One thing we get asked on the regular is, how do you support a bride-to-be without having to fork over a tonne of cash you don’t currently have? You love her, you’re totally Team Bride, and you want her to have an amazing wedding – and everything surrounding it – but you don’t have a lot of free time or cash to give…
Here are a few tips to show her you care, that won’t break the bank or encroach on your every waking minute.
Text her on the regular.
We’re not talking every.single.day. But, check in when you can. A simple “are you ok?” can mean the world to a stressed out bride-to-be.
Can’t afford a gift at every event (wedding, bridal shower, hens)? Bring some cheap but cute accessories instead.
Think cheesy feather boas and giant glasses, temporary tattoos, photo props… if you can DIY, all the better. Something to ensure a smile without emptying your wallet.
Suggest or organise a hens night or bridal shower that takes the work away from you, her, and everyone else.
You want something where you can just show up and have an amazing time. Have someone else do the hard yards for you. There are so many options available – Hens Treasure Hunt is one of the most effective.
Lend an ear.
Listen. Don’t judge. Give her a hug. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what’s going on that we forget a wedding is a celebration. Be there for each other – it’s the most important part!
