Bridesmaids are more than just friends and sisters - they're LIFE JACKETS!

Being asked to be a bridesmaid is a wonderful honour, and one that most girls feel incredibly lucky to experience.  However, if you’ve never been one before, or don’t know much about the formalities of a wedding, it can seem a slightly daunting task. Bridesmaids are chosen because the bride knows she can count on her girls to keep her calm during her big day as well as handling major wedding details.  Bridesmaids calming influence may be tested to the limit, as everyone will be excited and perhaps a little emotional about the coming events.  Their duties and roles are extremely important and needed and well appreciated.  In essence, they are life jackets.

History Note: The bridesmaid tradition is thought to have originated from Roman Law which required ten witnesses at a wedding in order to outsmart evil spirits (believed to attend marriage ceremonies) by dressing in identical clothing to the bride and groom so that the evil spirits would not know who was getting married.
