We want to say this right up front – we love bridesmaids, and all things bridesmaid related. Some of our favourite wedding moments are the ones when we drop off the flowers and the bride and her girls are all in their cute robes and enjoying some mimosas and getting ready, and the room smells like the most delicious essence of girly-girl good times – perfume and hairspray and make-up and flowers, champagne and orange juice and those yummy snacks the terrific MOH has been careful to make sure the bride actually EATS.
We love bridesmaid images from our photographers, of the getting-ready moments, the looks of concentration on the bridesmaids’ faces as they fasten the back of The Dress, the love and the joy and the fun. We love when bridesmaids take such tender care of their friend the bride, clustering round to bustle her dress, hold her bouquet, pass her some kleenex, touch up her lipgloss. We get teary when they walk down the aisle, sometimes earnest and nervous (so sweet) and sometimes with a broad smile that says ‘I am thrilled to be here!’ We love the apres-ceremony squeals of excitement and maybe relief, the sweet reception speeches recalling shared memories of childhood.
Yes, you can call this blog a love letter to all our bridesmaids at all our weddings, You girls are terrific, and your bride is lucky to have you there to watch her back. We assembled some of our favourite bridesmaid images here. We hope you enjoy them.
