BridesmaidBridesmaid Ideas - Thanksgiving Fun for Bridesmaids
It is already time for the leaves to change color, for us to set our clocks back one hour and for Thanksgiving traditions, with the added value of being a bridesmaid during this great fall season. Bridesmaid planning can be tough during this season since there are many holiday events to get ready for.

A great bridesmaid idea is to focus on things we give thanks for, including our families, new families and friends and health/happiness. It is a great time to help the bride out with the many different choices and stressors she may have during the wedding planning. Having the bridesmaid support will mean a lot to her.

Decorate the bridal shower in fall colors and leaves also using colorful autumn flower arrangements. Ask the bride what her favorite flowers are of the season. Have the bridesmaids discuss what they give thanks for, focusing on the friendship of the bride-to-be, which is special. Have all the bridesmaids write them down for a keepsake book, which will be a great bridesmaid gift for the bride-to-be! It is always fun to play bridal shower games and spread them out during the party.

Fall is also a great time to throw a bachelorette party since the weather is more cool and venues are more open and reasonable. In this economic time, we suggest using bachelorette party fun for your supplies since they have the lowest prices, no sales tax and offer free shipping while always placing a free gift in your order.

If you are the maid of honor you can tie in the season of thanks in the maid of honor speech. Just make sure to give yourself enough time to write! In this economy, go in together with other bridesmaids on the bridal shower gift as there are great deals out there. Check out some pretty fall bridesmaid dresses and start early so you have time during this fall season to alter or make sure the bridal store gets it right. Accent the bridesmaid dresses with cute items that are fall related. It is also a great time to give during the Thanksgiving bridesmaid season so donate to one of your favorite charities if you have the funds as there are many in need. Happy Thanksgiving to all (even for those outside of the US).
