Your wedding is primarily of course a celebration of the love between you and your partner and is an incredibly special and legally binding commitment. But while it’s about you as a couple, it’s also a great opportunity to bring your loved ones together, in particular your best girly friends. When it comes to details like your dress, your hair, makeup and other styling elements of your special day, these will in many cases be a surprise for your partner, who invariably won’t be involved in the decision making. So, having your closest female friends to help you is massively key and can be a great bonding process for you all. Here are some ideas for enjoying time with your bridal party in the lead up to your wedding.
Choosing your wedding dress is a huge decision. You’ll need the best people with you, those who can be honest but still be tactful, those who will let you know if something doesn’t look right and will celebrate with you when you find something that does. Having your friends with you, whom you can trust and lean on for support can be a fantastic friendship strengthener! Once your own dress is sorted, of course you then have the job of choosing your bridesmaid dresses. Providing everyone is thoughtful and flexible, it can be a lot of fun.
Weddings can be expensive, and one way that you can keep costs down is by getting crafty. Invitations, place settings and decorations can all be made if you have the creativity, BUT it can be time consuming trying to do everything yourself. So how about inviting your girlfriends over for wine and nibbles, and having a bit of a DIY party? It’s a chance to chat and catch up and you can be really productive and definitely less stressful having help rather than trying to juggle everything yourself. Just make sure that your friends have the time and are happy to help and definitely don’t leave it until the last moment as that could create even more stress!
Your hen party is the perfect opportunity after a lot of wedding planning to just enjoy yourselves. You can let your hair down, enjoy each other’s company and make some memories. If you don’t fancy doing any more planning after all of the wedding stuff, you could always consider some professional help, such as a company like Posh Fizz hen parties and book the whole shebang through them. Use this time to appreciate your friends’ company, thank them for all of their help and most importantly, you can all just breathe a big sigh of relief knowing that the wedding is all organised and ready to go!
Unfortunately, most of us don’t get to spend as much time as we’d like with our BFFs. But an occasion like a wedding gives you a great reason to catch up, spend time together and appreciate the help and support they can give you.
