The Best Part About Being A Bridesmaid

By

The bridesmaids are almost as important as the bride on the wedding day. They're usually a posse of the bride's most loyal girls that will be by her side through it all. It should be a great honor if you're chosen to be one.

From start to finish, bridesmaids are there for the bride getting things in order so her special day is as close to perfect as possible. The process of getting engaged, planning, and then the actual wedding can be a bit stressful. Bridesmaids are literally there to help ease that stress, even if just a little bit, without a physical reward in the end. It's often overlooked, but there are so many amazing things about being part of the bride tribe.
