Weddings mark a significant milestone in a person’s life. Although one may have had boyfriends or even a fiancé and lived together for years, a wedding always seems to be a significant occasion, not only for the happy couple, but also for the family members and friends around them. Thus, as girlfriends, there are a few things you need to do and plan out before your best friend gets married.

The hen night

Obviously, planning the hen night is a significant highlight of one of your girlfriend’s getting married. It is important to make this an event to remember and mark the end of her single life. It is also one of the few remaining times you will be able to have that wild night out or weekend without the prying husbands watching over your every move. Take on belly dancing lessons at a belly dance class and put on a show for the bride to be, make all the coolest cocktails and mix it up for the night with some killer beats. Remember to make this one of the most memorable events of your life and cherish this time you have with your girlfriends.

The weekend getaway

This can even become the hen night. Rather than a single night, this can become a whole weekend for the friends to bond at. The importance of this is to allow some breathing time for the bride to enjoy. As the wedding date draws closer, it is not lightly that people talk of the ‘bridezilla’ syndrome. Most often the brides find the chores and responsibilities too much to bear and the planning drives them over the edge. As her best friends, it is your duty to ensure that this does not happen and that should this occur, you are available to whisk her off for a weekend and to make her relax and forget about all the florists bills and the caterer’s limitations.

Join in on all the wedding finery

It isn’t every day that you get to be involved in a wedding and definitely not of your best friend’s. She will need and want your help to pick out the china, the flowers and the deserts for the ceremony along with the reception location and the honeymoon getaways. Make sure to be there and to support her and more importantly, to have fun while at it. Pick out a few items of skimpy lingerie for her to try on after the wedding, find out wife hacks and tips to looking after a household and ways of managing the annoying husband.
