Has your significant other finally got their act together & popped the question?! Yes! Time to start planning the wedding. So exciting! There’s so many things to think about when planning a wedding, from finding the perfect dress & location to sorting out the music, decor and food, but one of the most fun decisions to make is which of your best guys/gals will end up being your bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are there to help make the wedding planning process a little less-stressful and a lot more fun. So why not show them how much you care by shining a spotlight on them and getting them some special treats. We’ve put together a list of our favourite ways to pamper our bridesmaids and how to get your bridesmaid styling right!

Special gifts for your bridesmaids
You’ve been through thick and thin together and now it’s time to have your dearest friends close to you as you say yes to your new spouse. This truly is one of the most special days of your life, and getting to spend it with your closest friends alongside you adds to the significance of the occasion. However, something as momentous as asking your dearest friends to be your bridesmaids deserves an extra special invite. So, let us inspire you!
Make it personal! When it comes to your bridesmaids you wanna make it personal. We love gifting them personalised jewellery, because let’s be honest, you can’t go wrong with jewellery! Add a lovely personal touch to your bridesmaid gift by choosing pieces that can be personalised to each individual, whether that be with the initials of their name, their zodiac sign or their birth month, there are so many glorious options for personalised jewellery! We love the idea of choosing a piece that will suit their bridesmaids’ dress so they can wear it on the special day, and add even more of an emotional touch to the jewellery. But also go for something wearable, so your guys & gals can wear it whenever they want. Trust us, your bridesmaids will love these pieces for years to come & always be reminded of your beautiful friendship whenever they wear it.
Self-care packages for bridesmaids
If you’re anything like us you’ve probably been dreaming of your wedding day since you were a little girl! Making bridal mood boards, pretending to marry your best friend, making rings out of aluminium foil and all the other semi-embarrassing things that you’d rather stay secret….Well, now it’s time for the real deal. And you can finally start assembling your bridal squad. Ever since you let them know about your engagement, they’ve screamed with you when seeing your rock for the first time, cried as you said “yes to the dress”, eaten too much cake at your cake tasting, planned the most amazing bachelorette party where you made some of your most memorable memories together & experienced all the highs ‘n lows of your wedding prep with you. Now just ahead of the Big Day we think it’s time to treat your squad to a bit of pampering. Why not create a nice pampering package to deliver to their homes, or if you’re in for a bit of fun ask them all to come to yours for a pampering night. In any case, this is all about making your squad feel special and zen, and if you ask us a unique self-care package is definitely the way to go. We love the idea of including a nice beauty tool such as a gua sha stone or face roller for a perfectly natural glow and some much needed stress relief. Add a little lip makeup, like a nourishing lip oil or a pretty lipstick that perfectly suits her skin, and finally, if you really want to go all out, complete the package with a gorgeous perfume. Check out our perfume finder to find the perfect perfume for her and she’ll have a signature scent to wear to the wedding and beyond. Before you know it you’ve put together a gorgeously indulgent self-care package for your special peeps!
Mix 'n match bridesmaids outfits
While the wedding gown is absolutely number one in the wedding style stakes, your bridesmaids dresses definitely deserve second place on the list. Thankfully the days of over-the-top taffeta cupcake confections are long gone, and slinky, simple & elegant bridesmaids dresses are now totally on-trend. As a bride you’re probably completely on top of the full look of your wedding, so too the bridesmaids dresses. Afterall, you want your girls to look and feel their best on your special day. Not sure what the best cut for their figure out be? Check out our blog on which dresses suit my figure best and they’re sure to choose the right dress for their shape. Make the hunt for the perfect bridesmaids dress a fun event and take the whole gang shopping! That way you’ll know for sure that the dresses will match your wedding dress and the wedding colour scheme, and your bridesmaids will find a dress they love and that suits them. Win-win! It’s important to remember that your bridesmaids are part of your bridal squad but they’re also individual & unique people, why not highlight that by letting them wear different dresses. As long as the patterns or colours match your bridal gang should look good to go. Anyway, mixing and matching bridesmaids dresses just so happens to be majorly on-trend, and if that doesn’t convince you we don’t know what will! Some bridesmaids might not feel entirely comfortable in a dress, and in that case we think a women’s suit or jumpsuit would look amazing! Super cool, unique and stylish, it’s the perfect alternative. If you’re hoping to create a cohesive bridesmaids look with mis-matched outfits, simply choose accessories that match. Go for the same nude heels or other matching shoes and give each bridesmaids a matching hair accessory, like a pretty beaded headband or pearl hair clips. Matching jewellery, such as the Shapes & Pearls pieces, would also look amazing if you ask us! So there ya go, mixing the outfits but matching accessories is sure to give you the ultimate bridal squad look! You’re gonna have the most amazing & memorable time with your bridal fam!
