Your Bridesmaid Duties

Owning a shop has allowed me to see what some brides expect from their bridesmaids. Some are very easy going, even allowing the bridesmaids to choose the dress and sometimes the color of their dress, and some to the extreme expecting their bridesmaids to pay for everything from the dress to their flowers. Some have even provided the bridesmaid with a contract.

In my personal opinion, some brides just go too far. They think that because their friend agreed to be a bridesmaid, that gives them full authority over their finances and time.

The roll of a bridesmaid is to help the bride along with planning where she needs it. Bridesmaids usually go bridal gown shopping with the bride and help pick out the brides perfect dress. The Bridesmaid will also help plan the bacholerrete party along with the other bridesmaids and maid of honor.

If you are asked to be a bridesmaid, be sure you understand what the bride expects from you and the costs that you will incur. If you are a bride, be sure to give your potential bridesmaid what is expected of them. Bridesmaids usually pay for their Bridesmaid dress and shoes. Their hair, Flowers and makeup are usually covered by the bride. If the bride cannot afford the hair and makeup (it can be expensive), then the bridesmaids are given the choice to pay for them or do their own hair and makeup.

Is a Wedding Planner Worth the Cost?

When most brides and groom start planning their wedding the first thing they determine is how much they want to or can spend on the wedding. Once the budget is set the next step is the guest list, because we all know that the more people the more money you will spend.  Brides often opt out of hiring a wedding planner  because they believe that they can save a lot of money by just doing everything themselves, but the truth is that wedding planners can save you a lot more than what you would spend on them. The average wedding planner will make 10% of the wedding budget to take care of all the details of the wedding. If you are planning a $25000 wedding then the cost of the planner would be $2500. Some wedding planners will charge a flat fee if the requirement is just a “day of” coordination.

Now for the question of the day, are wedding planners worth the cost? The answer in most cases is YES! Wedding planners already work with different wedding vendors and receive a “planner” discount on services that the wedding vendors provide, and these savings can be past on to you. In most cases, they also have an establish relationship with said vendors and will trust that they will do a good job on your event. Working with reliable vendors is a luxury you cannot afford to live without when you are planning your wedding. But the main reason I believe wedding planners or event planners are worth the money is because they take a big load off of you. Wedding planners are responsible for making your event a sucess and the stress and time that takes to plan a wedding falls on them and not so much on you. They are there to negotiate with the vendors and make sure everything falls into place so that your event is a complete sucess. So if you are getting married do your research and see if hiring a wedding planner is worth to you.

What to Look for in a Bridal Shop

When you decide to make that purchase for the perfect wedding gown for your upcoming nuptials, be sure to do your homework on the Bridal Shop that you decide to choose. If you are one to do your research you would find horrible review stories of brides treated poorly, wedding gowns not showing up in time, bridal shops not communicating and the list goes on and on.  Here are some things to keep in mind:
1.       First impression is everything. If you walk in to a bridal store and you are not even acknowledged by the staff that might be a sign that they don’t really care. The exception to the rule here is if all the staff is actually working with other clients and don’t want to be rude. But you should still get a “hello, please give me a few minutes” from someone.
2.       If the staff at the bridal store doesn’t ask what your needs are and helps you find and pull some gowns for you to try on then they don’t deserve your business. They should be there to help the bride.
3.       If the bridal store is pushy to make a sale. Sometimes they will tell you how beautiful a wedding gown looks on you even though it is not flattering to your figure.
The bridal store you choose should be friendly, courteous, helpful and easy to deal with. Customer service should be one if not the number one priority for them. If you are considering purchasing your wedding gown from them the least they can do is be nice. They should be honest as to what looks good on you without being rude or insulting you.  Make sure you keep an eye for the signs I listed above before you decide to buy your wedding dress.
