Bridesmaids are considered friends of the bride, who make the day colourful while also helping the bride do things that will make her wedding a memorable one.
Having the right bridesmaids is important for a stress-free wedding .
Vlogger and international event planner, Wura Manola discusses how to choose the right bridesmaids by describing the type of friends we have and whether they are suitable to be our bridesmaids or not.
Here are some of her descriptions!
The Diva – This type of bridesmaids demands unnecessary things and she is not willing to go above and beyond. She is a queen and princess in her head and sometimes forgets that it is not her wedding. The verdict: If this person is not family or an old friend, they don’t have to be your bridesmaids
Little Miss Stingy: This bridesmaid does not want to pay for anything. She is the type that will want to do everything her self to save money and this can be frustrating for you as you want everything to be uniform.
The Verdict: This person can frustrate you as the bride, you might not want to choose them as a bridesmaid
The No-shows: We all have that one friend that doesn’t have their priority right, they don’t reply or chats, texts, don’t bother showing up for bridal appointments or meetings
The Verdict: This person should absolutely not be your bridesmaids, you need reliable people
Debbie Downer – These type of bridesmaids are always in a mood, we have to constantly keep asking if they are okay. As a bride your bridesmaids are supposed to bring life to your wedding not suck the life out of it
The Verdict: You shouldn’t babysit anyone, your wedding planning process is already stressful, that;s a no from me
The one everyone hates: We all have that one friend that everyone seems to hate, they are probably not nice and run their mouth and are always caught up in drama
The Verdict: Do not bring that drama to your wedding!
The Jealous one: This type of friend is jealous of you and wants what you have. She might say somethings and do somethings that are unacceptable and questionable.
The Verdict: Run away from this type of friend/bridesmaid. they are not your friend and do not want the best for you!
