Bridesmaids - everything you need to know

Bridesmaids are an essential part of weddings and it is very important to choose them correctly. Its origin dates back to biblical times. They are the women you trust the most and you want them to share your wedding day with you. They will help you with the preparations, you will celebrate your bachelorette party with them and they will be with you at all times. Therefore, I am going to tell you what they do, what options you have to dress them and most importantly: how to choose your bridesmaids.

What do the bridesmaids do?

First of all, the bridesmaids will make your life easier both before and during your ceremony. One of their main functions is to help you with the wedding preparations. Usually the more bridesmaids you have, the more hands you have to help. However, you can have only one if it is what you prefer and what you feel more like . The number of bridesmaids is chosen by you. Of course, among those preparations is helping you choose your wedding dress . They will be the ones to accompany you to the store and give you their opinion on the suits you try on. The decision is yours in the end, but having friends and family who advise you always helps to affirm your decision and avoid doubts later. Most of the brides who come to the Mimètik atelier are accompanied by their relatives, friends and bridesmaids. The truth is that I love living that experience with them, it's beautiful to see how excited they are when they see their friend dressed as a bride. And I have also seen the other case! The bride who accompanies her bridesmaids so that they find the perfect dress with which to be in harmony. And as it could not be missing, they will be in charge of organizing a good bachelorette party for you . You can choose if you want to have something to see or let them give you a surprise. You just express what you would like to do, and let them see that you have a good time that day. In addition to this, a good bridesmaid will help you with everything you need on your wedding day . They will be there to help you get dressed, organize the guests and make sure everything goes according to plan. And, the main bridesmaid also has another function: to give an impressive speech that brings tears to the eyes! She's your best friend for a reason, right?

How do the bridesmaids have to be dressed?

That depends on your tastes. However, there are two options widely used by brides today. The first is to choose a dress and have all the ladies wear the same one . It is not the most recommended because each person is a world. One of your ladies can look great in straps, and another one will make a horrible figure. Although it is very attractive visually, it is likely that one or more of your ladies will not be comfortable with their dress. The second option is to choose a color or range of colors according to the decoration of the event, and each bridesmaid chooses a dress with that color but the cut and shape they want. This option is great , since at sight everything will be uniform, and each lady will wear the dress that best suits her. There is also another option that, personally, is my favourite: that each one reflects her own style within a unit thanks to Mimètik Bcn's convertible dresses for bridesmaids . With these dresses, your bridesmaids will get a unit that will be beautiful, but in which each one will be able to see their own style reflected. As they are multiposition dresses, you can place the top of the dress in the way that best reflects your personality. In addition, you can also play with the range of colors, which will give a super nice touch of color to your wedding.

Who do I choose to be my bridesmaids?

And finally, the big question: who do I choose as a maid of honor? There are several traditions, such as that the bridesmaids must be single, that they must be the age of the bride or that they must be family. But you know what? It's your wedding and you can do whatever you want with it. I mean, if you want your bridesmaids to be your 20 best friends, you can, and if you don't want bridesmaids at your wedding, you can too. As advice, choose your best friends and the women you trust the most. They can be your best friend from childhood, your favorite aunt and your neighbor with whom you share adventures. It does not matter, as long as you are comfortable in their company and, of course, that they are important people for you with whom you feel supported and accompanied . As you can see, the question of bridesmaids is something super personal. Whatever you decide, I am sure that this will be a great day where you will all create precious memories that will last forever.
