We've all imagined that special day on which we say 'I do' to the love our life.
It's supposed to be magical, full of love and a day to be remembered.
But in the whole planning of the big event, a lot can go wrong before you get to the actual wedding day.
When it comes to your bridesmaids, there are a lot of questions you must ask yourself. Who will I choose? How do I know they are the right person? Oh and what will they wear?
Despite the long list of things you have to organise for your special day, there's one simple mistake a lot of couples are making when it comes to their bridesmaids: they're choosing something wrong.
But it's not the actual woman chosen (well, for most of you...).
When it comes to shopping for the bridesmaid dresses, there will be a lot of variety in terms of body shapes and sizes.
Once the right dress is chosen it all seems simple, but a lot of the chosen bridesmaids will suggest the idea of the couple purchasing a different size, so as to 'motivate' the bridesmaid to reach her goal size.
This seems like a great idea in theory, but in practice it doesn't always go to plan.
Life gets in the way and you don't want to, a) let money go to waste if the dress doesn't fit, b) see your bestie disheartened if she doesn't get to her goal, or c) have to reorganize at last minute.
There's enough on your plate.
All in all, it's best to avoid buying a dress that isn't your bridesmaid's size.
Encouragement and motivation are great, but if your bridesmaid wants to set herself a goal like this, then perhaps she can get the dress tweaked by a tailor closer to the wedding date.
