Some people elope. They jet away to the Italian countryside and under a beautiful sunset on a balcony with a breathtaking backdrop they say their ‘I do’s’. Others take another route. They invite family and friends, maybe it’s hundreds, maybe twenty at a lovely garden wedding. Whatever the count, whatever the path, you may or may not have someone special by your side. Someone who helps the perfect day flow with ease, or comforts you with the bumps and juts. Your bridesmaids. Movies have been made about these vital wedding components. They’re at your beck and call bringing you food, helping with hair, getting you dressed, supplying forgotten mascara, setting up the reception room, breaking said reception room down. They make sure you don’t drink too much the day of, and more than enough the night before. They’re your loyal companions, comrades in arms with kindred spirits you were born with, or met along the path. Whoever they may be, if they’re true to the bridesmaid code, they want the same thing. To make sure your day is all you dreamed it would be. And so you’re thankful! They do so much for you –perhaps even in your wrath and rage—and you want to show them how much you appreciate all they do –despite your wrath and rage.
