7 reasons why bridesmaids are really important

There’s no doubt that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. With all the planning, preparation and stress that goes into a wedding ceremony, having a group of bridesmaids to fall back on can be a godsend. Your bridesmaids will be the girls you’re proud to have standing beside you when tying the knot. Here are seven reasons why we think bridesmaids are massively important to your wedding day.

Completing your theme

Bridesmaid dresses are one of the most exciting aspects of any wedding. Kitting out your bridal party in the right dress has the potential to enhance your own wedding dress, as well as deepening the impact of your wedding theme. For instance, a delightful dark orange maxi dress can be complemented by a golden autumn theme, while a playful pink lace design suits summer down to the ground. Ultimately, if you get the bridesmaid dress right, your ceremony will look exquisite.

Advice and guidance

The planning that goes into a wedding can be incredibly stressful. Even on the big day, brides worry about things going wrong or parts of the ceremony they may have overlooked. Bridesmaids are there to keep your head cool when you can feel those nerves bubbling up. With a group of your best friends behind you, the wedding journey becomes a lot easier.


We all need some inspiration now and again. When you’re planning your wedding, it’s easy to get stuck in your own head. Sometimes an outside opinion is the tonic you need when you’re hitting a brick wall. Let your bridal party chip in with some suggestions and the planning process will be much smoother sailing. At the end of the day, your close friends will know what you like best.

Bridal party

A hen do is the last hurrah of pre-married life and you’ll want it to be a night to remember. Who better to leave it to than your bridesmaids? Your bridesmaids will know you better than anyone else when it comes to a night out, so sit back, relax and leave the planning to them. Whether you’re going abroad or planning a pub crawl, the party will be your last goodbye to pre-married life.

Making memories

The emotion of your wedding day will stick in your mind forever. On such an important day, having your best friends around you will make those memories shine even brighter throughout your life. Friendships come and go, but the girls you pick as your bridesmaids are with you for the long haul. With your best friends beside you, you’ll have shared some deep, meaningful moments together.
