Being asked to be a bridesmaid is always an honor. It tells your friend/family they are loved, appreciated and you want them to be close to you on your special day. A few years back I was asked by a client to define the role of a bridesmaid. I had to think about it, and my response was; be supportive of the bride, hold her hand when she gets nervous, be wary of emotions, and take everything with a pinch of salt.
For a bride, having a group of her nearest and dearest along side her every step of the way is priceless. So when looking for a dress or sari and gift select items that represent you as well as reflect your BFs style.
Listed below are some handy dandy tools to point you in the right direction.
Dress on a Budget
Selecting the perfect dress to match personalities and color schemes is no easy task. You don’t want to pick anything too overpowering or underwhelming. Thanks to many websites there are online tools available to make this process much easier. Our favorite this season is SimpleDress.com. The dresses come from Hong Kong, are inexpensive and customizable.
Saris are beautiful and always look elegant. You can mix and match the colors within a color palette or buy matching saris. A lot of brides don’t have time to travel to India so I suggest support your local business. Work with the shop owner to pick out saris that match your theme. Do this early and you can even have the store order items from India. My favorite stores locally in South Florida are Rupees in Miami and India Fashion in West Palm Beach.
Thanks for being there
You have to give your bridesmaids a sweet gift to say thanks. I have seen everything from Christian Dior earrings to personalized make-up bags. My favorite this season is GigiNewYork.com. Gigi has a huge selection of personalized gifts and beautiful leather products that your bridesmaids will adore. Adamova jaroslava . H cartier bresson . Capoucompswerin
