First of all, congratulations on finding the person you want to spend your life with.
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, so it makes sense to put some serious thought into who will be in your wedding party. Besides the responsibilities of your services providers like Decor, wedding photographer, bridesmaids have responsibilities, so think about the people who will be the best fit for the role as well as your relationship with each person.
We are the most trusted Limpopo Wedding Photographer and trust us, we have seen it all. We have seen unhelpful, frowning, jealous and ever complaining bridesmaids that ended up ruining the bride’s day, and don’t forget, your choice must take into consideration that there will be a camera too :-).
First Things First
Before you start making your list, you need to determine how many bridesmaids you’ll want at your wedding. Here are some things to consider:
- How much space you’ll have at the altar
Most of our black brides, (please read 3 important tips on black bride Makeup) would have the pastor, the parents, the MC and sometimes the whole bridal team on the stage during the blessing. The matrimonial stage will look better when all you see is the people playing an important role at that moment, and mostly is the bride and groom and the wedding officiator. The rest of the crowd will ruin your wedding look and cannot be corrected.
- Cost for each person in your wedding party
Sometimes the bride would like to get name printed morning gowns and slippers as a gift to her bridesmaids, sometimes the bottle of champagne for the morning toast. Bear in mind that there are costs attached to each individual and some venues will charge you per head, so the less the better.
