A Guide To Choosing Your Bridesmaids

A guide to choosing your bridesmaids and why you need them

Choosing who you want to be a part of your big day can be a hard choice. You want your bridesmaids to be fun-loving enough to keep you cheery through the stressful days but responsible enough to help with the organisation. A 2016 survey conducted by hitched revealed that brides have on average 3 bridesmaids by their side on the big day. But what are the different types of bridesmaids and what makes them so great?
To give you an idea of the different bridesmaids that are out there, The Waterfront Hotel, a wedding venue in Bedfordshire, has brought you this fun guide.

The wedding specialist

This girl’s a serial bridesmaid and she’s been to more weddings than you can imagine! She has the ability to spot the warning signs of a wedding faux pas before they occur – perhaps someone at the party is getting too tipsy or she knows that two guests don’t get along and shouldn’t be placed together in the table plan…
She knows a wedding schedule off by heart and won’t be asking any questions about where she should be standing at the ceremony. In fact, you’re likely to be asking her some questions to see how other brides have done it. She knows the local suppliers that you should get in touch with, and the ones to avoid – an ideal friend to have around pre-wedding!

The social media diva

You’ll usually find her face down on her smartphone and if not, she’ll be choosing the perfect angle to snap photos of her meal. She’s been stalking the photos of her newlywedded Facebook friends to find some of the best suppliers around for flowers and d├ęcor. She’s set up a hashtag of your surnames after the engagement party and has been using it when adding photos of your wedding planning progress ever since – a perfect memory bank for you to look back on.
If you want a Snapchat location filter for guests to use on the big day, she’s the one to ask. You should warn her first if you’re wanting a private affair though because she’ll have your first dance on a live stream and will have Instagrammed your wedding rings before they’re even on your finger…

The emotional friend

She’s been your close friend forever and you couldn’t imagine the day without her. But please stop crying, you’re ruining the photos.
As soon as you walked down the aisle, her eyes started to water and after a glass of champagne it escalated from there… This bridesmaid is the one to consult when you’re trying to write your wedding vows – she’ll know all the right words to say. She’s definitely a valued member of your bridal party — just don’t spend too much on her makeup…

The funny friend

Put this friend in charge of the hen do organisation. She’s creative and hilarious and will organize a night that’s guaranteed to get your bridesmaids to know one another.
Guests want some entertainment at the wedding breakfast. You should let your comedienne bridesmaid make a speech on your big day (or at least let her help write it) – she’s got the funniest memories to share and has a way with words that is guaranteed to make your guests giggle.

The top organiser

According to one study, the average wedding has 75 daytime and 101 evening guests. With all of these people, you need someone to help keep things in check on the big day whilst you mingle with family and friends. That’s where this bridesmaid comes in to help.  
From birthday parties to baby showers, she’s always the organiser. She bought you your own wedding planning book but probably used it more than you. This bridesmaid will be the first to make sure everyone is the right place for photos and gathering guests around the dancefloor for your first dance. Once the wedding day is over, you’ll wonder how you could’ve done it without her!
