Fun fact! Where did the role of a bridesmaid originate from?

With so many of our weddings this summer hosting large bridal parties it has reminded me of the tales of the ironic but interesting origin of how the role of bridesmaids came to be…

Fun Fact! Bridesmaids were originally asked to be a part of the wedding to protect the bride from evil spirits. Dressed just like the blushing brides these bridesmaid were intended to confuse evil spirits as well as those who wished to harm the bride.

So when you are ready to ask your BFF to be your lovely bridesmaid, remember that compared to her job of planning your bachelorette party, helping you with DIY crafts, dress shopping with you, and standing next to you on your wedding day with tissues in her hand should be a walk in the park!
