You’re engaged, and you can’t think of anything better than having your BFFs by your side on your big day. But don’t be fooled! Just because they’re your besties doesn’t mean they don’t have the ability to ruin your wedding day.
Bridesmaids can go from being your saving grace to having a badly timed meltdown – à la Britney Spears – in a flash. But there are ways to get what you want and keep the peace.
If you don’t want bridesmaid drama, start with not creating drama yourself. Yes, it is your day and you’re allowed to be a selfish princess. But there’s a fine line between being the gracious queen, and being a dictator. Be nice when you can, and firm when it is called for. But if you’re always throwing a tantrum your bridesmaids will start to resent you and retaliate with similar behaviour.
