For Tuesday Tip Day we have some tips and suggestions for the lovely ladies asked to stand beside the bride on her big day. A lot goes into planning and preparing for the wedding day, so we wanted to provide a few tips to ensure the day goes as smoothly as possible.

1. Steam your dress the day before. You want to make sure you are ready to go the morning of the wedding so you are able to help the bride.

2. Stay hydrated! Remember to drink a lot of water and eat. The day flies by and you want to make sure you have something in your stomach…. plus, no one wants to be the fainting bridesmaid!

3. Don’t lock your knees. Shift your weight back and forth both in pictures and when standing during the ceremony.

4. Walk slowly down the aisle. It might feel awkward, but usually your adrenaline kicks in and you want to make sure you aren’t racing down the aisle.

5. Wear comfortable shoes… it will be a long day.

6. {This one is for the Maid/Matron of Honor} Make sure to practice your speech in front of someone, it will help with the nerves. A good reminder is to always keep it short and sweet…we recommend no more than 5 minutes.

7. Last but not least, be flexible! Plans change and you may need to make adjustments here and there. Make sure to stay calm and roll with the punches.
