I love weddings! for me they are one of the most beautiful events in someone’s life because they signify a new chapter in a person’s life. It’s a celebration of two people’s love for each other having their loved ones as a witness as they vow to love, care and be patient for one another for as long as they live.
Although the attention of wedding should be central to the bride and groom, we must also take in to consideration the people that surround them that made them who they are today. That is I think the foremost reason why a bridal party is included in any wedding. Although when I got married, I didn't have any entourage at all because our wedding was just a small and intimate one. We didn't also have any formal processional march during our wedding ceremony. Even though we didn't have a bridal party during our wedding, on the other hand, I have experienced being flower girl, a bridesmaid and a maid of honor (and then eventually a bride *winks*). It is such an awesome experience to be part of a bridal party and being invited to be one should and always be an honor. This is because you will know how a couple values you as a friend or a family member.
The bridesmaids are members of the bride's party in a wedding. A bridesmaid is typically a young woman, and often a close friend or sister. She attends to the bride on the day of a wedding or marriage ceremony. Traditionally, bridesmaids were chosen from unwed young women of marriageable age. The principal bridesmaid, if one is so designated, may be called the chief bridesmaid or maid of honor if she is unmarried, or the matron of honor if she is married. Although many exceed the minimum, the bridesmaids' required duties are very limited. They are required to attend the wedding ceremony and to assist the bride on the day of the wedding. Bridesmaids in Europe and North America are often asked to assist the bride with planning the wedding and a wedding reception. In modern times, a bridesmaid often participates in planning wedding-related events, such as a bridal shower or bachelorette party, if there are any
The silent rule of thumb in any weddings should be that the most beautiful woman in that occasion should only be the bride & another things is that no one is allowed to wear white other than her. But if you’ll ask me, if I had an entourage during my wedding, I would want to make them feel special too, as a way of saying thank you, for making me feel special as well. A way of showing gratitude to your bridesmaids is by helping them choose the bridesmaid gowns or dresses that they'll wear on your wedding.
Once you have chosen your wedding dress and wedding style, you will then want to work on outfitting your entire wedding party. If you can afford to shoulder the expenses of their attire then why not do it as a gesture of gratitude. But if you’re sharing the expenses with them; let them have a little freedom on what they would want to wear so that they will also be as lovely as you are on your wedding day. I am fortunate enough that on several occasions that I became part of a bridal party, the brides took good care of their entourage and we were as pretty as they were on their weddings.

Browsing through their extensive selection of bridesmaid dresses I found these pretty designs that I would have chosen for my bridesmaids had I decided to have an entourage during my wedding.

Btw, choosing dresses for your bridesmaids doesn't have to end up buying or having them made in uniform style. Always take consideration each of your bridesmaid’s body type and their own personal style without veering away from the entire concept or theme of your wedding. And if you have noticed, some of the designs of the dresses above can still be worn in other occasions.
Most of the time we tend to neglect our bridal party and focus more on other details of the wedding. We forget those people who are the sole reason of our existence and those have helped mold us to who we are. And those who will truly love, care and support the newlyweds and won’t care a bit if the wedding was Pinterest-worthy or not. So for brides and future brides out there this is a call to you to start the revolution of ensuring that your bridal party shines with you and your groom on your wedding day.
