This week is dedicated to the guests, so we keep going with the maid of honor!
It seems you are a lot to form a gang of maids of honor instead of the two bridesmaids as the classical way. It’s actually very funny, trust me, to see how people are very proud and ready to help when they have a specific role to play in the wedding .
A group of girlfriends next to you and some clothes like if you were in a school dancing performance, doesn’t it sound like a dream? But, be careful : it’s not the right time to look lousy (especially if your maids of honor are single, they may want to meet the groom’s cousin at the wedding), otherwise they will be mad with you for years. They are your best friends, you do not want to embarass them, remember Rachel at Barry’s wedding…
So forget the American tradition where every girl wears the same dress, otherwise it could turn to drama, especially if the outfit is expensive. Give them the freedom to chose their dress in their best fitting color, it doesn’t need to be anymore complicated.
On the other hand, accessories will be very successful! You just have to wear identical and noticeable accessories so the guests can immediately identify your dream team.
We worked with the jewelry brand Bala Boosté imagining for them and for you a shoot where maids of honor were allowed to chose their favorite dress but with identical accessories (necklace, headband, bracelets) or different accessories in matching colors (earrings and rings). And it worked very well!
You can afford a small shopping trip to stores such as Bala Boosté to do this kind of gift to your bridesmaids. It’s also a funny way to thank them to be there for the most important day in your life.
