He finally asked and you of course said yes!!! The people you call right after your mother, are the people who you have short listed to be your bridesmaids. They will squeal and whoop and come right over with a bottle of something to celebrate! That’s your bridal squad. Extravaganza Wedding Consultant, Ntombi answers your bridesmaid questions. How do you choose a bridesmaid? Planning a wedding is an incredibly stressful time for a bride. A bridesmaid should try alleviating any tasks. They will be happy for you and your hubby, they support your union and more over they will be an up-close witness as you take a partner for the rest of your life. Choose someone who you love and who loves you right back - someone who has your very best interest at heart at this life-changing time. You will be creating a wealth of new memories with these people during this time. Choose carefully. There is no right or wrong way of going about how you choose your bridesmaids, how you delegate tasks and what costs you are supposed to cover. There is no law… but that also doesn’t mean as a bride you are the law. How many bridesmaids can I have? As many as you want! Keep in mind your budget. If you ask someone to be a bridesmaid you will both be incurring costs for her final look on the day, whether you cover just her hair and make up, or her dress and accessories. Costs are a huge element in deciding whether your friend will accept your request to be your bridesmaid.
