3. New profile pic

Speaking of photos, being a bridesmaid means you’ll probably have professional beauty help in the form or a hairdresser and makeup artist. Chances are you will have a glowing (natural looking fake) tan, perfectly manicured nails, oh and a new dress.  Looking your best, this is the perfect opportunity to pose for a new profile pic for Facebook, Tinder or Match. Usually a professional photographer on hand at the wedding to do the honours.

6. The dress

Often brides get a bad rep for choosing an ugly dress, but chances are this won’t happen. Why would your super cool, stylish bestie suddenly develop bad fashion taste just in time for her wedding? Think positive and look forward to getting a brand new bridesmaid dress to keep, which you probably can wear to formal occasions in the future, not to mention new shoes and accessories.

7. Girlie bonding

If you were asked to be a bridesmaid unexpectedly, by your brother’s partner for example, or by a relatively new friend, the experience will allow you two to bond and become closer than ever before.
