Choosing your bridesmaids is one of the most important decisions with planning your wedding. With it comes many things to consider so have a read and be enlightened.
Choosing your bridesmaids is one of the most important decisions of your wedding planning process. In a world where marriage is no longer sacred we have also lost the essence and the meaning of bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are not simply a tradition or someone to stand next to you at the altar! The fundamental purpose of bridesmaids is to stand there and witness the covenant between you and your future husband.
On your wedding day your bridesmaids witness your vows and they celebrate with you, but in the days to come they will stand as pillars of strength reminding you of these vows through thick and thin. Ultimately they join you in this decision to support you and to help you throughout the marriage.
For example: if your marriage gets rocky in the future these girls are meant to help you through it. This does not mean run your husband down and opt for divorce but offer sober minded advice and support.
So now what type of girls would this be that would contribute to your marriage on that special day and days to come?
Look for girls who are supportive, genuine and kind. Choose people who are true, honest and loving friends. You need to choose someone who truly loves you and cares about your well being as well as your husbands well being.
Do not choose out of obligation. You DO NOT “HAVE” to choose anyone! Unfortunately this decision may offend some people however never choose someone because you feel obligated, pressured or guilty.
Do not choose girls that may already be against your wedding. First deal with the problem and resolve it with the end result being a peaceful understanding. If a peaceful understanding can not come about and you a hundred percent sure you want to still get married, I would suggest rather invite them as a guest.
Always think wisely and honestly when choosing your bridesmaids. Contemplate your reasoning and perhaps chat to your future husband and see if he is happy with the choice of your bridesmaids.
