You love your bridesmaids, and you know that they would do anything for you, especially while you’re planning your wedding. However, you are doing great running things yourself, but you don’t want to hurt their feelings.
Planning a wedding can be very stressful, so don’t forget to give yourself a break. You can do this by delegating some of the planning duties to your bridesmaids. If you don’t feel like giving up a lot of the planning duties, check out these three jobs you can give your bridesmaids that will help you alleviate some of your stress.
1. Flower Arrangements
If you plan on making your own flower arrangements, consider employing your bridesmaids to help. This is an especially good idea if your bridesmaids are crafty and have a great understanding of how floral arrangements work. If your bridesmaids aren’t great at arranging flowers, give them a sample of what you are looking for. Show them how to create one arrangement and have them do the rest. This is a great way to have a fun girls day while you plan your wedding.
While you definitely want to pick the color of your bridesmaids dresses, you can have your bridesmaids pick the style. If you want everything to be uniform, consider having your maid of honor pick the style (you should get final approval of course). If your wedding is all about having fun and relaxing, you can always choose the color and have your bridesmaids pick their own styles that best fit their bodies. This will make them more confident on the day of your wedding, and it will help you save the time and the headache of trying to help everyone decide on the same style.
3. Wedding Favors
Just like with the flowers, you can have your bridesmaids put the favors together for your guests. Again, if you want things a certain way, you can give your bridesmaids a quick how-to with one of the favors and have them make the rest. You can make this a girls day along with the flowers as well.
There are a lot of things your bridesmaids can do to help you plan and get ready for your wedding. Consider having them help with the floral arrangements and favors. If you aren’t set on a specific dress style, consider having your maid of honor pick out the bridesmaids dresses.
