12 Ways to Keep Your Bridesmaids Happy

If you are planning a wedding, you likely aren’t doing it alone. Most brides and grooms have a group of friends to help them with everything from dress shopping to hosting showers and ensuring guests have a great time at the reception. Your wedding party will put a lot of time, effort and money into your wedding, on the big day and before. It is important to let your wedding party know how much you appreciate them. Try these tips for pampering your wedding party in the lead-up to your ceremony and reception.

Plus, allowing ladies to select their dress ensures they can choose something on their budget and which they will wear again. Another way to pamper your bridesmaids while keeping their spending down is to give them their wedding-day accessories as wedding gifts. It is traditional to give a gift to each member of your wedding party, and giving one that they will wear at the ceremony will ensure everyone has a uniform look.
