Before You Sign Up to be Bridesmaid

Hi Fabs,

We all know wedding season is steadily approaching and you may or may not be apart of the wedding party, but here's a few (not so nice) things you should know before you sign up!

1. It's expensive. The dress, shoes, hair makeup, going to all events and gifts. It all adds up. According to this article by ABC news, the average cost of being a bridesmaid in 2015 is around $1,500-1,800. Yikes, that's one months rent.

2. Bride Choices. The Bride may want you to wear a hideous dress or a hairstyle that is so out of style. Oh, ruffles are back in style? *Sigh*

3. There are several different people involved in a wedding, like know-it-all family members and friends who think they know the bride better than you do. Oh, the bride will love that! No, no she will NOT. Who are you again?

4. You may have hooked up with a groomsman or fellow bridesmaid. Awkward.

5. Figure your accommodations on the wedding night, if the wedding is far, or you plan on getting wasted, figure out where you will be staying the night of the wedding because you don't want to end up in the room of number 4 (unless you choose to, haha!).

6. It's exhausting, everything from standing up in uncomfortable heels and posing for a shitload of pictures. Bring flats!

All in all, it is an honor to be a part of this special day in these people's lives. So, just smile and suck it up if you do choose to be apart but also, know that if any of these things make you feel really uncomfortable, you can say no and get a very nice gift for the wedding.
