The Oxford English Dictionary defines a bridesmaid as “a young woman or girl who helps a bride before and during the marriage ceremony”. While this definition might be technically correct, any bride-to-be knows that her bridesmaids are so much more than that. 

Your bridesmaids are your friends and family. They are your confidants, your support system, your consultants, and your biggest fans. They are there to help make your wedding day special, and to provide you all the love and support you need in the time leading up to the big day.

After all that our bridesmaids do for us, don’t you think they deserve the chance to celebrate too?

If you are looking for creative ways to show your bridesmaids just how much you appreciate them, we’re here for you. Here are X fun ways that bridesmaids and brides-to-be can hang loose and celebrate before the big day!

1. Bridesmaid’s Brunch

This one seems like a no-brainer: getting all your girls together at your favorite brunch spot over the weekend. After all, your bridesmaids ought to be the kind of people you would want to have a relaxing brunch with. 

The best thing about brunch is that you get to enjoy all the food, drinks, and conversation of a nice dinner, without the pressure to get dressed up. After all, haven’t you done enough fussing over dresses and accessories for one lifetime? You can keep it as casual as you won’t- show up in leggings and a comfy t-shirt if that’s what you’re feeling! 

2. Game Night

Does brunch still feel too formal for you? We get it. Planning and getting ready for a wedding can be stressful, and before long, most brides-to-be are going to be craving a cozy night in. 

In that case, why not break out the board games, order a couple of pizzas, and hang out with your girls in the comfort of your own home? Board games are a great activity that can help your bridesmaids get to know each other a little better. You can all find out together who has a hidden competitive streak, or which one of your girls has an amazing poker face.

If your place is too cramped, one of your bridesmaids can volunteer to host. If so, don’t forget to bring a bottle of wine for her as a way of saying thank you.

3. Spa Day

Speaking of how stressful wedding planning can be, there may be an even better solution to help you relax and enjoy yourself than a night in – and that’s a day at the spa!

You can schedule a spa day months before the wedding, the day before, or even the morning of the ceremony itself. There are plenty of options on the table: a relaxing deep tissue massage might be just the thing you need, complete with a facial treatment, a mani-pedi, hot stone therapy, and more!

Many spas offer specials and group rates for wedding parties, so call your favorite local spa and ask what they can offer. You and your bridesmaids can walk out the door afterward feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and beautiful, and who’s to say you can’t go out for drinks afterward? It’s a win-win.

4. Tarot Readings

For brides-to-be and bridesmaids who are more esoterically inclined, booking a group tarot card reading can be a very memorable experience. A tarot is a useful tool for self-reflection. During the busy and stressful time leading up to a wedding, it’s important to take the time to stop and reflect.

Going to reading together can also help your bridesmaids to cultivate a deeper bond with you and with one another, and learn interesting things about each other that may never have come up over brunch or cocktails.

Your local wellness center or metaphysical store can usually point you in the direction of someone who would be happy to do a group reading for you.


It’s important to let your bridesmaids know how much you appreciate them. But don’t forget that they are more than just your bridesmaids – they have lives and busy schedules of their own. 

Remember not to feel slighted if your girls can’t attend an event or activity. They still love you, and they’re looking forward to being there for you on your big day. That’s what is most important – and that’s what friends are for.
