Advice To Future Brides from a Former Bridesmaid…

  • Tell your bridesmaids to arrive a half hour before you actually WANT them there. At least one of them will be late. This is most likely be your Maid-of-Honor. She can’t help it. Really. She tried.
  • Make sure you schedule your rehearsal so that the Maid-of-Honor can attend. Otherwise, she will sit in the wrong pew during the ceremony, and the Mother-of-the-Groom will have to whisper to her across the aisle to get her to MOVE.
  • When 4″ heels are involved, try to secure a location for pictures that does NOT involve up-hill walks on cobblestone walkways. Your bridesmaids will be *very* appreciative.
  • Tiny pink plastic giraffes that sit on the brim of your glass are *essential* barware accessories!! They TOTALLY make the drink!
  • Find out what your DJ has allergies to. Then make sure to keep him AWAY from anything containing said allergy-causers. Trust me on this.
  • If there is someone in your Bridal Party with even the *slightest* bit of local celebrity, make sure you do NOT hire a DJ that knows this. He has access to a microphone and various other pieces of audio and will not be afraid to use them.
  • Confirm the date of your wedding with your Baker. The date and the DAY. Even though they assure you that everything is set, confirm AGAIN. That is, unless you want a half-decorated, droopy cake delivered to the reception at 10pm. Your call.
  • Lastly, if you want to be the BEST BRIDE EVER in the eyes of your knitty Maid-of-Honor, buy her a gift certificate to this as part of her Bridal Party gift. She will think you ROCK! (more than she already does, that is)

    Sooooo funny! I love the pics of you all in your dresses. But noted about the miserable designer. ay yi yi. I have 3 (or is it 4?) weddings to attend in the next 6 months. Thankfully, I’m not actually “in” any of them.
