Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Your best friend is getting married and you have been asked to be her bridesmaid and it is such an exciting time.
Bridesmaids have a number responsibilities leading up to the wedding.  The bride will rely on you to help her make many decisions, address invitations or help with any other wedding DIY that needs to be done and to support her emotionally through this exciting, yet stressful time in her life.  You will help her choose a dress, a venue, the bridesmaid’s outfits, offer décor ideas and the list goes on.

Who Pays for What?

Composing a wedding budget is one of the first things that need to be done once you are engaged.  It is also one of the most important things to do.  Your budget will guide you when planning your wedding and help you avoid getting into any unnecessary debt after the wedding.
The responsibility of who pays for what is something that has changed drastically over the last decade or two.  Traditionally, the bride’s family would cover all the costs related to the wedding day, but because weddings are so expensive, the groom’s family generally contribute a large portion to the wedding and there are no longer any hard a fast rules, but this is a rough guideline on a modern day wedding:

Planning your wedding photos

You spend months and months planning the most important day of your life and the day will come and go in the blink of an eye. Once the wedding day is over, all you really have left (besides a husband) are the photos from your big day.

It is really important to have a connection with your photographer and I would definitely recommend an engagement shoot. The engagement shoot will give you a practice run with your photographer so that you can ensure the spark is there.

The best piece of advice that I could give to any bride-to-be is something that I wish I had learned sooner during the year of planning my own wedding. Some experts say the most stressful thing about planning a wedding is that you are always trying to keep everybody else happy.

As a bride-to-be you will often hear “If I were you, I would…”, or “why don’t you do this…”
