That one (or probably more) special woman is your support system, your pillar of strength. From your blunders to your victories, she has been your biggest fan and your cheerleader.

In fact, your gal pal has possibly been there for you even before your man. So, shouldn’t you be returning the favor? Your wedding day is just the best time to make her feel extra special. Wondering how you can do that? Here are some tips …

Pop the Question

First things first – pop the question. Propose your best friend to stand up for your big day. There’s no better way to show her how much she means to you. Ask her to be by your side as you plan for and celebrate your wedding. Instead of asking her casually over a cup of coffee, infuse some creativity into the request. Make it extra memorable for her. Get her a thoughtful handwritten note with some wine or champagne, or maybe a cute and fun bridesmaid proposal gift, and pop the question.

Once your bride tribe is all set to rock and roll, get shopping. Invite your girl(s) to shop together for wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Make sure you listen to her opinion. This will make her feel more important while keeping her interests on the fore.

Besides, we know it is your big day, and you want everything to be perfect. But allow her personality to shine her way. You can cut some stress and definitely leave the shopping decision to her, provided you don’t have a theme or something similar in mind. For instance, you can decide the color, and she can choose her favorite bridesmaid dress style or vice versa.

This way, she can pick a dress she feels most comfortable, sexy, and confident in. And, nothing is more attractive than a happy bride and her tribe. If you are looking to shop for the best styles, Cocomelody is the place to stop by. We have a wide assortment of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. So you can shop together and also save together.

Be Open about the Budget

Usually, the bridesmaid must cover the entire wedding outfit cost, including alterations, shoes, jewelry, hair and makeup appointments, and transportation. So, it is best to openly talk out the budget before going all extra. Discuss finances right from the beginning, don’t leave it to chance. It can be controversial and awkward to discuss expenses. But, it is certainly an important part of the entire experience. If your budget allows, you can always cover her costs in part or full, whatever pleases you.
