Guest Post: The Different Types of Bridesmaid*

What bridesmaid type do you need?

Picking out bridesmaids is one of the toughest parts of planning a wedding. Ideally, a decent mix of personalities and skills is best to make your hen do and big day memorable for the right reasons!

So, what’s the perfect group of bridesmaid types you can have? Here to help us single out the best bridesmaid characteristics is The Waterfront Hotel, a wedding venue in Bedfordshire.

The social media princess

Never off her phone and the first with all the gossip, you turn to this bridesmaid if you want to know anything about anyone. Already, she’s been stalking the photos of her newlywedded Facebook friends to find the best florists and make-up artists, and she’s still going on about setting up a hashtag and Snapchat filter for the wedding day. Although, this would make a perfect memory bank.

The social media princess is perfect for documenting your wedding in a fun way that all your guests will enjoy. Just warn her if you’re wanting a private affair, because she’ll have your first dance on a live stream and will have Instagrammed your wedding rings before they’re even on your finger…

The bridal oracle 

You’ve honestly never known anyone attend as many weddings and hen dos as this girl. Although you’re not sure how she affords it, she’s the one to turn to if you want to avoid wedding faux pas before they occur — perhaps someone at the party is getting too tipsy or she knows that two guests don’t get along and shouldn’t be placed together in the table plan…

In fact, she’s gone to that many weddings, she’s also great if you need someone to tell your guests where to stand for the ceremony . Use her to find out how other brides have done it and grill her for the most stand-out local suppliers that you should get in touch with — and the ones to avoid. The bride oracle is an ideal friend to have around pre-wedding!

Miss organised

Weddings require almost military-style organisation. And whether or not this comes naturally to you, it’s always good to have a helping hand. At the average wedding, you have about 75 daytime and 101 evening guests, so you need someone to help keep things in check on the big day while you mingle with family and friends.

When you were younger, we’re sure this girl organised all your girls’ holidays and nights out. And more recently, she probably bought you a wedding planning book and used it more than you! This bridesmaid will be the first to make sure everyone is in the right place for photos and gathering guests around the dancefloor for your first dance. Once the wedding day is over, you’ll wonder how you could’ve done it without her!

The laughing queen

Original, innovative and so funny; this bridesmaid has all the girls in stitches — and she won’t disappoint at the wedding.

It’s lovely to hear all the sweet and nice things about the bride and groom at the wedding during the speeches, but don’t underestimate the fact that your guests want some entertainment too! As she has the funniest memories to share and a way with words, you should let the laughing queen bridesmaid say something on your big day — it’s sure to make your guests giggle.

Dame cry-a-lot

This bridesmaid’s emotions are always on her sleeve and she’s never been one to hide her feelings. Sensitive and kind, she makes a great bridesmaid and will tear up as soon as you walk down the aisle. This bridesmaid is the one to consult with when you’re trying to write your wedding vows — she’ll know all the right words to say — and she’s certainly a valued member of your bridal party. But perhaps, don’t spend too much on her makeup…
