What Every Bride Needs To Tell Their Bridal Party
As a bride to be I cannot stress the importance of expressing gratitude to your bridal party. They are investing a massive amount of their personal time, energy and money into making sure your wedding journey is pure perfection. A bridesmaid’s sole job is to ensure that you are having the time of your life making irreplaceable memories. As a human being, it takes approximately 15 seconds to say "THANK YOU" to the girls that you have hand-picked to stand by your side!!
The girls have done their job and now it’s time for you, as the bride, to do hers. Your job as a bride is to make sure your bridal party is set up for success. The following list is compiled of things that you, as the bride, should tell your bridesmaids before the big day.
Make sure they are fully aware of the timeline of day of events. If they aren’t in the know then they can’t be where they need to be. Having a prepped and detailed itinerary is a must.
GO TO PERSON
Make sure your MOH knows who they can go to if there are any fires to be put out or any questions they need an answer to. A wedding planner or day of coordinator are typically those who hold all the answers! If you give your bridal party a heads up on who to direct their questions to then you are bothered less which is a beautiful and stress free thing to strive for.
