Why to have bridesmaids

Have you ever thought about the presence of bridesmaids at your wedding but you don’t really know why you should decide on them? If so, making this decision will certainly be easier thanks to presenting you their role, responsibilities and modern attitude to this subject.

Brief history

The roots of tradition of women’s entourage of the Bride date back to very distant times. They come from superstitions and customs of people living in them, among other things. In Ancient Rome, in order for the wedding to be recognised, 10 witnesses were required to be present at the so-called “completion of the marriage certificate”. This fact can be associated with the presence of today’s bridesmaids and best men during the ceremony. What is more, they had to dress in the same way as the Newlyweds. The aim was to confuse all evil spirits or jealous opponents of the marriage. It was believed that thanks to this the ceremony wasn’t threatened by any danger. It wasn’t until the Victorian era that the role of bridesmaids started to get closer to the one we know nowadays. However, there were still some superstitions connected with the prosperity of the wedding. The women’s entourage accompanied the Bride on the way to the altar carrying a bunch of different kinds of herbs, such as garlic or rosemary. The reason was, of course, the same as about 1 500 years ago: the deterrence of sinister spirits. Fortunately, today’s bouquet is mostly composed of beautifully fragrant flowers, right? 😊

Bridesmaid duties

Duties of bridesmaids are a very individual matter. They depend on Bride’s attitude and relationship she has with her girlfriends, sisters or cousins. It is said that bridesmaids should, among others: organize bachelorette party, advise on choosing a wedding dress, help the Bride with dressing up on the wedding day, be at the blessing, make sure that the dress and veil are not trampled on, prepare rice, rose petals or anything else to sprinkle Newlyweds, help with collecting gifts and flowers, show lost wedding guests the way to their seats, and have at hand “first aid kit” – that is all women’s accessories, for example in case of blurring of the Bride’s make-up or ripped tights. The list is quite long and demanding? First of all, some of these duties can be taken over by the maid of honor, and secondly, a well-organized Bride can handle some of the tasks herself, or she can always commission them to the professional wedding planners from The Magical Events. As a result, a huge burden will be lifted from Newlyweds’ and bridesmaids’ shoulders.

Bridesmaid dresses

After deciding on the presence of bridesmaids during the wedding you will have to think also about their dresses. Attitudes are very different but one thing is certain – under no circumstances should the Bride force her bridesmaids to wear dresses that they don’t like, or feel bad in them, just for desired effect in the picture. Women’s entourage doesn’t have to pick identical dresses (after all, the shapes of ladies may be different), even more so that there are many ideas for matching their outfits to the Bride. It may be the same cut, but in different colours, the same colour and cut but in different shades, the same colour but different styles, etc. There are so many possibilities that you will surely be able to satisfy everyone 😊 Let every bridesmaid express herself, because that is what is beautiful!

Modern attitude

The modern attitude towards the topic of bridesmaids opens up many doors and leaves a wide field to show off. Everything depends on the Bride’s personality. Nowadays more and more often one asks a man to be her “bridesmaid”, or one’s grandma! It certainly has its own unique charm. Not to mention anymore the dresses, which don’t have to be identical, or obligations, which don’t have to be burdened with bridesmaids at all. The most important is the simple presence of these few closest people to us before and during the wedding (the number of them is not imposed in advance and doesn’t have to be even at all). Emotional support and sharing this unique moment “behind the scenes” is priceless and we think that is why in Poland we more and more often decide on having bridesmaids at our side. So you shouldn’t reject this option immediately because there is a lot of sense behind it.
