Getting married is a complicated journey. For a girl, even more so. A bride has to leave her parents house and make a living with people she might not have known her whole life. But thank God for best friends, desi shaadis become even more fun because the bride has her best friend by her side.
So Attention all best friends: if you want your bride friend to have the most beautiful of memories of your friendship follow our guide below and you will surely have a happy bride- friend 🙂
1. Take her out on a surprise one day trip with your school/college friends
We are not talking something very high end or a trip that is over night (because that might be a little to hard to pull off). Take your friend to the nearest amusement park or the local heritage site, for the whole day. Prepare a picnic of sorts where it’ll be just a few select friends and you can gossip away the entire day.
2. Treat the bride-to-be to a relaxing spa date
A bride does need her beauty regime. So without letting your friend know, book an appointment at the nearest or the best spa that you know of. Consult internet and local beauty sites for the recommendations. Not only will you have a relaxing day full of massages and skin care treatments but your friend will be happy to do all these things with her buddies. Since spa’s tend to be a little on the expensive side, split the bill among all the bride’s friend and this could be your weeding gift to the bride.
3. Make a beautiful collage book with all the memories you shared
Some of us are lucky enough to have friends from childhood, others make new ones in college or school. Nevertheless all friends are equally dear to our heart and we have beautiful memories with all of them. So what better surprise can you give your bride best friend than a collage book that captures all the ups and downs, the highs and lows of your friendship. Trust me there will be a few tears when your friend goes through this surprise.
4. Dance to an amazing routine at her Mehndi that she doesn’t know you prepared
Even though mehndi is a VERY serious function and nothing should be left to chance especially the dance routines surprise your bride friend with a dance that you did not rehearse in front of her. It could be a dance to a naughty song or a song that she loves and on the actual mehndi night you will surely have her surprised with your well thought out dance routine.
5. Make sure you are with her every step of the way and that she can count on you
Not a surprise per se but a very important task as the brides’ best friend. Make sure your bride friend knows you are the person she can call in the middle of the night to rant about the darzi k nakhray or when her mum has become a little to over bearing or that she feels gulity that her father is so exhausted due to all the shaadi k kaam. Lend her a listening ear and a helping shoulder. That is after all what best friends do. <3
