Your partner popped the first question, and now it’s time to round up your tribe and ask a special one of your own. Your wedding day is not only dreamy because you’re marrying your best friend, but because you’re doing it alongside a room full of people you adore.
Being a part of a wedding party is no small task. From showers to bachelorette parties to the big wedding weekend, you want to show your appreciation to your bridesmaids for spending the time, money, and energy to celebrate with you.
