About Bridesmaid Roles

Bridesmaid paraphernalia

With the average cost of the weddings in the region of $35,000, you can’t always expect the bride-to-be to cover all expenses related to the big day. This may include the dress for the bridesmaids. In situations like this it will be necessary to fund your own gown. In addition to the actual dress, also make sure to scout for wedding accessories like jewelry and shoes. Try to break in any new shoes before the big day to avoid aching feet or blisters. Splitting the bill may also apply to other areas, such as hen parties that are taking place a long distance from home or even abroad.

Attend pre-wedding events

A typical responsibility of the bridesmaids is to make sure they are available to attend any pre-wedding events, such as rehearsals, hen party, bridal shower, etc. Other occasions to be helpful include shopping for the wedding dress or other supplies, as well as to attend any crisis planning meetings.

Supportive role

Bridesmaids are expected to take on a supportive role at the wedding ceremony. Most brides will have the inevitable pre-wedding nerves, and you can help by being a calming influence. At the ceremony, the bridesmaids help the bride out of the car and make sure the dress still looks on-point.

The supportive role can continue at the reception where you help guests find their seats, invite everyone to sign the guest book, and make sure everyone is having a good time. Also, a bridesmaid can help to keep a note of the gifts received at bridal showers or other parties to make it easier for the bride and groom to write thank-you notes

Flowing Romantic Wedding Gowns

For fair-skinned brides – Slipping into yellow toned ivory gowns is the best option. It would be a good idea to stay away from pure white as this colour can make you appear pale and tired in photographs.

For medium toned brides – Those of you who are pinkish or have radiate a blue undertone, a creamier shade of white will work magic on you. It means you can wear the most popular shade of wedding gown which is Ivory. This shade will prevent you from looking too flushed and will balance your complexion beautifully.

Olive skin tone – For those who have an olive skin tone like Jessica Alba, whites with a pink undertone will give you a natural dewy look. Your best bet would be champagne, silk white or rum white.

Dark skin tone – For all you lovely dark-skinned brides, you are in luck because you can carry off any shade of white, but if you have yellow undertones keep away from yellow ivory tones.

Wedding Gowns that Accentuate your Figure

When you visit a bridal store, you will find a wide selection of dresses in various fabrics, designs and pattern, but the ones that look good on display or a hanger may not always bring out the best in you.

Hourglass maidens – Show off those sexy curves with body clinging mermaid wedding gowns that will enhance your feminine beauty. But steer clear of ruffles and tiers and you will look like a million dollars!

Pear shapes – You can benefit from wedding dresses with A-line or ball gowns that will glide over the curvy lower and gowns with embellishments at the waist will make the eye focus on the upper part of your body.

Apple figures – They look best in gowns that have a corset bodice with an open neckline like a wide v-neck or an off-the-shoulder to help balance out a full bust line. You will need to shape your waistline with a crystal belt or a ribbon to define those lovely curves.

Book a Resort for Wedding

All under one roof

When you host your wedding at a resort, all the vendors will be in one place and they will be coordinated by the resort staff. The catering, linens, tables and chairs, and bar service will be taken care of and you will be stress free. You don’t have to worry before, during and after the big day. Since the vendors and the entire bridal party are stationed at one place, there will be no room for errors.

Pre-wedding pampering

If you want a little bit of pre-wedding pampering, you can do it at the resort. You and your guests can go for spa services; you can enjoy beauty treatments until it’s time to get dressed for the big event. After the wedding you can even book a couples message and unwind.

Rain plan

If you are planning an outdoor wedding, the weather won’t always be accommodating. However, resorts will have multiple venues on the premises. So in case if the rain plays spoilsport, they will have a back-up plan and you don’t have to worry about it.

A certain level of excellence guaranteed

When you book a resort you get access to their experienced staff. They are trained to handle all kinds of big events. They will welcome your guests and provide them delicious food and outstanding service. In short, when you organise your wedding in a resort you are assured of a certain level of excellence.

Pre and post wedding activities

You can really impress your guests by organising pre and post wedding activities. This will also give them a chance to mix and mingle and have a good time. You can plan some indoor and outdoor activities. The morning after, consider a relaxing dip in the pool or a game of golf or badminton.
