Fun Bridesmaids

I have realised that during your wedding preparation, the last thing on your mind is most probably the wedding gifts.

Why do you need a wedding gift?

Wedding gifts are for thanking your fiance and your helpers.

You need to thank your fiance for trusting you and commiting himself to take care of you forever.

You also need to thank your helpers for willing to help you in your wedding planning. Without them, your wedding day won’t be possible.

“Oh no! Tomorrow is my wedding day and I haven’t got the wedding gift for my fiance!”

In fact, this is normal. Many couples, including us, actually got our wedding gifts during the last few days before our wedding day.

So, will this happen to you?

I hope not.

In fact, this post shares with you on how you can, at your convenience, get or make the wedding gift. And at the same time, give you some ideas on what to get. Though we thought that we truly understand our partner, we will be quite clueless on what to get.

Funny isn’t it? We have yet to really know the person we are getting married to.

How Helpful are these Wedding Helpers?

I just came back from my cousin’s wedding.

In Singapore, we do have two parts to our wedding day.

According to the Chinese wedding customs, this is what will happen in a wedding day.

In the morning, we have the groom coming to the bride’s home to fetch her. There will be tea-ceremony.

In the afternoon, they will return to the groom’s house. There will be another tea-ceremony.

At night, we have our wedding dinner in a hotel ballroom or a restaurant.

There are times in the afternoon that some wedding couples chose to go through the solemnisation in a church.

It again differs for different religion.

Back to my cousin’s wedding, in the morning at 9.40am, the groom came with his brothers. If I were to give them a rating upon 10 for their brotherhood, I can only give 4.5

Why this poor rating?

The brothers played him out.

Normally, the bridesmaids will play some games to test the sincerity of the groom just before he is allowed to enter the door. He was asked for to perform. Out of 5 brothers, only two went along with the flow and danced with the groom. The other 3 just hid at a corner enjoying the show.

Upon entering the house, the groom was required to eat chilli, lemon, sugar and bittergourd which resembled the 4 aspects of marriage life (spiciness, bitterness, sourness and sweetness)

In fact my cousin (who was the bride) told me just before the groom came, that the groom will be “Dead” for sure. She had called him earlier to remind him NOT to get helpers who can drink.

He must get those who can help him and overcome obstacles for him in the games session.

Whatever the bride said fell on deaf ears.

Back to what had happened earlier on, only the groom ate everything even though the bridesmaids kept on mentioning that the other brothers could help too. I realised the brothers just laughed behind him. Some even shun away and hid behind the crowd of relatives and friends, hoping no one will see him.

I’m sure the groom was really disappointed.

Even the mother-in-law came forward to tell the groom to get help from others.

Hmmm, nothing happened.

And came the part, the bridesmaids prepared dresses, bras and skilrts for the groom and his friends.

They were shown some sexy advertisment in a fashion magazine and they were to dress themselves up and posed as sexily as possible, just like what they saw in the ads.

It took them five minutes or so for them to even say, “ok, let me help.”

The groom was blushing furiously with his face all red though he was really tanned.

Roles and Responsibilities of Wedding Helpers

Wedding day is the most important day of one’s life. After you have spent the entire year planning, of course you want everything on your BIG Day to go well.

As for me, I am thankful for my helpers who helped me really alot on my wedding day. My brothers helped me in things like munching chilli in the morning, to tying my shoelaces when the banquet coordinator was briefing me about the details to helping me coordinate my wedding dinner among all helpers.

In summary, if your wedding day is coming soon, do take note of these roles (These are the roles my helpers had during our wedding day):
