December doesn't only mean the holidays but it is also a time of the year where many couples get married. Do you love weddings or attending weddings? Well if you ask me, I do! That’s why it is my dream to become a full-pledge wedding and events stylist/coordinator/planner so I can always witness lots of weddings and events. For me a wedding is one of the most beautiful events in someone’s life because they signify a new chapter in two persons’ lives. 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. We didn’t have a bridal entourage during our wedding, since our wedding was a more casual and intimate one, if I had another chance to renew my vows with my husband, I will definitely have bridesmaids the next time around.
The silent rule of thumb in any weddings should be that the most beautiful woman in that occasion should only be the bride & another thing 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 as helping me with the wedding planning. 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.
In Filipino tradition, the bride and groom pay for the attires of the entire wedding party. But since times are quite hard, I guess the entourage can share at least half of the wedding attire expenses, which could in turn be your gift for the couple. If the couple has a limited budget they can always opt for cheap and/or affordable dresses out there that can also be spectacular bridesmaid dresses.

Browsing through www.promtimes.co.uk 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. But who knows, my husband and I might renew our vows a couple of years from now and if that happens we will probably have a grander wedding complete with a bridal party... :-)
Also, 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 theme of your wedding. And if you have noticed, some of the designs of the dresses above can still be worn in other occasions.
