Because Friends can become Family too!

Of course no wedding is complete without the couples’ friends and family members surrounding them – they are arguably the life of the party! Without friends marriage looks like a black and white album or a cuisine without any taste. They are needed there to tell all the many memories there are to share, the bad jokes and the embarrassing stories – what a perfect way to share another huge step in life. Having them at your side is the best way to spend time with your friends because of course you will miss them when married life kicks in!, so make the most of the mischievous times with them.

You might have heard and experienced that a friend’s presence will add a tinge of happiness and laughter. Her/his presence will have a sparkle which will illuminate your wedding. However, be weary that friends do have a grey shade so be careful to not make a mistake in inviting them.

Here are some tips through which you could be a perfect friend on your friend’s wedding

1. Don’t wait to be asked for help – Be pro-active

As a friend you have many duties and requirements that are to be fulfilled, and as a true friend you will do these without being asked too. Your instinct as a friend is to just take part, and contribute as much as you can- giving a helping hand to the family members to ensure the wedding ceremonies are complete smoothly without the concern of stress or tension. Be the friend that is prepared to go above and beyond shouting ´wait i will do it´to as much as you can. Ultimately this is what friends are for, right? to be there in the time of need, and what is not  a greater time of need than during your wedding? so guys, help avoid any disasters and long faces, help in all activities from who to add on to the guest list to making sure the to-be bride/groom have eaten.

2. Shop until you drop 

Now girls who doesn´t love a bit of shopping? shop until you drop is our motto, however bear in mind that this is no ordinary shopping trip, this is the shopping trip of a lifetime. Buying all wedding related items is a huge thing, and for a nervous bride or groom having a friend at their side is just what they need! ideally you want to try and be the bride’s cheerleader, secretary and bursar all rolled into one. When it comes to outfit shopping get a feel for what styles she does and does not like, any accoutrements that might be up her alley, and more.  You may even want to write down the characteristics of each dress on a piece of paper, along with pros and cons,  during the actual trying-on period. doing all of this will surely help take a wight off of their shoulders! Do not panic ladies and gentlemen, Don’t panic here is the link for their perfect bridal dress How to choose the perfect wedding dress. Also be sure to not put your own personal choices into the mix: “There is a difference between not liking a dress because it’s of not your taste, and not liking it because it’s not right for the bride, “Just be careful how you word it”.
