Top 5 Reasons Why Your Best Friend Should Wear One Of Those Bridesmaid Dresses

Apr 5, 2008
Now you're getting married and shopping for one of those lovely bridesmaid dresses for your maid-of-honor. But have you chosen your best friend to be with you on your most special day?

Your Soul Sister

A long time ago, you and your best friend passed a bridal shop and swooned over the bridal and bridesmaid dresses on display. That got both of you vowing that you'll be each other's bridesmaid when the big day comes.

You've grown together, shared the same crushes and pet peeves, and both of you spent endless hours listening to Whitney Houston belting out "I Will Always Love You", jabbering about the latest Grunge fashion and power bead bracelets, and agonizing over getting tattoos. When you started growing breasts, you became all agog at the prospect of womanhood, make-up, and boys. The world became suddenly stimulating when boys started to notice you both. You again plotted and planned your wedding day and agreed to get those adorable wedding and bridesmaid dresses at the bridal salon uptown.

Here are the reasons why you should get your best friend as your bridesmaid:

* She understands your quirks.
* She won't let you down.
* She'll do your bidding, as always.
* She'll crack jokes when you are feeling nervous.
* She knows what to do just by looking at you.

Your Best Friend Or Your Sister?

To have your younger sister as your bridesmaid is fine, but nothing beats having your best friend as your bridesmaid. Your best friend knows your quirks and she'll prove to be the best company when shopping for your wedding gown and helping you with the wedding details.

If your best friend is more organized, reliable, and cheerful than your spoiled little sister, by all means, convince your mom that your best friend should occupy the prestigious position as your maid-of-honor, while your sister can join the entourage as a second lady-in-waiting. This will keep the peace in the family, and happily, you'll have your best friend with you throughout the hectic whirl of wedding planning and rifling through wedding and bridesmaid dresses.

Ask your fiance about his groomsman, you won't be surprised to hear that he is getting his best friend, too, so that makes two of you getting best friends to make your wedding day extra memorable and fun.

The Rock of Gibraltar

With your best friend around to calm you down and serve as referee when things heat up, you can always rely on her steadying presence. She'll always want the best for you and, of course, she'll make sure that both of you look stunning on the special day. But you can be sure that she'll be the calm one on the wedding day.

She'll be up early to help you with your wedding gown and assure you that everything will run smoothly. Until you're ready, that's the time she'll primp herself up and don the dress you've selected from a rack of bridesmaid dresses.

Give your best friend her due. Give her a chance to bask in reflected glory by being your bridesmaid and deck her in the best of those bridesmaid dresses you can afford. Being your best friend, she'll split the cost with you. That's another good reason why you should get your best friend as your bridesmaid.
