Everyone comes into this world with some sort of gift or talent. While some have the innate ability to sing, draw, create, or communicate, others have the natural ability to organize, plan, or coordinate events. When in comes to wedding planning most of the qualities mentioned above are vital.
As a bride, it is important to determine the special gifts or talents that your bridesmaids possess and take advantage of them. When you make use of your bridesmaids gifts you help to lighten your burden of wedding planning.
Some of the qualities that all of your bridesmaids should collectively possess is the ability to communicate, create, facilitate, lead, organize, and host. It is not necessary that each bridesmaid own every quality afore mentioned, however, it would work to your advantage if these qualities are present in part. Let's take a look at how your bridesmaids gifts can benefit you as you plan your wedding.
The ability to communicate well with others is a quality that most people do not have. If you have a bridesmaid that is an outgoing person with great communication skills then consider yourself to be lucky! The bridesmaid with the knack for communicating would most likely do well with keeping all of the other attendants informed about upcoming events, deadlines, and appointments. Her communication can be done verbally or on paper, just as long as she gets the information out there.
The creative bridesmaid should be responsible for assisting the bride with decorative ideas. If she is not the person in charge of planning the bridal shower, she should work alongside the bridal shower planner to give input to the theme, menu, shower favors, and decorations.
The bridesmaid that possesses the ability to facilitate is very instrumental in keeping the bride calm. She will most likely become the bride's right-hand woman. She will help ease the bride during stressful highpoints and assist the bride with making decisions. (Generally, this bridesmaids gift is exercised by the maid of honor.)
The bridesmaid that is better capable of organizing would make a great candidate for hosting the bridal shower. The maid of honor is generally responsible for hosting or planning the shower, however, there is no law against a bridesmaid taking on this role. Without overstepping her bounds (if she is not the maid of honor), she should work alongside the maid of honor to bring about a plan for the bridal shower.
When the bride-to-be makes use of her bridesmaids gifts, she helps to eliminate some of the potential stress that most brides undergo during wedding planning.
