While the bride and groom are the two most important people at a wedding, the fun that comes with your wedding is being able to celebrate and anticipate your big day with your closet friends by your side serving as bridesmaids and groomsmen.
Bridesmaids are considered friends of the bride, who make the day colorful.
You might think you can just call a few friends, assign them a bridal title, and call it a day, but there are a few other things you’ll want to consider before you assemble your bridal train.
1. Know The Number Of Ladies You Need On Your Train

2. Consider Their Personalities (Is she a bridesmaid Material)
Before you choose your maids, think about how the entire wedding party will get along. If one person on your list has temperamental personality and tends to rub it on people the wrong way, that’s the potential drama you will want to avoid if you can. Instead, aim for a group of bridesmaids awho are friendly, cordial, and can transition easily between groups.
3. What Is The Budget For Bridesmaid
Sometimes, being a bridesmaid might be expensive. In most cases they pay for their dresses, makeup and accessories and sometimes the bridal shower. So consider all the ladies you have in mind first and be sure they are willing and able to commit to this expenses.
4. What Will They Be Wearing
Every bridesmaid will definitely want to look good on that day, but not all of them will like the particular dress you might want them to wear. If you want them to wear a sleeveless dress for instance, some of your maids might not be comfortable in that. So before you choose the ladies, know their sense of style and know what all of them will be comfortable wearing so you don’t have problems after selecting the ladies.
5. Don’t Be Tempted To Include All Your Siblings

Your siblings will have other major responsibilities on that day, so try to leave some of them out of the wedding party so that they won’t always have to excuse themselves from the bridal party table.

This Guide Will Help You Pick The Perfect Wedding Dress For Your Body Shape
There are different types wedding dresses and many brides get confused on what style of dress to go for on their big day.
How do you chose a dress that will suit your body shape and make you look beautiful.
There are at least six of different types body shapes for women and they fall into – hourglass, slim, petite, apple, pear, and full figure.
Because there are several wedding dresses out there, here is a guide on how you know which suits you best.
A dress with a Structured off-the-shoulder neckline offers a subtle curve that minimises a large bust. If you love a strapless gown, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across
Petite Brides should avoid dresses with a dropped waist and ball gowns. A gown that is fitted to your body and then flares at either the lower hip or knee gives the illusion of height. Find a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress (and therefore you) appear longer. Look for Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns.
Showcase your beautiful curves and go for gowns that gradually flares out in an A formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the mid section and floating away from the hips and thighs, a dress that accentuates your curves well.
A plus sized bride should not be trying too hard to hide or bury her curves. An Empire dress that begins just under the bust and flows into a gradual floor-length A-line.
The strategy for this is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress needs to reflect your height. The most flattering styles for a tall bride are fit and flare gowns. These fitted looks highlight the long lines of the bride and compliment her figure in every way.
Pear Shaped Brides
If you’re smaller on top and curvier on the bottom, you are considered pear-shaped. A pear-shaped bride will never fail to look stunning in a ballgown or A-line silhouette. Go down for a gown that gradually flares out from the waist to the floor highlighting the narrowness of the midriff. A thin strap V-neck will help to enhance the lean features of the upper body.
