Before you say YES

You know it is coming, your good friend gets engaged and shortly there after you are asked to be part of the bridal party.  Before you say "YES", take a few things into consideration.

  •  You will have to spend money!!  Maybe on something you don't love, and can NEVER wear again.  If you are lucky, you may love it and be able to wear it again but don't count on it.
  • Odds are you will have to work with others.  A bridal party can be a mix of siblings, cousins, childhood friends, roommates & you may not all get along.  Don't allow this to EVER be an issue for the couple getting married.
  • Remember your role in the wedding.  If you are the Maid of Honor or Best Man, you have responsibilities. If you aren't sure what they are, then ASK.  You will be helping put together a shower, or a jack n' jill and bachelor and bachelorette parties.  Other bridal party members should offer their assistance. Help could be offered money wise, time wise, or in a labor sense. 
  • There will be certain weekends, nights and other times that will be designated for the wedding.  It is a given, between engagement parties, the showers, and just helping, there will be times that you.

Be honest with your friends, if you don't have the funds to be a part of the wedding, or you know that your business is sending you on business trip every other month, say something.  Being honest right up front will ease things for everyone!!! Once you say yes, then be the best friend you can be. 

Just a few friendly tips!  :)
