Choosing your bridesmaids is a tough task. Choose wisely. Tradition dictates that you should ask your sisters or your future hubby's sisters however if they don't suit your wedding maybe it's ok to choose a friend. Your bridesmaids need to be your right hand women on the day so they can't let you down.
Make sure all the girls are in their dresses before you as you should always be the last to get ready. They should be on hand to help you in to yours.
