there by your side, for the little things that felt like giant things each of your bridesmaids did for you throughout the wedding adventure, and for personal memories they made with you in your life.
A Phone Call
Take a tiny break from your wedding plans and give your bridesmaids a call to catch up on everything and anything but your big day. Let them know you’re still thinking about them and interested in their lives.
Give Each Bridesmaid a Task
Instead of making all the decisions yourself or handing your maid-of-honor an overwhelming, seemingly never ending list of bridal party tasks, ask each bridesmaid to take on something, anything, that they are passionate about. Ideas could be thinking of bridal shower party games or brainstorming locations for the bachelorette party. This can let them feel important and included and alleviate stress on you and your maid of honor.
Listen to Them
Utilize some of the ideas of your bridesmaids and be sure to listen and take into consideration the suggestions they send your way. Finding a way to incorporate the ideas you love the most into your pre-wedding plans will speak volumes to your friends.
