If you have a bridesmaid who has young children, or who is not great with having all eyes on her, you might want to talk to her first before you give her the pressure of saying yes or no. Let her know that whilst you would love her to be there for you, you will understand if she can’t. You could still make sure that she feels a part of the wedding party, perhaps by giving her a corsage to wear, or an important job to do!
You may not realise it, but bridesmaids can really make or break a wedding day for a bride. They can make sure she is calm, collected and be on standby for any unexpected surprises throughout the day. They can also cause stress and strain that the bride really doesn’t need.
So, think carefully about your bridesmaids and you will be sure to have the right ladies by your side.
