It’s wedding season, and Bridal Christmas is in full swing. With this being the busiest time of the year for the wedding industry we all know that ambitious brides are running around making plans for their big days. For those who are not aware of what Bridal Christmas is here is a quick overview. Bridal Christmas is from January to April, and this time period is when many brides plan their weddings for the summer and fall seasons to come. This includes venue planning, wedding dress buying, designing wedding cakes, etc. What chaos!
So, what does this mean for the maid of honor, and the bride’s bridesmaids? We all know that as much as you love her, you poor souls are dealing with the bride’s stress and demands. It is imperative that you give her a day/night to relax before her big day, aka her bachelorette party. One night stress free to celebrate with her friends is just what she needs!
Here are some fun ideas for your bridal party before helping your bride down the aisle!
