Thank you to VersaSpa for sponsoring today's discussion.
This past weekend both of my younger sisters became married women! It was a crazy, insane, fun-filled weekend and thankfully, there were no wedding emergencies! Amiee celebrated her wedding on Saturday and Brittney's nuptials were Monday morning. If there's one thing I took away from this weekend was to really consider who you select as your bridesmaids, especially your Maid of Honor. They can make or break your big day! With a young bride, comes young bridesmaids who may not know what is involved in their newfound duties! Here are just a few things to do to help you be the best bridesmaid you can be!
Show up! Show up to as many of the pre-wedding events as possible. These events are important to your bride and she chose you to be there with her! Also, don't bail out early on the events that are important to the bride…like setting up the church for the wedding, the bachelorette party, bridal shower, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception. Unless you have extenuating circumstances, you should be at all of these events!
Be positive. A lot of things can go wrong leading up to the wedding and on the big day! Your positivity will be appreciated by the bride as she goes into fight or flight mode over the details of the day!
Offer to help. Some brides, like my sisters, wanted to completely DIY their weddings. There are lots of centerpieces, crafts, and various events to create and plan! Utilize any special skills you have to contribute to team bride! I ended up taking photos of everyone getting ready, crafting some decor, and doing hair and makeup!

For Amiee's wedding, all of her bridesmaids have a gorgeous tan glow. Then there was pasty-white me. To ensure I didn't appear ghost-like in Amiee's bridal party photos, I headed to my local Tan Pro USA to try out the VersaSpa spray tanning system.
TIP: If you get streaks or too much color on your body when using a spray tan or self-tanner, apply lemon juice to a cotton ball. Rub the cotton ball on the area you need to fix. Wah-la! Problem solved!
