How Do You Choose Your Bridesmaids??
Ok, so one of the most amazing things just happened to you…YOU GOT ENGAGED!! You have franticly called round all of your closest friends and told them what has happened and of course, they are absolutely over the moon for you.
Well, in my opinion, no! You should not have to explain why you have made the decisions you have and why you have chosen certain people and not others. These girls are the people who you need to be with you on one of the biggest days of your life. The people who understand how to make you feel calm, how to help you make decisions and who you know just have your back.
There are no rules when it comes to how many bridesmaids are too many. Its up to you how many people you need around you. Don’t feel like you have to have someone as a bridesmaid, because you were theirs or because you think you should ask them.
Take your time to think about it. There is no rule that you have to have chosen your bridesmaids within a certain amount of time, and there is no rule that you can’t ask someone a little later on if that is what you want to do. You just can’t un-ask someone.
Ultimately, try and enjoy this time. Think of a nice way to ask them to be your bridesmaid, it doesn’t have to be over the top (you have enough going on).
But make it special, this is going to be the only time you will do this and its nice to see how special you are making your girls feel.
