We always talk about how stressful and time consuming it is to be a bridesmaid, but let’s get serious; being a bridesmaid can actually be the best job in the world.
So, before you scare your besties away from this prime position, get them to read up on all the perks of being a bridesmaid, courtesy of Mazii Collection.
1. They Get the Other Proposal
OK, so the Bride gets the main proposal, but bridesmaids get to be asked the other big question (Will You Be My Bridesmaid?), receive an awesome gift and get just as spoiled… all without the commitment of getting married! The girls from Mazii Collection are experts in providing personalised Will You Be My Bridesmaid? gifts – how could you say ‘no’ to these scented candles?
2. The Party!
Imagine getting the opportunity to create the ultimate girl’s night out. From a truckload of chocolate, a movie marathon, a cocktail drinking session and a quirky dance class, the bridesmaids literally get to bring all their crazy fantasies to life in honour of their best friend, the bride!

3. Champagne and Shopping Without the $$
Bridesmaids get to go shopping for bridal gowns, without the stress of choosing the perfect dress and keeping a budget. They’re job is to swan around bridal boutiques, check out pretty dresses, sip free champagne (because most boutiques have this on tap) and tell the bride how beautiful she looks – #winning.
4. Girl Time
Being a bridesmaid is the ultimate excuse for organising impromptu catch-ups with your besties. Stuck on a creepy date? Simply call an urgent meeting with the bride to discuss ‘serious wedding issues’. Trying to get out of a boring family lunch? Explain to the cousins that you’re needed for a dress fitting. It’s the ultimate ‘get out of jail/date/meetings’ card.
5. The Bonding
Bridesmaids should be prepared for a rollercoaster ride leading up to the wedding, but by the end of it, most find they’re closer than ever to the bride, bringing a new meaning to the term BFFE.
6. Excuse to Keep Up With the Kardashians
The fact that they’re in the bridal party is the perfect excuse to splurge on the expensive facials, laser, fortnightly spray tans and hair appointments they’ve been lusting over.

7. The Groomsmen
There’s nothing hotter than a man in a suit and as a bridesmaid, it’s only fair that you get first dibs on all the hunky bachelors at the wedding. The fact your hair and makeup is on fleek, won’t hurt either.
