Next to the bride in some of the wedding pictures you’re able to observe the bridesmaids or the maids of honor. Like in the case of the bride, the bridesmaids have to wear a particular type of dress(bridesmaid dresses), which in most of the cases is designed especially for them and also let’s add that they’re made in such a way as to have a linking element one with the other – a bridesmaid dress with the other.
The bridesmaid will always be next to the bride, not only during the wedding ceremony, but also during the wedding planning procedures and so on…. In most of the cases, the bridesmaids are chosen among young women who are not wedded and have marriageable age, so that they can also attend the ritual of tossing the bouquet and maybe catch it. Between the bridesmaids, there’s always one who is designated as being the most important between all of them( or the closest one), the maid of honor or the chief bridesmaid – she’s called in this way if she’s single and if she’s married she can be called matron of honor.
As we cleared it from the very beginning there’s always more than one bridesmaids and our modern times, the bride is the one who chooses the number of the bridesmaids. If we take it at a symbolical level, the number of bridesmaids is important for a bride due to the fact that it shows a little bit of her wealth and social status, but this happened some time in the past.

The equivalent function for the man in the wedding is the best man, also known as usher or groomsman.
The bridesmaid dresses for which the bridesmaids are going to apply for have to be chosen in group, meaning that no one will take a single decision, it’s a collective decision, which will be taken together with the bride.
In most of the cases, the bridesmaid dresses will be chosen by the bride and she takes the final decision, we sincerely don’t agree with this procedure, because after all, the bridesmaids are the ones who are going to wear these dresses and they have to have a word to say, don’t you think so?
As for the bridesmaid dresses, they have to look special and they have to match one with the other, this meaning that the color can be the same, but the style can be different or the other way around. It’s really important to make sure, as a bride, the bridesmaids feel comfortable in their bridesmaid dresses in the wedding day and you can do it through coping directly with your bridesmaids and in such a manner that you end up with a common decision.
