That future bride in your life is counting on you in a big way if she put as much thought as we hope she did into choosing her team of bridesmaids.
To help maids pull through, the Toronto Sun came up with some advice for those who may be carrying the weight of a wedding on their shoulders.
Besides attending to their own appearances, the best bridesmaids come equipped for every worst-case scenario that might befall anyone (including the organ player). The Sun recommends packing clear nail polish to stop runs in any amount of stockings, bobby pins and touch-ups for all, as well as contact information for vendors and suppliers.
Maids should also contribute financially and emotionally, whether pooling together on a group gift or lending numerous shoulders to cry on.
Last, but not least, bridesmaids can take it upon themselves to plan the bridal shower and bachelorette party. A joint effort usually produces the best ideas in terms of decor, themes and bridal shower gifts, and they can expect to receive some pretty neat bridal shower favors in return.
Fun gifts for the good of all could include customized team buttons as well as personalized cosmetic bags. All that hard work will surely deserve some luxury, so getting some monogrammed cotton velour bathrobes might not be a bad idea, either.
