It is truly an honor to be asked to accept a role as bridesmaid! The bride cares about you so much that she can’t imagine planning her wedding without you and would love to have you by her side.
I’ve taken a few things from my own wedding experience and paired them with things I have read in brides’ forums and what my brides have shared with me…
I scoured Pinterest for days trying to come up with a cute way to ask you to be a part of my day. No matter how much time I put into looking, I still couldn’t find something that helped me express how truly honored I will be if you say yes!
When I ask your opinion on something wedding related, I really do want to know. Please don’t just agree with whatever you think I want to hear. We’re BFFs – I can handle it!
If you are uncomfortable in your dress, please let me know. There will be tons of photos of you taken on the wedding day and I want you to feel beautiful!
Please keep me in check and let me know if I’m having a Bridezilla moment (and I’m sorry in advance if I do have one).
I didn’t realize how time consuming planning a wedding would be and I’m sure I ramble on about our wedding way too much. Please remember I love you and want to hear about your life as well!
I have so many deadlines to meet and can really use your help! Please try to get back to me asap to set up a time to look at dresses, answer that text I sent you about your hair and makeup, etc.
I really appreciate you sharing how you did things for your own wedding and will take it into consideration, but please don’t be offended if I don’t do things exactly the way you did.
I’m so honored and appreciative that you’d like to throw a bridal shower for me! I know whatever you plan will be perfect and I can’t wait! (Please don’t expect me to plan or pay for the entire party though, that’s pretty hurtful).
I know it’s tough to have to work with the other girls sometimes, but it would be a lot to me if you could try to push through it for me. All of my bridesmaids are so special to me and I’d love if you gave them a chance.
Lastly, I want you to know how much it means to me that you accepted this role and will be standing by my side on my wedding day. I can’t imagine not being able to share this time with you. Love you!
