Tips on Having Your Bridesmaids D-day Ready!
Make Up Your Friends Will Love
Being a bridesmaid often requires a long task list that takes a lot of time, money, and effort to accomplish. Not only can the job be a nightmare in the months leading up to the big day, but it can also feel like you're working as a wedding vendor on the big day. Consider how you can be there for your bridesmaids in a major way while you organize the details of your wedding day, so they can be there for you with full support. Have you considered what kind of makeup they would want to wear down the aisle? There are some lovely bridesmaid makeup ideas for you and your friends to consider.
For instance, the use of smoky blending techniques isn't confined to plain black shadows. The depth that nude tones add to the smoky eye effect is enticing. With charcoal-hued shadows, nude or neutral lipstick is a match made in heaven. The result is glamorous without being overdone. And then, there’s the shift from gold to black makeup colours, which is just amazing. The specks of gold catch the light nicely, while the darker outer edges are somber and enticing. Rose gold is a universally attractive colour that goes with a variety of skin tones and bridesmaid dress colours. It also looks great on the lips, as a highlighter or blush, and on the eyes.
The Perfect Bridesmaid Dress and Nail Enamel Combo
If there's one essential accessory for a bridesmaid, it's a freshly painted nail. A shiny manicure is perfect for finishing bridesmaid dresses.
Keeping Your Tribe Happy
Your bridesmaids will be in their dresses for eight or more hours, with most of that time spent dashing around, posing for photos, and dancing the night away. Choose a bridesmaid dress with pockets (sometimes even hidden pouches) so that they have a place to store Kleenex, cosmetics, and their phone while moving and grooving. We propose sturdy, stable, comfortable shoes to ensure that the girls can be up and playing around without their feet pulsing in pain.
Even if you want your bridesmaids to wear a certain pair of shoes or a high-heeled style for photos, allow them to take them off when the photos or the ceremony is complete. Allow sufficient time for the bridal party to rest, sit down, and, most importantly, eat throughout the day if you're planning an early start. Allow unlimited snacks to be available throughout the day to protect your pals from hangovers. Choose healthy snacks that aren't too sweet and will leave your bridesmaids feeling full and energized.

- A Scratch Card - Make a personalized card with a scratch-off piece for a fun game. In the envelope, put a penny for scratching. Your pals will see a message asking them, "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" beneath the scratch-off portion of the card. You, on the other hand, have hit the jackpot.
- A Wine Night- Gather your bridesmaids for a wine tasting or drinks night at your house. Defer the final ready-to-drink selection to the end of the evening: a delectable white or red varietal with a bespoke label that jokingly invites guests to join your wedding party. Needless to say, the rest of the night will be spent toasting yourselves!
- Gift Box - A basic gift box stocked with wedding-related goods is a safe—and thoughtful—bet if quirky or offbeat gestures aren't your thing. Fill the box with a handwritten message from you, a little bottle of champagne, nail polish, sheet masks, and other sweet goodies.
- Afternoon Tea - As you and your friends sit down for afternoon tea, put on your most feminine floral print dresses. Along with cookies and whipped cream, petit fours, and cucumber sandwiches, tell your friends and family how much they mean to you—and how much it will mean for them to be there with you as you say "I do." What's the best part? Sparkling wine is frequently served with afternoon tea.
- Say It With Flowers - Sending your bridal party floral arrangements you believe they'll like is another approach to ask with flowers. Make sure to inquire about their preferred method of obtaining a "package." In the accompanying card, write the inquiry "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?"
What to Look for in a Box.
Think about what your wedding party needs and might use, in addition to the more frivolous items that surprise, delight, and pamper them. Also, don't forget that personalization takes your regular gift box to the next level. A gift box personalized with that person in mind is more unique than a card you pick up on your way out of the cashier. A little effort will help a lot and your loved ones will appreciate the time you spend making them feel special.
