Do These 10 Things To Keep Your Bridesmaids Happy (And Still Loving You, Post-Wedding)
Once a girl and her girlfriends morph into a bride and her bridesmaids, the relationships become just a little more delicate than they were. Just like with your groom, all of a sudden, there is stuff concerning family and money and various obligations swirling all around where it wasn’t before, and it can definitely cause issues. Hopefully, only issues that can be resolved quickly over a bottle of wine, of course—but issues, just the same.
We’ve offered help to brides before who have found themselves with cranky or uncooperative or complaining bridesmaids, before—which, sometimes, let’s face it, is necessary—but because it can also happen, of course, that it’s the bride who is making her bridesmaids nuts, we wanted to share this great piece we saw on HuffPo this week.
It offers 10 tips for brides on how, throughout the whole process, both during engagement and on the wedding day, to keep their bridesmaids happy. From giving them everything from a say in their appearance that day to awesome thank-you gifts and a heads-up on any creepy groomsmen they might come into contact with, it’s great advice—and honestly, each of the ten is easy to do.
