Are you a maid-of-honor, bridesmaid or mother of a bride to be? If so, your number one job is to keep the bride happy while being supportive of her. Here are a few ways you can make your friend, sister or daughter feel special before, after, and during her big day.
Pull Out the Home Movies & Reminisce
Nostalgia is a natural part of any wedding, but you can make the bride feel extra special by pulling out old home videos and creating a montage dedicated just to her. It’s the perfect way to kick off a bachelorette weekend.
Foot the Bill for a Spa Day
Who doesn’t love to be pampered? Brides are under tremendous stress, and offering to pay the way on spa day is a lovely way to show the bride-to-be you care about her.
Send her Pinterest Ideas
Brides are totally consumed by wedding planning and knowing you’re in her corner can give her a big confidence boost. Scroll through Pinterest and shoot her a few ideas that you know are possible. She’ll love that you’re thinking about her.
Take Her for a Drink
If she drinks, offer to grab some margarita’s or a glass or two of wine together. Sometimes all she really wants is a break.
Ask The Bridal Party to Create a Scrapbook
Have each of the bridesmaids create a scrapbook page documenting their favorite moments with the bride. Put it all together in one book and give it to her a day or two before the wedding. She’ll feel incredibly loved, and it doesn’t cost hardly anything to do!
Give Her a Gift Card Every Month Leading up to The Wedding
Tell your friend/bride-to-be that dinner is on you once a month by sending her a gift card to her favorite restaurant. She and the fiancé can dine the night away without stressing about their budget. She’ll feel special and he’ll be thankful.
Simply Ask How She’s Doing
This is a no-brainer, but sometimes wedding planning overwhelms everyone. Ask her if she wants to sit and talk about the wedding and then listen to her. It’s simple but so appreciated by brides.
Create a Honeymoon Care Package
Post-wedding, the last thing a bride wants to do is try to remember to pack the right stuff. Send her off right with a few of her favorite magazines, snacks, lip glosses, eye blinders and maybe even a mini bottle of her favorite liquor.
Write and Deliver a Killer Maid of Honor or Mother of the Bride Speech
Don’t just copy and paste something you see online. Write something that comes from your heart and talk the bride up in the best light. Not only will you be creating lifelong memories if you do, you’ll also make her feel incredibly special.
