How To Choose The Perfect Bride Squad

For brides across the world, choosing their bridesmaids is a top priority when it comes to planning their dream wedding. But before you propose to your bridesmaids, we recommend going through the motions to truly understand who you are picking to stand by your side on such a special occasion and if they are the right choice in the long run.

Before even considering who to ask to be your bridesmaid, we recommend trying to envision your dream wedding. If you are going for a traditional white wedding, generally three to five bridesmaids are the norm. For more relaxed rustic weddings, the number is more like one or two key bridesmaids.

Additionally, you should discuss the number of groomsmen your betrothed envisioned having by his side. If he’s come up with a number twice yours, perhaps you can make a compromise and meet in the middle to ensure both sides of the bridal party match and nobody is left walking down the aisle or dancing by themselves.

Before proposing to your bride squad, I recommend thinking long and hard about the reasoning behind your choices. For instance, are you scraping together whoever’s available simply to match the number of groomsmen? Are you just including a cousin because she’s family?

It’s your wedding – your bride squad should be perfect.
