Now that the man of your dreams has FINALLY asked the question you have been dying to hear, you can’t wait to brag to all your friends about you saying yes. Usually, a new bride’s first reaction is to take to Facebook to post about her engagement and quickly change her “relationship status”. Others take to Instagram and post multiple pictures of their new ring. A new bride can expect a ton of feedback and a lot of congrats from all her friends. But sooner than later you will get that awkward question from your friends “So… who are your bridesmaids going to be?” or worse “I’m I going to be your maid of honour?”
Now how to you deal with this newly found pressure? The average amount of bridesmaid is usually 4-6, so you are going to have to lower the amount of friends on this list. I know of a lot of girls that think they have more than 10 friends and don’t know how to choose it correctly.
So how do you go about selecting your bridesmaids? Well, you will need to sit down and write all the pros and cons of your friends. When you start writing down the names on paper you will automatically start to have a better feel for who your bridesmaids should be. From there you can begin a process of elimination to a point where you will have 4-6 bridesmaids.
Once you have your list then it will be time to decide on the maid of honor. This usually comes down to 2-3 girls. Usually in tie-breakers the win should go to a relative. It’s a much easier and understanding thing to do to pick your sister over a friend you have had for a while. If she is a true friend, she will understand.
Then after you have decided on your bridesmaids then the best part will come which is to select a wedding dress and also your bridesmaid dress. What we recommend that you do, is to set a meeting with all your friends and lay down all the options. Be open to their input and you will probably select the perfect dress for you and for them.

All in all, selecting your bridesmaid can be a very hard task, but you must keep your cool and don’t be afraid to hurt any of your friends feelings. This is your special day and you must remember that, so don’t worry about hurting someone’s feelings as long as you conduct yourself in a mature matter. Remember that if someone reacts in a mean way because you did not select them as a bridesmaid, they probably were not a good friend to begin with. So let the selection process take place!
